Alachlor is an aniline herbicide used to control annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds in field corn, soybeans, and peanuts. It is a selective systemic herbicide, absorbed by germinating shoots and by roots. The compound works by interfering with a plants ability to synthesize protein and by interfering with root elongation. (Ref: CDC ATSDR)
