Technical Abstract: The imidazolinone herbicides were discovered and developed in the 1980s and 1990s (Shaner and Singh, 1997). Imazethapyr and imazamox are the mostly widely used imidazolinones in Canada. Although imazamox and imazethapyr are applied early postemergence, they do have residual activity. Imazamox dissipates more rapidly than imazethapyr in the soil. The most important factors affecting the soil activity of the imidazolinones are soil organic matter, pH, moisture and temperature.
