Source: Used as an herbicide to control plants and weeds.
Summary: Picloram is an organochlorine used as a pesticide to control weeds and plants. It is soluble in water up to 403 mg/L at 25 C. It has an acid dissociation constant of pKa = 2.3 at 22 C. Koc values ranging from 0.026 to 100 indicate moderate to very high mobility within soil. Biodegradation is expected to be a major method of removal from water and soil.
