Cydus is a leading non-selective and post-emergence fast acting contact herbicide.
Mode of action: It acts by inhibiting photosynthesis. In sunlight-exposed plants, it accepts electrons from photosystem I (more specifically ferredoxin, which is presented with electrons from PS I) and transfers them to molecular oxygen. In this manner, destructive reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced.
