The fate of acetochlor herbicide was investigated in corn /Zea mays L./ in nutrition solution culture experiments with and without R-25788 antidote. The antidote was found to slightly stimulate tthe absorption but retard the translocation of acetochlor labelled with14C in the carbonyl group. The degradation of the herbicide and the formation of the acetochlor GSH conjugate were faster in the antidote treated plants than in the untreated controls.
