Abstract: Disclosed are solid, phytoactive, N-phosphonomethyl-N-carboxymethyl compositions. Also disclosed are processes for the preparation of such compositions by(a) forming an initial mixture comprising a phytoactive N-phosphonomethyl-N-carboxymethyl compound, a solvent and a molten surfactant, the surfactant being solid at ambient temperatures;(b) removing solvent from the initial mixture to form a final mixture at a temperature above the melting point of the surfactant;(c) cooling the final mixture to a temperature below the melting point of the surfactant to form a N-phosphonomethyl-N-carboxymethyl composition which is solid at ambient temperatures; and(d) processing said composition into particulate form, such as pellets, flakes, granules, or powders.
Abstract: A method for killing or controlling weeds in a soya crop, which method comprises applying to the crop or to the location thereof a compound of formula (I): ##STR1## in an amount sufficient to kill the weeds but insufficient to kill the crop.
