It can be quickly conducted to the growth point, causing the deformity, withering, defoliation, and necrosis of the upper part of the plant, discoloration of xylem catheter due to blockage, eventually leading to death. The mechanism of action is the inhibition of mitochondrial respiratory system and nucleic acid metabolism.
