- We have studied the effect of three herbicides viz., triazole, pyrazon and metribuzin on total chlorophyll, carotenoids and cell protein in leaves, and PS II and PS I activity in the chloroplasts isolated from control and herbicide treated pea plants. Pyrazon and metribuzin at 10μм concentration affect these parameters resulting in the chlorosis of the leaves.
