The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of different temperatures on the degradation of ametryn, hexazinone and diuron molecules in a typical Dystroferric Red Latosol incubated at 25, 35, 40 and 45°C, with soil moisture of5 70% of field capacity. Diuron and hexazinone herbicides were more persistent under warmer temperature conditions (25°C). On the other hand, ametryn showed higher persistence in the soil at higher temperature (45°C) conditions. The half-life values for the three herbicides at different temperatures ranged from 24 to 77 days for ametryn, 30 to 77 days for hexazinone and 32 to 99 days for diuron.
