What are the different groups of herbicides?

There are two major categories of herbicides classified by mode of action: contact herbicides and translocated herbicides. Contact herbicides affect only the part of the plant that they touch. Absorption through foliage is minimal.

What is a Group 4 herbicide?

Dicamba, the active ingredient in Engenia, is a Group 4 (WSSA) herbicide. Herbicides in this group mimic auxin (a plant hormone) resulting in a hormone imbalance in susceptible plants that interferes with normal plant growth (e.g. cell division, cell enlargement, and protein synthesis).

Which country has the highest number of herbicide resistant weeds in the world?

The USA leads the world in the area planted to Roundup Ready crops and consequently has the highest number of glyphosate-resistant weed species (13) Table 2.

What plants do herbicides target?

They usually kill mainly broad-leaveled weeds but, not the grasses. The non-selective ones include glyphosate and they affect most plants both grasses and broad-leaved.

What are Group 15 herbicides?

Acetamide, chloroacetamide, oxyacetamide, and tetrazolinone herbicides (Group 15) are examples of herbicides that are currently thought to inhibit very long chain fatty acid (VLCFA) synthesis (Husted et al. 1966; Böger et al. 2000).

What is Group B herbicide?

Group B herbicides are presently the only in-crop herbicides that provide effective control of these grass weeds and this poses a severe risk of Group B resistance for growers with cereal dominant rotations.

What is a Group 6 herbicide?

Phenylcarbamates, pyridazinones, triazines, triazinones, uracils (Group 5), amides, ureas (Group 7), benzothiadiazinones, nitriles, and phenylpyridazines (Group 6), are examples of herbicides that inhibit photosynthesis by binding to the QB-binding niche on the D1 protein of the photosystem II complex in chloroplast …

What herbicides are Group 14?

GROUP 14 Inhibitors of protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPOs)
N-Phenyl-oxadiazolones oxadiargyl (Raft®), oxadiazon (Ronstar®)
Phenylpyrazole pyraflufen (Condor*®, Ecopar®, Sledge® Pyresta®*)
N-Phrnyl-tiazolinones carfentrazone (Affinity®, Aptitude®*, Broadway®, Buffalo Pro Weedkiller®*, Silverado®*)

What are resistant weeds?

A herbicide-resistant weed is a weed species that has developed the ability to survive application of a herbicide which previously controlled it. The intensive and continuous use of the same herbicide(s) over the last few decades has resulted in the evolution of herbicide-resistant weeds.

What is the most common herbicide?

Glyphosate—known by many trade names, including Roundup—has been the most widely used herbicide in the United States since 2001.
