Final Report: UWA00112 - Western Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative Phase 3

Plain text source: 
In its third phase, the Western Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (WAHRI) project led targeted strategic and applied research aimed at minimising adverse impacts of herbicide resistance and weeds on Australian cropping... With the continuing march of ALS (Group B) and ACCase (Group A) herbicide resistance, WAHRI molecular research sought to identify the precise gene mutations endowing resistance and develop molecular markers for their rapid identification... In Program Two, considerable success has been achieved in identifying target site mutations in the enzymes ACCase, ALS and EPSPS, in identifying resistance mechanisms in the herbicides glyphosate and paraquat # and in understanding broad cross resistance endowed by P450 enzymes...
