GROUP B/2 RESISTANT ORIENTAL MUSTARD
(Sisymbrium orientale)


ALS inhibitors (B/2)

Australia, Western Australia
INTRODUCTION ORIENTAL MUSTARD
Oriental Mustard (Sisymbrium orientale) is a dicot weed in the Brassicaceae family.  In Western Australia this weed first evolved resistance to Group B/2 herbicides in 1994 and infests Cereals, Spring Barley, and Wheat.   Group B/2 herbicides are known as ALS inhibitors (Inhibition of acetolactate synthase ALS (acetohydroxyacid synthase AHAS)).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to chlorsulfuron, and metosulam and they may be cross-resistant to other Group B/2 herbicides.

The 'Group' letters/numbers that you see throughout this web site refer to the classification of herbicides by their site of action. To see a full list of herbicides and HRAC herbicide classifications click here.

NOTES ABOUT THIS BIOTYPE

CONTROL STRATEGIES

Christopher Preston
Resistant to sulfonylureas and metosulam. Can use the phenoxy herbicides, thus the cost is not more to control this species. Resistance was confirmed to SU and triazole pyrimidine herbicides in a glasshouse expt.
