INTRODUCTION AMAZON SPRANGLETOP
Amazon Sprangletop (Leptochloa panicoides) is a monocot weed in the Poaceae family.  In United States this weed first evolved resistance to Group A/1 herbicides in 2009 and infests Rice.   Group A/1 herbicides are known as ACCase inhibitors (Inhibition of acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACCase)).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to cyhalofop-butyl, and fenoxaprop-P-ethyl and they may be cross-resistant to other Group A/1 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.
