HRAC GROUP 2 (LEGACY B) RESISTANT JOHNSONGRASS
(Sorghum halepense)


Inhibition of Acetolactate Synthase HRAC Group 2 (Legacy B)

Israel, Hulda and Telnof
INTRODUCTION JOHNSONGRASS
Johnsongrass (Sorghum halepense) is a monocot weed in the Poaceae family.  In Israel this weed first evolved resistance to Group 2 (Legacy B) herbicides in 2017 and infests Cotton, and Watermelon.   Group 2 (Legacy B) herbicides are known as Inhibition of Acetolactate Synthase (Inhibition of Acetolactate Synthase ).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to rimsulfuron and they may be cross-resistant to other Group 2 (Legacy B) 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.

ACADEMIC ASPECTS

Confirmation Tests

Greenhouse, and Laboratory trials comparing a known susceptible Johnsongrass biotype with this Johnsongrass biotype have been used to confirm resistance. For further information on the tests conducted please contact the local weed scientists that provided this information.
 
Genetics

Genetic studies on HRAC Group 2 resistant Johnsongrass have not been reported to the site.  There may be a note below or an article discussing the genetics of this biotype in the Fact Sheets and Other Literature
 
Mechanism of Resistance

Studies on the mechanism of resistance of Group 2 (Legacy B) resistant Johnsongrass from Israel indicate that resistance is due to an altered target site.  There may be a note below or an article discussing the mechanism of resistance in the Fact Sheets and Other Literature
 
Relative Fitness

There is no record of differences in fitness or competitiveness of these resistant biotypes when compared to that of normal susceptible biotypes.  If you have any information pertaining to the fitness of Group 2 (Legacy B) resistant Johnsongrass from Israel please update the database.
