PSII inhibitors - Serine 264 Binders HRAC Group 5 (Legacy C1 C2)

United States, Washington
INTRODUCTION POWELL AMARANTH
Powell Amaranth (Amaranthus powellii) is a dicot weed in the Amaranthaceae family.  In Washington this weed first evolved resistance to Group 5 (Legacy C1 C2) herbicides in 1992 and infests Mint.   Group 5 (Legacy C1 C2) herbicides are known as PSII inhibitors - Serine 264 Binders (Inhbition of Photosynthesis at PSll - Serine 264 Binders ).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to terbacil and they may be cross-resistant to other Group 5 (Legacy C1 C2) 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.
