INTERNATIONAL HERBICIDE-RESISTANT WEED DATABASE

INTRODUCTION WILD OAT
Wild Oat (Avena fatua) is a monocot weed in the Poaceae family.  In Alberta this weed first evolved multiple resistance (to 2 herbicide sites of action) in 1989 and infests Cereals, and Spring Barley.  Multiple resistance has evolved to herbicides in the Groups N/8, and Z/8.  These particular biotypes are known to have resistance to difenzoquat, and triallate and they may be cross-resistant to other herbicides in the Groups N/8, and Z/8.

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.

MECHANISM

Hugh Beckie
Elevated endogenous levels of giberellins is proposed as a single mechanism responsible for triallate and difenzoquat resistance.

ACADEMIC ASPECTS

Confirmation Tests

Field, and Greenhouse trials comparing a known susceptible Wild Oat biotype with this Wild Oat 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 Group N, Z/8, 8 resistant Wild Oat 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

The mechanism of resistance for this biotype is either unknown or has not been entered in the database.  If you know anything about the mechanism of resistance for this biotype then please update the database.
 
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 multiple resistant Wild Oat from Alberta please update the database.
