Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI)

Resistance mechanisms

Understanding the biochemical and then the molecular basis of resistance commences with identifying whether resistance is due to changes at the herbicide enzyme target site (target site resistance) or due to changes elsewhere in the plant (non-target site resistance). There is a focus on ryegrass and wild radish but extending to include wild oats and other weed species.
