Novel Tubulin Mutations Conferring Resistance to Dinitroaniline Herbicides in Lolium rigidum

This research documented target site resistance in a Lolium population resistant to trifluralin and other dinitroaniline herbicides.  Target site resistance in this particular population is endowed by changes at Arginine 243 of the alpha tubulin gene. PCR work established that amino acid substitution of Arg 243 with either Met or Lys endows 4-8 fold trifluralin resistance.

PAM: Decision Support for Long-Term Palmer Amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) Control

PAM is a bio-economic model focussed on simulations of Palmer amaranth control practices that can be used to control this devastating weed in US crop production farming systems. PAM was produced at the University of Arkansas (M Bagavathiannan now at Texas A & M), particularly involving the program led by Jason Norsworthy.
