GROUP K1/3 RESISTANT GREEN FOXTAIL
(Setaria viridis)


Microtubule inhibitors (K1/3)

Canada, Saskatchewan
INTRODUCTION GREEN FOXTAIL
Green Foxtail (Setaria viridis) is a monocot weed in the Poaceae family.  In Saskatchewan this weed first evolved resistance to Group K1/3 herbicides in 1991 and infests Canola, Flax, Spring Barley, and Wheat.   Group K1/3 herbicides are known as Microtubule inhibitors (Microtubule assembly inhibition).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to ethalfluralin, and trifluralin and they may be cross-resistant to other Group K1/3 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 Green Foxtail biotype with this Green Foxtail 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 K1/3 resistant Green Foxtail 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 Group K1/3 resistant Green Foxtail from Saskatchewan please update the database.
