MULTIPLE RESISTANT GIANT RAGWEED
(Ambrosia trifida)


Multiple Resistance: 2 Sites of Action
ALS inhibitors (B/2)
EPSP synthase inhibitors (G/9)

United States, Minnesota
INTRODUCTION GIANT RAGWEED
Giant Ragweed (Ambrosia trifida) is a dicot weed in the Asteraceae family.  In Minnesota this weed first evolved multiple resistance (to 2 herbicide sites of action) in 2008 and infests Soybean.  Multiple resistance has evolved to herbicides in the Groups B/2, and G/9.  These particular biotypes are known to have resistance to cloransulam-methyl, and glyphosate and they may be cross-resistant to other herbicides in the Groups B/2, and G/9.

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.

If we do not have a picture for this weed, or you can provide a better picture (scan, digital camera etc) please please e-mail it to us.

ACADEMIC ASPECTS

Confirmation Tests

Field, and Greenhouse trials comparing a known susceptible Giant Ragweed biotype with this Giant Ragweed 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 B, G/2, 9 resistant Giant Ragweed 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 Giant Ragweed from Minnesota please update the database.
