INTRODUCTION AMERICAN BLACK NIGHTSHADE
American Black Nightshade (Solanum americanum) is a dicot weed in the Solanaceae family.  In New Zealand this weed first evolved resistance to Group D/22 herbicides in 2009 and infests Sweet potato.   Group D/22 herbicides are known as PSI Electron Diverter (Photosystem-I-electron diversion).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to paraquat and they may be cross-resistant to other Group D/22 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.
