GROUP G/9 RESISTANT RUSSIAN-THISTLE
(Salsola tragus)


EPSP synthase inhibitors (G/9)

Argentina, West of Buenos Aires Province
INTRODUCTION RUSSIAN-THISTLE
Russian-thistle (Salsola tragus) is a dicot weed in the Chenopodiaceae family.  In Argentina this weed first evolved resistance to Group G/9 herbicides in 2019 and infests Soybean.   Group G/9 herbicides are known as EPSP synthase inhibitors (Inhibition of EPSP synthase).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to glyphosate and they may be cross-resistant to other Group G/9 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.
