By Alan D. Dodge (auth.), Ralph C. Kirkwood (eds.)

The improvement of chemical compounds to selectively regulate the expansion of weeds has been a desirable good fortune tale which has opened up principally over the last 4 many years. The dramatic progress of herbicide examine that the wartime discoveries of the auxin-type herbicides (phenoxyalkanoic acids) led to a complete variety of compounds and combos that are used to do away with broad-or narrow-leaved weeds from agricultural, horticul­ tural, or forestry vegetation. this present day, the secure use of this armament of compounds calls for our realizing in their mode of motion, metabolism, and environmental endurance. the main lately built herbicides are powerful inhibitors of particular enzyme platforms, and formula could be an incredible issue deciding upon their effective supply at particular objective websites. during this publication, the foremost aim websites of herbicide motion are mentioned in Chapters 1-5, with specific connection with photosynthesis; amino acid, lipid, and carotenoid synthesis; and different fundamental aim websites. the results of synergists or antagonists as modifiers of herbicide motion are defined in bankruptcy 6. the significance of effective aim website supply as a basic think about herbicide job and selectivity is mostly famous. supply of a almost certainly deadly dose of lively aspect may perhaps rely on an entire diversity of things together with the potency of program, retention, absorption, translocation, immobilization, and detoxing. those elements are con­ sidered within the closing chapters, with specific connection with the pathways and mechanisms fascinated about the uptake, translocation, and metabolism of soil-and foliage-applied herbicides.
