Turning up the dimmer switch on P450s

AHRI researcher Qin Yu recently teamed up with a team of Chinese scientists to show that a case of metabolic resistance in Barnyard grass in China is likely associated with epigenetics. There were no changes to the genetic code of the plant, but there were changes in the expression of a specific P450 gene.

2,4-D synergises metribuzin

Synergy between herbicides is rare, but extremely sort after and this synergy is often claimed but it takes a specific research technique to confirm the synergy. Australian farmers and agronomists have previously observed synergy between phenoxy herbicides (2,4-D) and PSII herbicides (Group C / Group 3 herbicides such as metribuzin) and now we know why, thanks to this new AHRI research.
