By A. D. Dodge (editor)

A assessment of an important parts of the biochemistry of herbicide motion. The introductory bankruptcy starts with the sphere of herbicide discovery, through chapters facing the herbicidal inhibition of photosynthesis, carotenoid biosynthesis, lipid biosynthesis, and amino acid biosynthesis. The metabolism of herbicides is mentioned with specific connection with the formation of poisonous parts from non-toxic chemical compounds, and likewise the inactivation of poisonous chemical compounds as a foundation for selectivity. the ultimate chapters are fascinated about mechanisms of herbicide resistance in crops and the opportunity of shifting resistance to weak vegetation. A thesaurus of an important herbicidal chemical compounds pointed out within the textual content is incorporated.
