The purpose of this study was to investigate in laboratory the cytological effects of Agil herbicide on the onion (Allium cepa) root meristematic cells, in particular the mitotic index and mitotic abnormalities. Cytological experiments were conducted using herbicide concentrations of 0.5 ppm, 1.0 ppm and 1.5 ppm for 8 h, 24 h and 48 hours in the presence of a control for each combination of them. Mitotic index decreased with increasing the herbicide concentration at each exposure time. Also… CONTINUE READING
