Phytotoxic Effects of Three Natural Compounds: Pelargonic Acid, Carvacrol, and Cinnamic Aldehyde, against Problematic Weeds in Mediterranean Crops

Three natural products: pelargonic acid (PA), carvacrol (CV), and cinnamic aldehyde (CA) were evaluated against problematic weeds in Mediterranean crops to determine their phytotoxic potential, and showed a potent herbicidal activity.

Reduction of Herbicidal Toxicoses on Plants Using Berkana and Izabion Organomineral Fertilizers

Today herbicidal treatments become an obligatory component of agrotechnical activities required for plant cultivation. At the same time, being biologically active compounds, herbicides may negatively

Efficacy of Metribuzin Doses on Physiological, Growth, and Yield Characteristics of Wheat and Its Associated Weeds

Weeds cause a serious constraint to wheat productivity. Chemical weed control is considered the most effective method to control weeds; however, a suitable dose and combination of herbicide with

Biochemical analysis, photosynthetic gene (psbA) down–regulation, and in silico receptor prediction in weeds in response to exogenous application of phenolic acids and their analogs

Chemical herbicides are the primary weed management tool, although several incidences of herbicide resistance have been emerged, causing serious threat to agricultural sustainability. Plant derived

Sensitivity Assessment of Varieties, Effectiveness of Weed Control by Selected Herbicides, and Infection of the Fusarium in Maize (Zea mays L.) Cultivation

The genetic distance between selected maize varieties and species composition of pathogens of the genus Fusarium isolated from the seeds of the discussed crop were examined and no relationship was found between the genetic distance of maize varietiesand their sensitivity to selected herbicides.

Analysis of the Sensitivity of Spring Wheat and White Mustard Seedlings to the Essential Oil of Parsley Seeds

Essential oils are a rich source of compounds for botanical pesticides. This study aimed to characterize the chemical composition of essential oil from parsley seeds and its phytotoxicity against the

Strategies for Enhancing in vitro Degradation of Linuron by Variovorax sp. Strain SRS 16 Under the Guidance of Metabolic Modeling

Simulations are shown to be efficient in predicting the degradation potential of SRS 16 in the presence of specific supplements and contribute to the understanding of the biochemistry of linuron degradation and can be further utilized for the development of new cleanup solutions without any genetic manipulation.

Chemical Properties of Soil and Cassava Yield as a Function of Weed Management by Cover Crops in the Amazon Ecosystem

Cassava (Manihot esculenta) yields are severely affected by the interference of weed plants. Using cover crops for weed control appears as a sustainable alternative practice because it maintains the



Herbicides residues in soil, water, plants and non-targeted organisms and human health implications: an Indian perspective

It can be concluded that in India herbicide contamination of soil, plants and natural waters occurs infrequently and at low levels.

Herbicide Resistance: Toward an Understanding of Resistance Development and the Impact of Herbicide-Resistant Crops

Development of herbicide-resistant crops has resulted in significant changes to agronomic practices, one of which is the adoption of effective, simple, low-risk, crop-production systems with less

Herbicides are widely used to provide more effective and economic means of weed control in the crop production, horticultural use and landscape management. From the perspective of environmental

Toxicological Effects of Traumatic Acid and Selected Herbicides on Human Breast Cancer Cells: In Vitro Cytotoxicity Assessment of Analyzed Compounds

TA in a concentration-dependent manner might influence selected effects of the studied herbicides for particular cancer cells lines, and is concluded to act as a compound that delays the stimulatory effect of pesticides on breast cancer cells.

Environmental and health effects of the herbicide glyphosate.

Transformation of Herbicides in the Environment

The share of herbicides in Indian agriculture is increasing at a fast rate. Presently, it is well around 30% among all other pesticide groups. Farmers are becoming more inclined towards herbicide

Hormone-like herbicides in weed control

Picloram is probably most phytotoxic to crops, such as tobacco, beans, and potatoes, and may persist for one year or less in the environment, however, the continuing presence of picloram in the soil makes it effective for perennial weed control.

Herbicide resistance and biodiversity: agronomic and environmental aspects of genetically modified herbicide-resistant plants

The analysed data and experiences do not support statements that herbicide-resistant crops provide consistently better yields than conventional crops or reduce herbicide amounts, and show that the adoption of herbicides- resistant crops impacts agronomy, agricultural practice, and weed management and contributes to biodiversity loss in several ways.
