  author={Patrick J. Tranel and Terry R. Wright},
Terry R. Wright Dow AgroSciences, LLC., 753 Highway 438, Greenville, MS 38701 Herbicides that target the enzyme acetolactate synthase (ALS) are among the most widely used in the world. Unfortunately, these herbicides are also notorious for their ability to select resistant (R) weed populations. Now, there are more weed species that are resistant to ALS-inhibiting herbicides than to any other herbicide group. In most cases, resistance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides is caused by an altered ALS… CONTINUE READING
