A review of the most important areas of the biochemistry of herbicide action. The introductory chapter begins with the field of herbicide discovery, followed by chapters dealing with the herbicidal inhibition of photosynthesis, carotenoid biosynthesis, lipid biosynthesis, and amino acid biosynthesis. The metabolism of herbicides is discussed with particular reference to the formation of toxic. All libraries in universities, agricultural colleges and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught will need copies of this excellent book on their shelves. Reviews "This revised edition of Herbicides and Plant Physiology is an excellent addition to the bookshelf of any advisers, researchers or agronomy students. M. Manno, in Human Toxicology, INTRODUCTION. Herbicides are chemicals used to kill or damage unwanted plants or parts of them. The term derives from the Latin words herbs and caedo, meaning plant-killer. Since the early observation in – of the selective herbicidal properties of copper sulphate against Sinapis arvensis , many chemicals have been used or tested as weed-killers. Herbicide Properties Weed Control Methods Handbook, The Nature Conservancy, Tu et al. Herbicides belong to a group of chemicals known as pesticides, which prevent, destroy, repel, or mitigate any pest. Herbicides are any chemical substance that is used to specifically kill plants. Other familiar pesticides are insecticides, rodenticides, and.
The literature of biological activity of herbicides is vast. Thus, this short article contains only what we consider to be the most important aspects of the topic. The last comprehensive book on the topic  and the most recent detailed review of the entire topic  can be consulted for more details. In this article, the herbicides will be. Part of the Residue Reviews / Rückstands-Berichte book series (RECT, volume 16) Abstract The first comprehensive review of herbicide behavior in soil was provided by ennis () who described the nature of the problem and implications of downward movement, persistence, and volatility in relationship to preemergence herbicide usage.

the herbicide that its use for their control is not recommended. Herbicides a/nd Mixmg of Spray Materials.— This section describes formulations of herbicides and gives directions for mixing with carriers and diluents. It discusses the bases for comparison of various commercial preparations of a herbi- cide and lists the requirements for good. Abstract. We have made a survey of the published literature on the mutagenicity in procaryotes of herbicides. The importance of the study of the possible mutagenic or genotoxic effects of pesticides is evident: the great majority of people all over the world are exposed daily to minute amounts of pesticides present in their food, and a smaller number of people (agricultural workers and workers.
