Investigating the impact of soil type, soil moisture, and soil surface residue cover on the efficacy of Diflufenican
Diflufenican is a pre-emergent and early post-emergent herbicide that inhibits phytoene desaturase, an essential enzyme in the biosynthesis of carotenoids. It has been used effectively in overseas markets such as Europe and Australia, but it never has been registered for use in the United States. With the herbicide resistance issues in the United States continuing to increase each year, the necessity for developing effective options to combat herbicide-resistant weeds magnifies. Recently, Bayer CropScience has begun research into developing diflufenican as a tool to manage herbicide-resistant ...
