INTRODUCTION ROUGHSTALK BLUEGRASS
Roughstalk Bluegrass (Poa trivialis) is a monocot weed in the Poaceae family.  In France this weed first evolved resistance to Group B/2 herbicides in 2012 and infests Wheat.   Group B/2 herbicides are known as ALS inhibitors (Inhibition of acetolactate synthase ALS (acetohydroxyacid synthase AHAS)).  Research has shown that these particular biotypes are resistant to iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium, and mesosulfuron-methyl and they may be cross-resistant to other Group B/2 herbicides.

The 'Group' letters/numbers that you see throughout this web site refer to the classification of herbicides by their site of action. To see a full list of herbicides and HRAC herbicide classifications click here.
