Response of 2,4-D resistant biotype of Fimbristylis miliacea (L.) Vahl. to several herbicides and its distribution in the Muda area , Malaysia




Biotype of Fimbristylis miliacea (L.) Vahl. resistant to 2,4-D was found in the Muda area, Malaysia, which was 29 times more resistant to 2,4-D dimethylamine than the susceptible biotype. The 2,4-D resistant biotype was also resistant to other phenoxy compounds including MCPA, but no difference was observed in the reaction toward propanil, paraquat and glufosinate ammonium between the biotypes. Other types of herbicides with different modes of action could be useful to control the 2,4-D resistant biotype.
