A Novel 5-Enolpyruvylshikimate-3-Phosphate Synthase from Rahnella aquatilis with Significantly Reduced Glyphosate Sensitivity  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

The 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS; EC 2.5.1.19) is a key enzyme in the shikimate pathway for the production of aromatic amino acids and chorismate-derived secondary metabolites in plants, fungi, and microorganisms. It is also the target of the broad-spectrum herbicide glyphosate. Natural glyphosate resistance is generally thought to occur within microorganisms in a strong selective pressure condition. Rahnella aquatilis strain GR20, an antagonist against pathogenic agroba...

Reduction in growth of strains in the lowest glyphosate concentration were 18% for SEMIA 5079, 29% for SEMIA 5019 and 35% for SEMIA 587. In general, the higher the concentration of the herbicide in the culture medium, the greater the growth inhibition. The strains showed differential sensitivity only at the lowest concentrations of glyphosate, allowing the determination of the following order of sensitivity: SEMIA 587>SEMIA 5019>SEMIA 5079. This differential sensitivity is dependent on the herbicide concentration, since in the presence of 43.2 µg L-1 all strains severely reduced growth, not showing difference among them.

Glyphosate spray drift in Coffea arabica - sensitivity of coffee plants and possible use of shikimic acid as a biomarker for glyphosate exposure.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is widely used in coffee plantations to control weeds. Lacking selectivity, glyphosate spray drift is suspected to cause adverse effects in coffee plants. Symptoms caused by glyphosate can be similar to those produced by other stress factors. However, shikimic acid accumulation should be a useful biomarker for glyphosate exposure as shown for other crops. The aim of this study was to assess the sensitivity of coffee plants towards glyphosate on different biological response variables and to evaluate the use of shikimic acid as biomarker. Dose-response experiments yielded ED50 values (50% effect dose) in the range of 38-550 ga.e.ha(-1) depending on the quantitative or qualitative variable monitored. The frequency of plants showing symptoms was the most sensitive variable. The best sampling time for shikimic acid accumulation was 1-2 weeks after glyphosate application, depending on experimental conditions. The highest shikimic acid accumulation was observed in young leaves. Shikimic acid is a suitable biomarker for a glyphosate exposure in coffee, using only young leaves for the analysis. Young coffee plants are susceptible to glyphosate damage. If symptoms are absent the risk of severe crop damage or yield loss is low. PMID:25307461

Anatomia foliar de Lolium multiflorum sensível e resistente ao glyphosate / Leaf anatomy of Lolium multiflorum sensitive and resistant to glyphosate  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Este trabalho foi desenvolvido com o intuito de contribuir para o conhecimento anatômico da espécie Lolium multiflorum e, a partir disso, observar possíveis alterações que possam elucidar o mecanismo que confere resistência ao herbicida glyphosate. Para isso, realizou-se um experimento com quatro bi [...] ótipos dessa espécie com distinta sensibilidade ao herbicida glyphosate, sendo um sensível (B1S) e três resistentes (B2R, B3R e B4R). As análises ocorreram a partir de secções transversais e longitudinais dos órgãos vegetativos de plantas no estádio de afilhamento. Anatomicamente, o azevém caracteriza-se por apresentar grande quantidade de estômatos e de células buliformes, bem como mesofilo homogêneo constituído apenas de células paliçádicas compactamente distribuídas. Comparativamente, não ocorrem diferenças morfológicas evidentes que possam ser usadas para diferir biótipos sensíveis de resistentes, no entanto, nota-se que biótipos resistentes, especialmente B3R e B4R, apresentaram maior densidade estomática em relação aos demais. Ainda, os biótipos resistentes apresentaram maior quantidade de espaços intercelulares no mesofilo e feixes vasculares com menor quantidade de floema em relação ao xilema, o que, por suas funções na planta, pode colaborar para a menor sensibilidade ao herbicida. Abstract in english This work aimed to contribute to the anatomical knowledge of the species Lolium multiflorum and to observe possible changes that may elucidate the mechanism that confers its resistance to the herbicide glyphosate. Thus, an experiment was conducted using four biotypes of this species with distinct se [...] nsitivities to the herbicide glyphosate: one susceptible (B1S) and three resistant biotypes (B2R, B3R and B4R). Analyses were conducted on the transverse and longitudinal sections of the vegetative organs of the plants at the tillering stage. Anatomically, ryegrass is characterized as having a large number of stomata and buliform cells as well as homogeneous mesophylls constituted only of palisade cells compactly distributed. Comparatively, no evident morphological differences occur that can be used to distinguish sensitive from resistant biotypes; however, the resistant biotypes, especially B3R B4R, presented higher stomatal density, compared to the others. Still, the resistant biotypes had a higher amount of intercellular spaces in the mesophyll and vascular bundles with a smaller amount of phloem compared to the xylem, which, because of their functions in the plants, may contribute to the lower sensitivity to the herbicide.

Efeito de doses reduzidas de glyphosate e paraquat simulando deriva na cultura do milho Effect of reduced rates of glyphosate and paraquat simulating drift in corn crop  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A aplicação de herbicidas, seja para a dissecação de culturas ou para o controle de plantas daninhas, vem crescendo, devido a expansão da fronteira agrícola brasileira. Esse fato aumenta os riscos de ocorrência de deriva acidental em culturas vizinhas suscetíveis. As perdas em produtividade são desconhecidas em muitas situações de ocorrência de deriva de herbicidas. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a possível toxicidade causada pela deriva de doses reduzidas de dois herbicidas (glyphosate e paraquat no período inicial de desenvolvimento da cultura do milho. Foram utilizadas cinco doses simulando deriva - 2, 4, 6, 8 e 12% da dose recomendada (1.440 g ha-1 de glyphosate e 400 g ha-1 de paraquat - sobre o cultivar de milho híbrido triplo BRS 3123. No florescimento, foram avaliados altura da planta, área foliar, peso da matéria seca, teor de clorofila e sintomas visuais de injúria. Na colheita, avaliaram-se estande final, peso de espigas, peso de 1.000 grãos e produção de grãos. A altura das plantas, a área foliar e o peso da matéria seca não foram afetados pelo efeito das derivas nos dois anos agrícolas (1996/97 e 1997/98, exceto pela área foliar, que em 1997/98 sofreu redução, sobretudo no tratamento com 12% da dose normal de glyphosate. De maneira geral, os resultados obtidos para as demais características foram semelhantes nos dois anos de condução do ensaio. O teor de clorofila nas folhas e o estande final não foram afetados pelas doses reduzidas. O grau de toxicidade, avaliado por meio de plantas injuriadas pela deriva, aos 7, 14 e 21 dias após a aplicação dos herbicidas, apresentou diferenças significativas. Os maiores danos foram observados com a maior subdose simulando deriva dos herbicidas. O peso de 1.000 grãos não foi afetado, ao passo que a produção de espigas e de grãos foi severamente prejudicada. Observou-se que a deriva simulada dos herbicidas em altas concentrações afetou o desenvolvimento das plantas e reduziu a produção de grãos. Já a aplicação em baixas concentrações (2 a 4% não afetou o desenvolvimento das plantas nem tampouco a produtividade.Herbicide application has increased considerably in the Brazilian agriculture over the last years, either for weed management or crop desiccation. The intensive use of herbicide shas brought risks of drift in sensitive neighbor crops. Drift effects on crops susceptible to herbicides is not well quantified in several situations. The objective of this study was to evaluate the injuries caused by simulated herbicide drift on the initial phase of growth of the maize crop. Two herbicides with five concentrations of simulated drift were used: 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12% of the recommended rate (1,440 g ha-1 of glyphosate and 400 g ha-1 of paraquat, sprayed over the top foliage of the maize triple hybrid BRS 3123. Plant height, leaf area, dry weight, leaf chlorophyll content and visual symptoms of injury were evaluated at flowering time. Final stand, ear weight, 1,000 grains weight and grain production. Plant height, leaf area, leaf chlorophyll content and dry weight were not affected by simulated drifts in both years (1996/97 and 1997/98, except the leaf area in 1997/98, which had a reduction especially in the treatment where 12% of the glyphosate rate was used. In general, the results for the other traits were similar in both years in which the trials were carried out. At harvesting time, final stand and weight of 1,000 grains were not affected by simulated drifts, whereas ear weight and grain production were severely affected. The degree of visual injuries evaluated through percentage of plants injured by drift at 7, 14 and 21 days after herbicide application showed significant differences. The major damages were observed with the greater dosage of simulated drift. Weight of 1,000 grains was not affected, whereas ears and grain production were severely affected. Herbicide drift in high concentrations affected the plant development and reduced grain production while application of glyphosate and paraqu

Full Text Available O consumo de madeira no Brasil e no mundo apresenta demanda crescente. Em confronto com a pressão ambientalista de manutenção das florestas nativas, há necessidade de se estabelecerem áreas de reflorestamento para suprir o aumento da demanda de madeira, com a utilização de formas de manejo e tratos culturais que permitam o pleno crescimento das essências florestais.

Efeito de doses reduzidas de glyphosate e paraquat simulando deriva na cultura do sorgo Effect of reduced rates of glyphosate and paraquat simulating drift on sorghum crop  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A aplicação de herbicidas, seja para dessecação de culturas ou para controle de plantas daninhas, vem crescendo, devido à expansão da fronteira agrícola brasileira. Esse fato aumenta os riscos de ocorrência de deriva acidental em culturas vizinhas suscetíveis; no entanto, as perdas em produtividade dessas culturas são desconhecidas em muitas situações de ocorrência de deriva de herbicidas. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a fitotoxicidade causada por doses reduzidas dos herbicidas glyphosate e paraquat simulando deriva, bem como seus efeitos, no desenvolvimento das plantas e no rendimento de grãos de sorgo. O estudo foi conduzido durante os anos agrícolas 1996/97 e 1997/98, utilizando-se o híbrido BR 700 no delineamento de blocos ao acaso, com 12 tratamentos e quatro repetições. Foram utilizadas cinco doses reduzidas simulando deriva - 2, 4, 6, 8 e 12% da dose recomendada (dose recomendada: 1.440 g ha-1 de glyphosate e 400 g ha-1 de paraquat - e duas testemunhas sem aplicação de herbicidas para comparação. Área foliar e peso da matéria seca não foram afetados pelos tratamentos de deriva, ao passo que a altura da planta foi reduzida sobretudo nas maiores doses dos herbicidas. O teor de clorofila foi afetado apenas no ano agrícola 1997/98, ocorrendo maior porcentagem de injúrias à medida que se aumentou a concentração de deriva. No ano agrícola 1996/97, os danos observados na parte aérea foram maiores e o estande final chegou a ser reduzido pela maior dose de glyphosate. Com relação à produtividade, somente no ano agrícola 1996/97 houve redução devido à deriva, em que a maior concentração de glyphosate resultou em menor peso de panículas e de grãos. No ano agrícola 1997/98, não houve efeito de deriva nas características de produção, em razão, provavelmente, da influência de fatores climáticos. O sorgo é uma planta sensível à ação de herbicidas não-seletivos; doses reduzidas, tanto de glyphosate como de paraquat, correspondentes a 12% ou menos da dose recomendada, podem influir no desenvolvimento das plantas, comprometendo a produtividade de grãos, sobretudo quando as condições climáticas são favoráveis à ação desses herbicidas.Herbicide application for crop desiccation or weed control has been growing due to the expansion of the Brazilian agricultural frontier. This fact increases the risks of drift to susceptible crops grown in the vicinity areas; however, several questions are frequently raised about possible losses in grain yield of these crops due to herbicide drift. The objective of this work was to evaluate injuries caused by reduced rates of glyphosate and paraquat simulating drift and its effect on sorghum plant development and grain production. The study was carried out during the crop growing seasons of 1996/97 and 1997/98. The hybrid BR 700 was used in a randomized complete block design, with 12 treatments and four replications. The treatments were performed by the combination of two herbicides with five concentrations of simulated drift: 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12% of the recommended rates (1,440 g ha-1 of glyphosate and 400 g ha-1 of paraquat, and two check treatments without herbicide application for compressions. Leaf area and dry matter weight were not affected by drift, whereas plant height was reduced, especially by the highest herbicide reduced rate. The chlorophyll content was slightly affected in the growing season 1997/98, whereas the visual symptoms, in both growing seasons, resulted in higher percentage of injuries while concentration drift increased. The leaf damages observed were greater at the growing season 1996/97. Also in this growing season, the final stand was reduced by the highest glyphosate rate. As far as grain production is concerned, only the growing season 1996/97 presented yield reduction due to drift, when the highest rate of glyphosate resulted in the lowest grain weight.

Efeito de doses reduzidas de glyphosate e paraquat simulando deriva na cultura do milho / Effect of reduced rates of glyphosate and paraquat simulating drift in corn crop

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese A aplicação de herbicidas, seja para a dissecação de culturas ou para o controle de plantas daninhas, vem crescendo, devido a expansão da fronteira agrícola brasileira. Esse fato aumenta os riscos de ocorrência de deriva acidental em culturas vizinhas suscetíveis. As perdas em produtividade são desc [...] onhecidas em muitas situações de ocorrência de deriva de herbicidas. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a possível toxicidade causada pela deriva de doses reduzidas de dois herbicidas (glyphosate e paraquat) no período inicial de desenvolvimento da cultura do milho. Foram utilizadas cinco doses simulando deriva - 2, 4, 6, 8 e 12% da dose recomendada (1.440 g ha-1 de glyphosate e 400 g ha-1 de paraquat) - sobre o cultivar de milho híbrido triplo BRS 3123. No florescimento, foram avaliados altura da planta, área foliar, peso da matéria seca, teor de clorofila e sintomas visuais de injúria. Na colheita, avaliaram-se estande final, peso de espigas, peso de 1.000 grãos e produção de grãos. A altura das plantas, a área foliar e o peso da matéria seca não foram afetados pelo efeito das derivas nos dois anos agrícolas (1996/97 e 1997/98), exceto pela área foliar, que em 1997/98 sofreu redução, sobretudo no tratamento com 12% da dose normal de glyphosate. De maneira geral, os resultados obtidos para as demais características foram semelhantes nos dois anos de condução do ensaio. O teor de clorofila nas folhas e o estande final não foram afetados pelas doses reduzidas. O grau de toxicidade, avaliado por meio de plantas injuriadas pela deriva, aos 7, 14 e 21 dias após a aplicação dos herbicidas, apresentou diferenças significativas. Os maiores danos foram observados com a maior subdose simulando deriva dos herbicidas. O peso de 1.000 grãos não foi afetado, ao passo que a produção de espigas e de grãos foi severamente prejudicada. Observou-se que a deriva simulada dos herbicidas em altas concentrações afetou o desenvolvimento das plantas e reduziu a produção de grãos. Já a aplicação em baixas concentrações (2 a 4%) não afetou o desenvolvimento das plantas nem tampouco a produtividade.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the injuries caused by simulated herbicide drift on the initial phase of growth of the maize crop. Two herbicides with five concentrations of simulated drift were used: 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12% of the recommended rate (1,440 g ha-1 of glyphosate and 400 g ha-1 of paraquat), sprayed over the top foliage of the maize triple hybrid BRS 3123. Plant height, leaf area, dry weight, leaf chlorophyll content and visual symptoms of injury were evaluated at flowering time. Final stand, ear weight, 1,000 grains weight and grain production. Plant height, leaf area, leaf chlorophyll content and dry weight were not affected by simulated drifts in both years (1996/97 and 1997/98), except the leaf area in 1997/98, which had a reduction especially in the treatment where 12% of the glyphosate rate was used. In general, the results for the other traits were similar in both years in which the trials were carried out. At harvesting time, final stand and weight of 1,000 grains were not affected by simulated drifts, whereas ear weight and grain production were severely affected. The degree of visual injuries evaluated through percentage of plants injured by drift at 7, 14 and 21 days after herbicide application showed significant differences. The major damages were observed with the greater dosage of simulated drift. Weight of 1,000 grains was not affected, whereas ears and grain production were severely affected.

Root-Zone Glyphosate Exposure Adversely Affects Two Ditch Species  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate, one of the most applied herbicides globally, has been extensively studied for its effects on non-target organisms. In the field, following precipitation, glyphosate runs off into agricultural ditches where it infiltrates into the soil and thus may encounter the roots of vegetation. These edge-of-field ditches share many characteristics with wetlands, including the ability to reduce loads of anthropogenic chemicals through uptake, transformation, and retention. Different species within the ditches may have a differential sensitivity to exposure of the root zone to glyphosate, contributing to patterns of abundance of ruderal species. The present laboratory experiment investigated whether two species commonly found in agricultural ditches in southcentral United States were affected by root zone glyphosate in a dose-dependent manner, with the objective of identifying a sublethal concentration threshold. The root zone of individuals of Polygonum hydropiperoides and Panicum hemitomon were exposed to four concentrations of glyphosate. Leaf chlorophyll content was measured, and the ratio of aboveground biomass to belowground biomass and survival were quantified. The findings from this study showed that root zone glyphosate exposure negatively affected both species including dose-dependent reductions in chlorophyll content. P. hydropiperdoides showed the greatest negative response, with decreased belowground biomass allocation and total mortality at the highest concentrations tested.

The 2,4-D choline/glyphosate DMA formulation has reduced drift and volatility compared to the amine or ester formulation of 2,4-D and therefore is advantageous compared to a tank mix of 2,4-D amine or ester with glyphosate. The objective of this research was to compare the control of glyphosate susceptible and glyphosate resistant Canada fleabane with 2,4-D choline/glyphosate DMA with 2,4-D am...

Reduced sensitivity RDX obtained from bachmann RDX  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

In recent years much interest has been generated in a quality of reduced sensitivity RDX (RS-RDX), like I-RDX {sup registered} which, when incorporated in cast cure and even pressable plastic bonded explosives (PBX compositions), can confer reduced shock sensitivity as measured through gap test. At crystal level, lot of work has been done to try to determine which property or properties may explain the behaviour of the corresponding cast PBX composition. But up to now, and despite an international inter-laboratory comparison (Round Robin) of seven lots of RDX from five different manufacturers conducted from 2003 to 2005, even if some techniques lead to interesting results, there is no dedicated specification to apply to RS-RDX. This quality (I-RDX {sup registered}) has proved to retain its low sensitivity even after ageing, which does not seem to be the case for standard RDX produced by the Bachmann process (when re-crystallized under I-RDX conditions in order to obtain RS-RDX). It has been shown that the higher sensitivity of RDX produced by the Bachmann process, or the evolution of sensitivity after ageing of RS-RDX produced from Bachmann RDX may be linked to the presence of octogen (HMX) during the crystallization process. In order to check such hypothesis, low HMX content RDX produced by the Bachmann process has been prepared and evaluated in cast PBX composition (PBX N 109). Results of the characterization of such quality of RDX and its evaluation in cast PBX composition as well as ageing behaviour are presented and discussed; there are indications that removal of HMX from Bachmann RDX may lead to RS-RDX, which retains its RS character even after ageing.

Acute stress selectively reduces reward sensitivity  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Stress may promote the onset of psychopathology by disrupting reward processing. However, the extent to which stress impairs reward processing, rather than incentive processing more generally, is unclear. To evaluate the specificity of stress-induced reward processing disruption, 100 psychiatrically healthy females were administered a probabilistic stimulus selection task enabling comparison of sensitivity to reward-driven (Go and punishment-driven (NoGo learning under either ‘no stress’ or ‘stress’ (threat-of-shock conditions. Cortisol samples and self-report measures were collected. Contrary to hypotheses, the groups did not differ significantly in task performance or cortisol reactivity. However, further analyses focusing only on individuals under ‘stress’ who were high responders with regard to both cortisol reactivity and self-reported negative affect revealed reduced reward sensitivity relative to individuals tested in the ‘no stress’ condition; importantly, these deficits were reward-specific. Overall, findings provide preliminary evidence that stress-reactive individuals show diminished sensitivity to reward but not punishment under stress. While such results highlight the possibility that stress-induced anhedonia might be an important mechanism linking stress to affective disorders, future studies are necessary to confirm this conjecture.

Aminomethylphosphonic acid accumulation in plant species treated with glyphosate.  

Science.gov (United States)

Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) is the most frequently detected metabolite of glyphosate in plants. The objective of this study was to determine if there is any correlation of metabolism of glyphosate to AMPA in different plant species and their natural level of resistance to glyphosate. Greenhouse studies were conducted to determine the glyphosate I 50 values (rate required to cause a 50% reduction in plant growth) and to quantify AMPA and shikimate concentrations in selected leguminous and nonleguminous species treated with glyphosate at respective I 50 rates. Coffee senna [ Cassia occidentalis (L.) Link] was the most sensitive ( I 50 = 75 g/ha) and hemp sesbania [ Sesbania herbacea (P.Mill.) McVaugh] was the most resistant ( I 50 = 456 g/ha) to glyphosate. Hemp sesbania was 6-fold and Illinois bundleflower [ Desmanthus illinoensis (Michx.) MacM. ex B.L.Robins. & Fern.] was 4-fold more resistant to glyphosate than coffee senna. Glyphosate was present in all plant species, and its concentration ranged from 0.308 to 38.7 microg/g of tissue. AMPA was present in all leguminous species studied except hemp sesbania. AMPA concentration ranged from 0.119 to 4.77 microg/g of tissue. Shikimate was present in all plant species treated with glyphosate, and levels ranged from 0.053 to 16.5 mg/g of tissue. Non-glyphosate-resistant (non-GR) soybean accumulated much higher shikimate than glyphosate-resistant (GR) soybean. Although some leguminous species were found to be more resistant to glyphosate than others, and there was considerable variation between species in the glyphosate to AMPA levels found, metabolism of glyphosate to AMPA did not appear to be a common factor in explaining natural resistance levels.

Glyphosate effects on the gene expression of the apical bud in soybean (Glycine max).  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is a broad spectrum, non-selective herbicide which has been widely used for weed control. Much work has focused on elucidating the high accumulation of glyphosate in shoot apical bud (shoot apex). However, to date little is known about the molecular mechanisms of the sensitivity of shoot apical bud to glyphosate. Global gene expression profiling of the soybean apical bud response to glyphosate treatment was performed in this study. The results revealed that the glyphosate inhibited tryptophan biosynthesis of the shikimic acid pathway in the soybean apical bud, which was the target site of glyphosate. Glyphosate inhibited the expression of most of the target herbicide site genes. The promoter sequence analysis of key target genes revealed that light responsive elements were important regulators in glyphosate induction. These results will facilitate further studies of cloning genes and molecular mechanisms of glyphosate on soybean shoot apical bud. PMID:23845904

Hormesis with glyphosate depends on coffee growth stage  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Weed management systems in almost all Brazilian coffee plantations allow herbicide spray to drift on crop plants. In order to evaluate if there is any effect of the most commonly used herbicide in coffee production, glyphosate, on coffee plants, a range of glyphosate doses were applied directly on coffee plants at two distinct plant growth stages. Although growth of both young and old plants was reduced at higher glyphosate doses, low doses caused no effects on growth characteri...

Reduced taste sensitivity in congenital blindness  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

Sight is undoubtedly not only important for food identification and selection but also for the modulation of gustatory sensitivity. We can, therefore, assume that taste sensitivity and eating habits are affected by visual deprivation from birth. We measured taste detection and identification thresholds of the 5 basic tastants in 13 congenitally blind and 13 sighted control subjects. Participants also answered several eating habits questionnaires, including the Food Neophobia Scale, the Food Variety Seeking Tendency Scale, the Intuitive Eating Scale, and the Body Awareness Questionnaire. Our behavioral results showed that compared with the normal sighted, blind subjects have increased thresholds for taste detection and taste identification. This finding is at odds with the superior performance of congenitally blind subjects in several tactile, auditory and olfactory tasks. Our psychometric data further indicate that blind subjects more strongly rely on internal hunger and satiety cues, instead of external contextual or emotional cues, to decide when and what to eat. We suggest that the lower taste sensitivity observed in congenitally blind individuals is due to various blindness-related obstacles when shopping for food, cooking and eating out, all of which contribute to underexpose the gustatory system to a larger variety of taste stimuli.

Glyphosate persistence in seawater.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is one of the most widely applied herbicides globally but its persistence in seawater has not been reported. Here we quantify the biodegradation of glyphosate using standard "simulation" flask tests with native bacterial populations and coastal seawater from the Great Barrier Reef. The half-life for glyphosate at 25 °C in low-light was 47 days, extending to 267 days in the dark at 25 °C and 315 days in the dark at 31 °C, which is the longest persistence reported for this herbicide. AMPA, the microbial transformation product of glyphosate, was detected under all conditions, confirming that degradation was mediated by the native microbial community. This study demonstrates glyphosate is moderately persistent in the marine water under low light conditions and is highly persistent in the dark. Little degradation would be expected during flood plumes in the tropics, which could potentially deliver dissolved and sediment-bound glyphosate far from shore. PMID:24467857

Glyphosate in northern ecosystems.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is the main nonselective, systemic herbicide used against a wide range of weeds. Its worldwide use has expanded because of extensive use of certain agricultural practices such as no-till cropping, and widespread application of glyphosate-resistant genetically modified crops. Glyphosate has a reputation of being nontoxic to animals and rapidly inactivated in soils. However, recent evidence has cast doubts on its safety. Glyphosate may be retained and transported in soils, and there may be cascading effects on nontarget organisms. These processes may be especially detrimental in northern ecosystems because they are characterized by long biologically inactive winters and short growing seasons. In this opinion article, we discuss the potential ecological, environmental and agricultural risks of intensive glyphosate use in boreal regions. PMID:22677798

Exposure assessment to glyphosate of two species of annelids.  

Science.gov (United States)

Adult mortality, biomass, fecundity and viability of cocoons were studied in Eisenia fetida and Octolasion tyrtaeum, in response to glyphosate exposure in soil. Exposure tests were carried out following USEPA procedure, with five concentrations of glyphosate in soil and a control. O. tyrtaeum was more sensitive to the highest concentration of glyphosate (50,000 mg kg(-1)), with 100 % mortality by day 7 of exposure, compared with 71 % for E. fetida. Although biomass of O. tyrtaeum was significantly different between the control and 5,000 mg kg(-1) dose at day 14, E. fetida was not affected at that concentration, and only showed a significant weight loss after 7 days of exposure to 50,000 mg kg(-1). Adverse effects upon adult fecundity and cocoon viability were observed at glyphosate concentrations of 5,000 mg kg(-1) and above. Adverse effects were observed at concentrations that greatly exceeded the recommended field application rates of glyphosate. PMID:24902650

Assim, os objetivos deste trabalho foram caracterizar morfologicamente as folhas de Conyza sumatrensis e avaliar o controle com herbicidas aplica [...] dos em biótipos dessa planta daninha em três estádios de desenvolvimento. Foram realizados dois estudos, com experimentos em casa de vegetação, em delineamento inteiramente casualizado com quatro repetições. No primeiro estudo, os biótipos de buva foram coletados e identificados; já no segundo estudo avaliou-se a resposta de biótipos aos herbicidas, doses e estádios de desenvolvimento. As doses de herbicidas foram: 0,0; 6,25; 12,5; 25; 50; 100; 200; e 400, representadas em porcentagem da dose de registro dos herbicidas chlorimuron-ethyl (20 g ha-1) e glyphosate (720 g e.a. ha-1), aplicadas de modo isolado ou associadas em três estádios de desenvolvimento dos quatro biótipos (2, 5, 17 e 20) de Conyza sumatrensis (altura de 0,5-1 cm e 3-4 folhas; altura 1-2 cm e 6-7 folhas; e altura de 10-12 cm e 12-14 folhas). As variáveis analisadas foram controle, fitomassa seca da parte aérea e as densidades tricomática e estomática da superfície foliar dos biótipos em diferentes estádios de desenvolvimento. Os resultados demonstram que os estádios de desenvolvimento alteram a eficácia dos herbicidas, e aplicações em estádios avançados de desenvolvimento diminuem a eficácia de controle. A exceção foi o biótipo 5 de Conyza sumatrensis, que demonstrou resistência ao glyphosate, independentemente do estádio de desenvolvimento no momento da aplicação do herbicida. Houve variação no número de tricomas entre os biótipos em todos os estádios de desenvolvimento, e o número de estômatos diminuiu com o desenvolvimento dos biótipos. Abstract in english In the states of Rio Grande do Sul and Paraná, there are frequent reports of failure to control Conyza sumatrensis with chlorimuron-ethyl in soybean crops. Thus, the objectives of this study were to characterize Conyza sumatrensis leaves morphologically and evaluate herbicide control in biotypes of [...] this weed at three stages. Two studies were conducted, with experiments in a greenhouse in a completely randomized design with four replications. In the first study, horseweed biotypes were collected and identified, and the second study evaluated the responses of herbicide rates and development stages. The herbicide rates were: 0.0, 6.25, 12.5, 25, 50, 100, 200 and 400, represented as a percentage of the dose registry of herbicides chlorimuron­ethyl (20 g ha-1) and glyphosate (720 g e.a. ha-1) applied in isolation or associated at three developmental stages of four Conyza sumatrensis (2, 5, 17 and 20) biotypes (height = 0.5-1 cm and 3-4 leaves, height = 1-2 cm and 6-7 leaves, height = 10-12 cm, 12-14 leaves). The variables analyzed were control, shoot dry weight and trichome and stomatal densities biotypes of the leaf surface at different stages of development. The results obtained demonstrate that the developmental stages affect the effectiveness of the herbicides, and applications at advanced stages of development decrease the effectiveness of control. The exception was biotype 5 of Conyza sumatrensis, which shows resistance to glyphosate, regardless of stage of development at the time of herbicide application. There was variation in the number of trichomes among biotypes at all stages of development, and the number of stomata decreased with the development of biotypes.

Glyphosate-Resistant Goosegrass from Mississippi  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A suspected glyphosate-resistant goosegrass [Eleusine indica (L. Gaertn.] population, found in Washington County, Mississippi, was studied to determine the level of resistance and whether the resistance was due to a point mutation, as was previously identified in a Malaysian population. Whole plant dose response assays indicated a two- to four-fold increase in resistance to glyphosate. Leaf disc bioassays based on a glyphosate-dependent increase in shikimate levels indicated a five- to eight-fold increase in resistance. Sequence comparisons of messenger RNA for epsps, the gene encoding the enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase, from resistant and sensitive goosegrass, revealed a cytosine to thymine nucleotide change at position 319 in the resistant accessions. This single nucleotide polymorphism causes a proline to serine amino acid substitution at position 106 in 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase. A real-time polymerase chain reaction assay using DNA probes specific for the nucleotide change at position 319 was developed to detect this polymorphism. Goosegrass from 42 locations were screened, and the results indicated that glyphosate-resistant goosegrass remained localized to where it was discovered. Pendimethalin, s-metolachlor, clethodim, paraquat and fluazifop controlled resistant goosegrass 93% to 100%, indicating that several control options for glyphosate-resistant goosegrass are available.

Effects of additives on glyphosate activity in purple nutsedge  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Effects of additives on 14 C-glyphosate penetration into purple nutsedge leaves were examined in the laboratory and efficacy of glyphosate for purple nutsedge control was studied in the greenhouse and field. The addition of (NH4)2 SO4 at 1.0% (v/v) + diesel oil at 1,0% (v/v) + Tendal at 1.0% (v/v) increased 14C-glyphosate penetration into nutsedge leaves more than the addition of either one alone. (NH4)2SO4 at 1.0% + diesel oil at 1.0% + Tendal at 0.12 or 0.25% increased the phytotoxicity of glyphosate at 0.5 and 0.75 kg, a.e./ha on nutsedge plants in the greenhouse but not in the field. Additives did not enhance glyphosate activity by reducing the number of nutsedae tubers. (author)

Effects of glyphosate on the mineral content of glyphosate-resistant soybeans (Glycine max).  

Science.gov (United States)

There are conflicting claims as to whether treatment with glyphosate adversely affects mineral nutrition of glyphosate-resistant (GR) crops. Those who have made claims of adverse effects have argued links between reduced Mn and diseases in these crops. This article describes experiments designed to determine the effects of a recommended rate (0.86 kg ha(-1)) of glyphosate applied once or twice on the mineral content of young and mature leaves, as well as in seeds produced by GR soybeans (Glycine max) in both the greenhouse and field using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). In the greenhouse, there were no effects of either one application (at 3 weeks after planting, WAP) or two applications (at 3 and 6 WAP) of glyphosate on Ca, Mg, Mn, Zn, Fe, Cu, Sr, Ba, Al, Cd, Cr, Co, or Ni content of young or old leaves sampled at 6, 9, and 12 WAP and in harvested seed. Se concentrations were too low for accurate detection in leaves, but there was also no effect of glyphosate applications on Se in the seeds. In the field study, there were no effects of two applications (at 3 and 6 WAP) of glyphosate on Ca, Mg, Mn, Zn, Fe, Cu, Sr, Ba, Al, Cd, Cr, Co, or Ni content of young or old leaves at either 9 or 12 WAP. There was also no effect on Se in the seeds. There was no difference in yield between control and glyphosate-treated GR soybeans in the field. The results indicate that glyphosate does not influence mineral nutrition of GR soybean at recommended rates for weed management in the field. Furthermore, the field studies confirm the results of greenhouse studies. PMID:22708739

Foliar nickel application alleviates detrimental effects of glyphosate drift on yield and seed quality of wheat.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate drift to nontarget crops causes growth aberrations and yield losses. This herbicide can also interact with divalent nutrients and form poorly soluble complexes. The possibility of using nickel (Ni), an essential divalent metal, for alleviating glyphosate drift damage to wheat was investigated in this study. Effects of Ni applications on various growth parameters, seed yield, and quality of durum wheat ( Triticum durum ) treated with sublethal glyphosate at different developmental stages were investigated in greenhouse experiments. Nickel concentrations of various plant parts and glyphosate-induced shikimate accumulation were measured. Foliar but not soil Ni applications significantly reduced glyphosate injuries including yield losses, stunting, and excessive tillering. Both shoot and grain Ni concentrations were enhanced by foliar Ni treatment. Seed germination and seedling vigor were impaired by glyphosate and improved by foliar Ni application to parental plants. Foliar Ni application appears to have a great potential to ameliorate glyphosate drift injury to wheat. PMID:23882996

Translocação do glyphosate em biótipos de azevém (Lolium multiflorum Glyphosate translocation in Italian ryegrass biotypes (Lolium multiflorum  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Foram avaliadas neste trabalho a absorção foliar e a translocação do glyphosate por biótipos de azevém (Lolium multiflorum sensíveis e resistentes a esse herbicida. Para isso, aplicou-se 14C-glyphosate utilizando-se uma microsseringa de precisão, adicionando-se 10 µL da calda sobre a face adaxial da primeira folha com lígula totalmente visível, quando as plantas de azevém se apresentavam com três perfilhos. A quantidade de glyphosate absorvido e translocado foi avaliada em intervalos de tempo (2, 4, 8, 16, 32 e 64 horas ap??s a aplicação, por meio da medição da radiação emitida pelo 14C-glyphosate, em espectrômetro de cintilação líquida. Foram analisadas a parte aérea e as raízes, bem como a folha onde foi feita a aplicação e a solução de lavagem desta folha. A velocidade de absorção do glyphosate foi semelhante em ambos os biótipos de azevém, observando-se mais de 50% de absorção desse herbicida nas primeiras oito horas após a aplicação. Maior retenção de glyphosate foi observada na folha tratada do biótipo resistente: 81,64% do total de glyphosate absorvido até as 64 horas. No biótipo sensível esse valor foi de 55% no mesmo período. No restante da parte aérea e nas raízes, a maior quantidade do glyphosate absorvido foi encontrada no biótipo sensível, mostrando sua maior capacidade de translocação. Após 64 horas da aplicação do glyphosate, apenas 6%, em média, do glyphosate se encontrava nas plantas, indicando que a maior parte do produto pode ter sido exsudada. Conclui-se que a sensibilidade do azevém ao glyphosate pode ser atribuída à maior capacidade de translocação desse herbicida pelo biótipo sensível.This work evaluated foliar absorption and glyphosate translocation in Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum susceptible and resistant biotypes, 14C-glyphosate was applied by using a precision micro syringe, and adding 10 µL of solution on the adaxial side of the first leaf with ligule totally visible, when Italian ryegrass plants showed 3 tillers. The quantity of glyphosate absorbed and translocated was evaluated through a liquid scintilation spectrometer by measuring radiation emitted by 14C-glyphosate at 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 hours after application. The roots and aerial part were analyzed as well as the leaf where application was performed and the solution used to wash the leaf. Glyphosate absorption speed was similar in both Italian ryegrass biotypes, with over 50% of herbicide absorption in the first 8 hours after application. Up to 64 hours, higher retention (81.64%of glyphosate was observed in the resistant biotype, while only 55% was retained in the susceptible biotype. In the remaining aerial part and roots, a higher amount of glyphosate was absorbed by the susceptible biotype, indicating higher capacity of its translocation. After 64 hours of application, only 6%, of glyphosate was found in the plants, on average indicating that most of the product could be exuded. It could be concluded that Italian ryegrass sensitivity to glyphosate can be attributed to higher translocation capacity of this herbicide by susceptible biotypes.

ACUTE TESTOSTERONE DEPRIVATION REDUCES INSULIN SENSITIVITY IN MEN  

Science.gov (United States)

Objective In men with prostate cancer, androgen deprivation reduces insulin sensitivity; however, the relative roles played by testosterone and estradiol are unknown. To investigate the respective effects of these hormones on insulin sensitivity in men, we employed a model of experimental hypogonadism with or without hormone replacement. Design Placebo-controlled, randomized trial. Participants 22 healthy male volunteers, 18–55 years old. Methods Following screening, subjects received the gonadotropin releasing hormone antagonist acyline plus one of the following for 28 days: Group 1, placebo transdermal gel and placebo pills; Group 2, transdermal testosterone gel 10g/day plus placebo pills; Group 3, transdermal testosterone gel 10 g/day plus the aromatase inhibitor anastrozole 1 mg/day to normalize testosterone while selectively reducing serum estradiol. Fasting insulin, glucose, adipokines and hormones were measured bi-weekly. Results With acyline administration, serum testosterone was reduced by >90% in all subjects in Group 1. In these men, mean fasting insulin concentrations were significantly increased compared with baseline (p=0.02) at 28 days, despite stable body weight and no changes in fasting glucose concentrations. Decreased insulin sensitivity also was apparent in the insulin sensitivity indices HOMA-IR (p=0.03) and QUICKI (p=0.04). In contrast, in Groups 2 and 3, testosterone concentrations remained in the physiologic range, despite significant reduction in mean estradiol in Group 3. In these groups, no significant changes in insulin sensitivity were observed. Conclusions Acute testosterone withdrawal reduces insulin sensitivity in men independent of changes in body weight, whereas estradiol withdrawal has no effect. Testosterone appears to maintain insulin sensitivity in normal men. PMID:21797916

Impact of glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides on the freshwater environment.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine] is a broad spectrum, post emergent herbicide and is among the most widely used agricultural chemicals globally. Initially developed to control the growth of weed species in agriculture, this herbicide also plays an important role in both modern silviculture and domestic weed control. The creation of glyphosate tolerant crop species has significantly increased the demand and use of this herbicide and has also increased the risk of exposure to non-target species. Commercially available glyphosate-based herbicides are comprised of multiple, often proprietary, constituents, each with a unique level of toxicity. Surfactants used to increase herbicide efficacy have been identified in some studies as the chemicals responsible for toxicity of glyphosate-based herbicides to non-target species, yet they are often difficult to chemically identify. Most glyphosate-based herbicides are not approved for use in the aquatic environment; however, measurable quantities of the active ingredient and surfactants are detected in surface waters, giving them the potential to alter the physiology of aquatic organisms. Acute toxicity is highly species dependant across all taxa, with toxicity depending on the timing, magnitude, and route of exposure. The toxicity of glyphosate to amphibians has been a major focus of recent research, which has suggested increased sensitivity compared with other vertebrates due to their life history traits and reliance on both the aquatic and terrestrial environments. This review is designed to update previous reviews of glyphosate-based herbicide toxicity, with a focus on recent studies of the aquatic toxicity of this class of chemicals. PMID:24615870

Inhibition effect of glyphosate on the acute and subacute toxicity of cadmium to earthworm Eisenia fetida.  

Science.gov (United States)

The acute and subacute toxicities of cadmium (Cd) to earthworm Eisenia fetida in the presence and absence of glyphosate were studied. Although Cd is highly toxic to E. fetida, the presence of glyphosate markedly reduced the acute toxicity of Cd to earthworm; both the mortality rate of the earthworms and the accumulation of Cd decreased with the increase of the glyphosate/Cd molar ratio. The subcellular distribution of Cd in E. fetida tissues showed that internal Cd was dominant in the intact cells fraction and the heat-stable proteins fraction. The presence of glyphosate reduced the concentration of Cd in all fractions, especially the intact cells. During a longer period of exposure, the weight loss of earthworm and the total Cd absorption was alleviated by glyphosate. Thus, the herbicide glyphosate can reduce the toxicity and bioavailability of Cd in the soil ecosystems at both short- and long-term exposures. PMID:25043609

A red and far-red light receptor mutation confers resistance to the herbicide glyphosate  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Glyphosate is a widely applied broad-spectrum systemic herbicide that inhibits competitively the penultimate enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) from the shikimate pathway, thereby causing deleterious effects. A glyphosate-resistant Arabidopsis mutant (gre1) was isolated and genetic analyses indicated that a dysfunctional red (R) and far-red (FR) light receptor, phytochrome B (phyB), caused this phenotype. This finding is consistent with increased glyphosate sensitivity...

Functional characterization of aroA from Rhizobium leguminosarum with significant glyphosate tolerance in transgenic Arabidopsis.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is the active component of the top-selling herbicide, the phytotoxicity of which is due to its inhibition of the shikimic acid pathway. 5-Enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) is a key enzyme in the shikimic acid pathway. Glyphosate tolerance in plants can be achieved by the expression of a glyphosate-insensitive aroA gene (EPSPS). In this study, we used a PCR-based two-step DNA synthesis method to synthesize a new aroA gene (aroAR. leguminosarum) from Rhizobium leguminosarum. In vitro glyphosate sensitivity assays showed that aroAR. leguminosarum is glyphosate tolerant. The new gene was then expressed in E. coli and key kinetic values of the purified enzyme were determined. Furthermore, we transformed the aroA gene into Arabidopsis thaliana by the floral dip method. Transgenic Arabidopsis with the aroAR. leguminosarum gene was obtained to prove its potential use in developing glyphosate-resistant crops. PMID:24836188

Glyphosate, one of the most applied herbicides globally, has been extensively studied for its effects on non-target organisms. In the field, following precipitation, glyphosate runs off into agricultural ditches where it infiltrates into the soil and thus may encounter the roots of vegetation. These edge-of-field ditches share many characteristics with wetlands, including the ability to reduce loads of anthropogenic chemicals through uptake, transformation, and retention.

Control of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed in soybean with preplant herbicides  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Giant ragweed was the first glyphosate resistant weed identified in Canada. It is a very competetive weed in row crop production and has been found to drastically reduce yields of soybean; therefore, control of this competitive weed is essential. The objective of this study was to determine effective control options for glyphosate resistant giant ragweed in soybean with herbicides applied preplant. Eighteen herbicide combinations were evaluated in field studies conducted in 2011 and 2012 at five locations with confirmed glyphosate resistant giant ragweed. Glyphosate plus 2,4-D ester or amitrole provided the best control of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed 4 WAA. Glyphosate plus 2,4-D ester provided 98 to 99% control and was equivalent to the weed free check at all locations. Glyphosate plus amitrole provided 90% to 93% control and was equivalent to the weed free check at 4 of 5 locations. Herbicides providing residual activity provided variable control across all locations. Of the herbicides with residual activity evaluated, glyphosate plus linuron provided the best control of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed; however, control was inconsistent across locations and years. Glyphosate plus linuron provided 23% to 99% controland was equal to the weed free check at one location 8 WAA.

Spray droplet size, drift potential, and risks to nontarget organisms from aerially applied glyphosate for coca control in Colombia.  

Science.gov (United States)

A wind tunnel atomization study was conducted to measure the emission droplet size spectra for water and Glyphos (a glyphosate formulation sold in Colombia) + Cosmo-flux sprays for aerial application to control coca and poppy crops in Colombia. The droplet size spectra were measured in a wind tunnel for an Accu-Flo nozzle (with 16 size 0.085 [2.16 mm] orifices), under appropriate simulated aircraft speeds (up to 333 km/h), using a laser diffraction instrument covering a dynamic size range for droplets of 0.5 to 3,500 microm. The spray drift potential of the glyphosate was modeled using the AGDISP spray application and drift model, using input parameters representative of those occurring in Colombia for typical aerial application operations. The droplet size spectra for tank mixes containing glyphosate and Cosmo-Flux were considerably finer than water and became finer with higher aircraft speeds. The tank mix with 44% glyphosate had a D(v0.5) of 128 microm, while the value at the 4.9% glyphosate rate was 140 microm. These are classified as very fine to fine sprays. Despite being relatively fine, modeling showed that the droplets would not evaporate as rapidly as most similarly sized agricultural sprays because the nonvolatile proportion of the tank mix (active and inert adjuvant ingredients) was large. Thus, longer range drift is small and most drift that does occur will deposit relatively close to the application area. Drift will only occur downwind and, with winds of velocity less than the modeled maximum of 9 km/h, the drift distance would be substantially reduced. Spray drift potential might be additionally reduced through various practices such as the selection of nozzles, tank mix adjuvants, aircraft speeds, and spray pressures that would produce coarser sprays. Species sensitivity distributions to glyphosate were constructed for plants and amphibians. Based on modeled drift and 5th centile concentrations, appropriate no-spray buffer zones (distance from the end of the spray boom as recorded electronically +/-5%) for protection of sensitive plants were 50-120 m for coca spray scenarios and considerably lower for poppy spray scenarios. The equivalent buffer zone for amphibia was 5 m. The low toxicity of glyphosate to humans suggests that these aerial applications are not a concern for human health. PMID:19672760

Epoxy resin monomers with reduced skin sensitizing potency.  

Science.gov (United States)

Epoxy resin monomers (ERMs), especially diglycidyl ethers of bisphenol A and F (DGEBA and DGEBF), are extensively used as building blocks for thermosetting polymers. However, they are known to commonly cause skin allergy. This research describes a number of alternative ERMs, designed with the aim of reducing the skin sensitizing potency while maintaining the ability to form thermosetting polymers. The compounds were designed, synthesized, and assessed for sensitizing potency using the in vivo murine local lymph node assay (LLNA). All six epoxy resin monomers had decreased sensitizing potencies compared to those of DGEBA and DGEBF. With respect to the LLNA EC3 value, the best of the alternative monomers had a value approximately 2.5 times higher than those of DGEBA and DGEBF. The diepoxides were reacted with triethylenetetramine, and the polymers formed were tested for technical applicability using thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry. Four out of the six alternative ERMs gave polymers with a thermal stability comparable to that obtained with DGEBA and DGEBF. The use of improved epoxy resin monomers with less skin sensitizing effects is a direct way to tackle the problem of contact allergy to epoxy resin systems, particularly in occupational settings, resulting in a reduction in the incidence of allergic contact dermatitis.

Path-sensitive analysis for reducing rollback overheads  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

A mechanism is provided for path-sensitive analysis for reducing rollback overheads. The mechanism receives, in a compiler, program code to be compiled to form compiled code. The mechanism divides the code into basic blocks. The mechanism then determines a restore register set for each of the one or more basic blocks to form one or more restore register sets. The mechanism then stores the one or more register sets such that responsive to a rollback during execution of the compiled code. A rollback routine identifies a restore register set from the one or more restore register sets and restores registers identified in the identified restore register set.

Glyphosate no controle de biótipos de azevém e impacto na microbiota do solo Glyphosate application for italian ryegrass biotype control and impact on soil microbiota  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Avaliou-se neste trabalho a resistência de azevém (L. multiflorum ao glyphosate e o impacto do controle desses biótipos sobre a respiração e biomassa microbiana do solo. Foram conduzidos dois ensaios: no primeiro foram avaliadas a intoxicação e a massa seca das plantas de biótipos de três populações de azevém: população 1 (reconhecidamente resistente, população 2 (resistência intermediária, e população 3 (sensível ao glyphosate, submetidas a diferentes doses de glyphosate (200, 400, 800, 1.600 e 3.200 g ha-1. No segundo ensaio foram avaliados a massa seca da parte aérea, a altura de plantas, o número de folhas de azevém e a respiração e massa microbiana do solo cultivado com os biótipos resistente e sensível, com e sem aplicação de glyphosate (480 g ha-1. Aos 14 DAT, observou-se morte do biótipo sensível quando tratado com doses a partir de 200 g ha-1 de glyphosate. Nos biótipos resistentes e com nível intermediário de resistência, a toxicidade do glyphosate às plantas de azevém foi de 85% na maior dose avaliada. O biótipo resistente apresentou maior produção de massa seca da parte aérea aos 42 DAT e na rebrota, aos 72 DAT, quando comparado ao biótipo intermediário. O biótipo sensível apresentou maior altura de plantas, número de folhas e massa seca da parte aérea, em comparação ao resistente, quando não tratados com o glyphosate. Não foi observada diferença na atividade microbiana do solo entre os tratamentos avaliados.This study aimed to evaluate the resistance Italian ryegrass (L. multiflorum against glyphosate and the impact of the control of these biotypes on soil respiration and microbial biomass. Two essays were conducted: the first evaluated intoxication and dry mass of the plants of biotypes of three Italian ryegrass population (population 1 - resistant; population 2 - intermediary resistance; and population 3 - sensitive to glyphosate submitted to different glyphosate rates. The second assay evaluated dry matter of the aereal part, plant height, number of leaves and respiration and microbial mass of the soil cultivated with the resistant and sensitive biotypes, with and without glyphosate application (480 g ha-1. At 14 DAA, death of the susceptible biotype was observed, when treated with rates starting from 200 g ha-1 of glyphosate. The resistant ad intermediate resistant biotypes showed glyphosate phytotoxicity of 85% at the highest rate evaluated. The resistant biotype presented the highest dry matter production of the aerial part at 42 DAA and during sprouting, at 72 DAA, compared to the intermediary biotype. The sensitive biotype presented higher plant height, number of leaves and dry mass of the aerial part, to the resistant biotype, without glyphosate. No difference was observed in the microbial activity in the soil among the treatments.

Green areas around homes reduce atopic sensitization in children  

Science.gov (United States)

Background Western lifestyle is associated with high prevalence of allergy, asthma and other chronic inflammatory disorders. To explain this association, we tested the ‘biodiversity hypothesis’, which posits that reduced contact of children with environmental biodiversity, including environmental microbiota in natural habitats, has adverse consequences on the assembly of human commensal microbiota and its contribution to immune tolerance. Methods We analysed four study cohorts from Finland and Estonia (n = 1044) comprising children and adolescents aged 0.5–20 years. The prevalence of atopic sensitization was assessed by measuring serum IgE specific to inhalant allergens. We calculated the proportion of five land-use types – forest, agricultural land, built areas, wetlands and water bodies – in the landscape around the homes using the CORINE2006 classification. Results The cover of forest and agricultural land within 2–5 km from the home was inversely and significantly associated with atopic sensitization. This relationship was observed for children 6 years of age and older. Land-use pattern explained 20% of the variation in the relative abundance of Proteobacteria on the skin of healthy individuals, supporting the hypothesis of a strong environmental effect on the commensal microbiota. Conclusions The amount of green environment (forest and agricultural land) around homes was inversely associated with the risk of atopic sensitization in children. The results indicate that early-life exposure to green environments is especially important. The environmental effect may be mediated via the effect of environmental microbiota on the commensal microbiota influencing immunotolerance. PMID:25388016

Highly sensitive reduced graphene oxide microelectrode array sensor.  

Science.gov (United States)

Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) has been fabricated into a microelectrode array (MEA) using a modified nanoimprint lithography (NIL) technique. Through a modified NIL process, the rGO MEA was fabricated by a self-alignment of conducting Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) and rGO layer without etching of the rGO layer. The rGO MEA consists of an array of 10?m circular disks and microelectrode signature has been found at a pitch spacing of 60?m. The rGO MEA shows a sensitivity of 1.91nA?m(-1) to dopamine (DA) without the use of mediators or functionalization of the reduced graphene oxide (rGO) active layer. The performance of rGO MEA remains stable when tested under highly resistive media using a continuous flow set up, as well as when subjecting it to mechanical stress. The successful demonstration of NIL for fabricating rGO microelectrodes on flexible substrate presents a route for the large scale fabrication of highly sensitive, flexible and thin biosensing platform.

Effect of glyphosate toxicity on growth, pigment and alkaline phosphatase activity in cyanobacterium Anabaena doliolum: a role of inorganic phosphate in glyphosate tolerance.  

Science.gov (United States)

Response of glyphosate toxicity on photoautotrophic cyanobacterium A. doliolum and its mutant strain was investigated. Chlorophyll a content of both the wild type and mutant strain in the presence of glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl glycine) initially showed an increasing trend when supplemented with Pi and a declining tendency under the Pi-starved condition. The results suggested that both the wild type and mutant strains were more sensitive to glyphosate in the absence of phosphate. Alkaline phosphatase activity of wild type strain in the presence of Pi, enhanced in response to addition of glyphosate (40 microg/ml), but the activity remained unaltered by addition of glyphosate in the Pi-starved cells, whereas the alkaline phosphatase activity in the mutant strain under both Pi-starved as well as unstarved conditions was stimulated (approximately 5.4 and 3.1-fold, respectively) by addition of glyphosate. The results on alkaline phosphatase activity indicated a glyphosate-induced depletion in the phosphate content of the cells, particularly in the mutant strain, as evident from the stimulated activity of alkaline phosphatase. It is suggested that enzyme activity in the Pi-starved wild type cells may not be influenced any further by glyphosate, as cellular phosphate reserve might not be available for further depletion.

Selection and characterization of glyphosate tolerance in birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

If birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) was tolerant to glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine], Canada thistle [Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop.] and other dicot weeds could be selectively controlled in certified seed production fields. Glyphosate tolerance in birdsfoot trefoil was identified in plants from the cultivar Leo, plants regenerated from tolerant callus, and selfed progeny of plants regenerated from callus. Plants from the three sources were evaluated in field studies for tolerance to glyphosate at rates up to 1.6 kg ae/ha. Plants of Leo selected for tolerance exhibited a twofold range in the rate required to reduce shoot weight 50% (I50s from 0.6 to 1.2 kg/ha glyphosate). Plants regenerated from tolerant callus had tolerance up to 66% greater than plants regenerated from unselected callus. Transgressive segregation for glyphosate tolerance was observed in the selfed progeny of two regenerated plants that both had I50s of 0.7 kg/ha glyphosate. The selfed progeny ranged from highly tolerant (I50 of 1.5 kg/ha) to susceptible (I50 of 0.5 kg/ha). Spray retention, 14C-glyphosate absorption and translocation did not account for the differential tolerance of nine plants that were evaluated from the three sources. The specific activity of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate (EPSP) synthase ranged from 1.3 to 3.5 nmol/min sm-bullet mg among the nine plants and was positively correlated with glyphosate tolerance. ely correlated with glyphosate tolerance. Leo birdsfoot trefoil was found to have significant variation in glyphosate tolerance which made it possible to initiate a recurrent selection program to select for glyphosate tolerance in birdsfoot trefoil. Two cycles of selection for glyphosate tolerance were practiced in three birdsfoot trefoil populations, Leo, Norcen, and MU-81

A Preliminary Study of Soybean Genotype Responses to Glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The effect of four application rates of glyphosate (Roundup, 360 g a.i./l – 180; 360; 720 and 1440 g a.i./ha on the survival, dynamics of growth, and accumulation of fresh biomass in g per plant was studied on eight newly-developed Bulgarian lines, varieties and candidate varieties of soybean bred by different methods under greenhouse conditions. The objective of this study was to determine and compare the sensitivities of different soybean genotypes to glyphosate. The studied soybean genotypes showed different levelsof glyphosate sensitivity due to their genetic differences. Glyphosate rates of 180, 360, 720 and 1440 g a.i./ha, applied at the stage of three trifoliate leaves (V4 of soybean had effect on the survival of the studied genotypes and can be presented conditionally in the following order: H (40.6% < G (40.7% < D (51.3% < C (52.6% < F (58.9% < E (60.5% < B (62.0% < A (65.3%. The depression coefficients (B of the studied characteristics dependedmainly on soybean genotypes and the applied herbicide rates. The tested glyphosate rates showed a high (GI 26.5-51.6% to relatively low degree of toxicity (GI 16.0-18.7% in the studied soybean genotypes.

Impact of the invasive mussel Limnoperna fortunei on glyphosate concentration in water.  

Science.gov (United States)

The use of glyphosate has increased dramatically during the past years around the world. Microbial communities are altered when glyphosate reaches water bodies. The freshwater golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei is an invasive species that has rapidly dispersed since it was introduced in Argentina two decades ago. Mussels alter aquatic conditions through their filtrating activity by increasing water clarity and nutrient recycling. We aim to evaluate the potential capacity of the golden mussel to reduce glyphosate concentration in water, in laboratory conditions. Firstly, the evasive response of mussels to glyphosate (10, 20, and 40 mg l?¹) was evaluated and a toxicity test was carried out for these concentrations. A three-week experiment was then performed to assess glyphosate variation under mussel presence for two mussel sizes. Finally, mussels' role on glyphosate concentration was evaluated considering different mussel parts (living organisms and empty shells) through another three-week experiment. Laboratory experiments were performed in triplicate using 2-l microcosms. An initial glyphosate concentration between 16 and 19 mg l?¹ was used, and when mussels or valvae were added, 20 organisms per aquaria were used. Samples were obtained at days 0, 1, 2, 4, 8, 14, and 21. Glyphosate decreased by 40% under large mussel presence in both experiments, and was reduced by 25% in empty shell treatments. We believe that part of the herbicide that disappears from the water column is adsorbed in valvae surface, while another proportion is being mineralized by microbial communities in shells' biofilm. The mechanisms by which living mussels increase glyphosate dissipation would be degradation, possibly mediated by bacteria associated to mussel's metabolism. Glyphosate half-life depended on mussel and valvae presence and varied with mussel size. L. fortunei presence (either alive or as empty valvae) alters glyphosate concentration in water. We provide preliminary observations from laboratory experiments, with strong potential ecological consequences, about two stressors that could be acting jointly on the environment. PMID:22595085

Changes in constructed Brassica communities treated with glyphosate drift.  

Science.gov (United States)

We constructed a mixed-species community designed to simulate roadside and field edge plant communities and exposed it to glyphosate drift in order to test three hypotheses: (1) higher fitness in transgenic Brassica carrying the CP4 EPSPS transgene that confers resistance to glyphosate will result in significant changes in the plant community relative to control communities; (2) given repeated years of glyphosate drift selective pressure, the increased fitness of the transgenic Brassica with CP4 EPSPS will contribute to an increase in the proportion of transgenic progeny produced in plant communities; and (3) the increased fitness of Brassica carrying the CP4 EPSPS transgene will contribute to decreased levels of mycorrhizal infection and biomass in a host species (Trifolium incarnatum). Due to regulatory constraints that prevented the use of outdoor plots for our studies, in 2005 we established multispecies communities in five large cylindrical outdoor sunlit mesocosms (plastic greenhouses) designed for pollen confinement. Three of the community members were sexually compatible Brassica spp.: transgenic glyphosate-resistant canola (B. napus) cultivar (cv.) RaideRR, glyphosate-sensitive non-transgenic B. napus cv. Sponsor, and a weedy B. rapa (GRIN Accession 21735). Additional plant community members were the broadly distributed annual weeds Digitaria sanguinalis, Panicum capillare, and Lapsana communis. Once annually in 2006 and 2007, two mesocosms were sprayed with glyphosate at 10% of the field application rate to simulate glyphosate drift as a selective pressure. After two years, changes were observed in community composition, plant density, and biomass in both control and treatment mesocosms. In control mesocosms, the weed D. sanguinalis (crabgrass) began to dominate. In glyphosate drift-treated mesocosms, Brassica remained the dominant genus and the incidence of the CP4 EPSPS transgene increased in the community. Shoot biomass and mycorrhizal infection in Trifolium incarnatum planted in 2008 were significantly lower in mesocosms that had received glyphosate drift treatments. Our results suggest that, over time, glyphosate drift can contribute to persistence of Brassica that express the CP4 EPSPS transgene and that increased representation of Brassica (a non-mycorrhizal host) within plant communities may indirectly negatively impact beneficial ecosystem services associated with arbuscular mycorrhiza.

Glyphosate resistance: state of knowledge.  

Science.gov (United States)

Studies of mechanisms of resistance to glyphosate have increased current understanding of herbicide resistance mechanisms. Thus far, single-codon non-synonymous mutations of EPSPS (5-enolypyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase) have been rare and, relative to other herbicide mode of action target-site mutations, unconventionally weak in magnitude for resistance to glyphosate. However, it is possible that weeds will emerge with non-synonymous mutations of two codons of EPSPS to produce an enzyme endowing greater resistance to glyphosate. Today, target-gene duplication is a common glyphosate resistance mechanism and could become a fundamental process for developing any resistance trait. Based on competition and substrate selectivity studies in several species, rapid vacuole sequestration of glyphosate occurs via a transporter mechanism. Conversely, as the chloroplast requires transporters for uptake of important metabolites, transporters associated with the two plastid membranes may separately, or together, successfully block glyphosate delivery. A model based on finite glyphosate dose and limiting time required for chloroplast loading sets the stage for understanding how uniquely different mechanisms can contribute to overall glyphosate resistance.

Science.gov (United States)

Although glyphosate is the most used and studied herbicide in the world, the available information is not enough to fully understand its mode of action. The molecular site of action of glyphosate is the enzyme 5-enolpyruvlyshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS). It is the only known compound that ...

Crop response to glyphosate trimesium sulphosate  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Glyphosate may cause injury to non-target plants. The first detectable symptom after glyphosate treatment is the growth inhibition, followed by noticeable yellowing (chlorosis) of the treated tissue. Five to ten days after the treatment, the chlorosis turns into necrosis and the plants begin to die. Greenhouse research was conducted in 2007 to investigate the response of glyphosate resistant (GR) soybeans PAN 520 line and non-glyphosate resistant EGRET line of soybeans to glyphosate trimesium...

Uptake of Glyphosate by an Arthrobacter sp  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

The uptake of glyphosate (N-[phosphonomethyl]glycine) by an Arthrobacter sp. which can utilize this herbicide as its sole source of phosphorus was investigated. Orthophosphate suppressed the expression of the uptake system for glyphosate and also competed with glyphosate for uptake. The Km for glyphosate uptake was 125 ?M, and the Ki for orthophosphate was 24 ?M. Organophosphonates as well as organophosphates inhibited glyphosate uptake, but only organophosphates and orthophosphate suppress...

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese O objetivo da pesquisa foi avaliar o controle de plantas daninhas em área cultivada com soja resistente ao herbicida glyphosate, sem a utilização de práticas complementares de manejo de plantas daninhas. Foram desenvolvidos experimentos, em condições de campo, nos anos agrícolas 2005/2006 e 2006/200 [...] 7 em Jaboticabal (SP). Foram avaliadas duas cultivares de soja resistentes ao glyphosate (CD 214 RR e M-SOY 8008 RR), oito tratamentos de herbicidas (glyphosate, em aplicação única, nas doses de 0,48; 0,72; 0,96 e 1,20 kg ha-1 de equivalente ácido, associadas ou não a aplicação sequencial na dose de 0,48 kg ha-1), além de duas testemunhas, uma capinada e outra mantida infestada. As cultivares de soja influenciaram na infestação das espécies de plantas daninhas na área. Sem a aplicação de glyphosate, houve o predomínio de X. strumarium na área, desfavorecendo a ocorrência de outras espécies. Quando utilizado glyphosate, independentemente da dose, a infestação contabilizada aos 35 e 40 dias após a primeira aplicação, no primeiro e segundo ano, respectivamente, foi baixa. O controle de plantas daninhas na cultura da soja transgênica é diretamente influenciado pela dose de glyphosate, havendo controle satisfatório com a aplicação única de 0,96 kg ha-1 ou a sequencial de 0,48 + 0,48 kg ha-1 de glyphosate. Em situação de menor infestação (2006/2007), a aplicação única de 0,48 kg ha-1 de glyphosate é suficiente para o controle das plantas daninhas. As cultivares de soja transgênica CD 214 RR e M-SOY 8008 RR influenciam diferencialmente a dinâmica das espécies de plantas daninhas, sendo o controle químico mais efetivo na situação de cultivo de M-SOY 8008 RR, em que houve menor diversidade e desenvolvimento das plantas daninhas.

Soybean varieties influenced the infestation of weed species. Xanthium strumarium was predominant in control treatments, reducing the occurrence of other weeds species. Independently of the dose, glyphosate sprayings resulted in low infestations 35 and 40 days after the first spraying, in the first and second year, respectively. The weed control in transgenic soybean is directly influenced for the glyphosate rate, having satisfactory control with the single application at 0.96 kg ha-1 or sequential at 0.48 plus 0.48 kg ha-1 of glyphosate.

Glyphosate inhibition of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate synthease from suspension-cultured cells of Nicotiana silvestris  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Treatment of isogenic suspension-cultured cells of Nicotiana silvestris Speg, et Comes with glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) led to elevated levels of intracellular shikimate (364-fold increase by 1.0 millimolar glyphosate). In the presence of glyphosate, it is likely that most molecules of shikimate originate from the action of 3-deoxy-d-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate (DAHP) synthase-Mn since this isozyme, in contrast to the DAHP synthase-Co isozyme, is insensitive to inhibition by glyphosate. 5-Enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate (EPSP) synthase (EC 2.5.1.19) from N. silvestris was sensitive to micromolar concentrations of glyphosate and possessed a single inhibitor binding site. Rigorous kinetic studies of EPSP synthase required resolution from the multiple phosphatase activities present in crude extracts, a result achieved by ion-exchange column chromatography. Although EPSP synthase exhibited a broad pH profile (50% of maximal activity between pH 6.2 and 8.5), sensitivity to glyphosate increased dramatically with increasing pH within this range. In accordance with these data and the pK/sub a/ values of glyphosate, it is likely that the ionic form of glyphosate inhibiting EPSP synthase is COO/sup -/CH/sub 2/NH/sub 2//sup +/CH/sub 2/PO/sub 3//sup 2 -/, and that a completely ionized phosphono group is essential for inhibition. At pH 7.0, inhibition was competitive with respect to phosphoenolpyruvate (K/sub i/ = 1.25 micromolar) and uncompetitive with respect to shikimate-3-P (K/sub i/ = 18.3 micromolar). All data were consistent with a mechanism of inhibition in which glyphosate competes with PEP for binding to an (enzyme:shikimate-3-P) complex and ultimately forms the dead-end complex of (enzyme:shikimate-3-P:glyphosate). 36 references, 8 figures, 1 table.

Influence of glyphosate in planktonic and biofilm growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa  

Science.gov (United States)

This study evaluated the impact of different concentrations of glyphosate (Rondup®) on planktonic and biofilm growth of P. aeruginosa. Aerobic and anaerobic cultures of P. aeruginosa ATCC®15442 inoculated in MHB + glyphosate (0.845 ppm, 1.690 ppm, 8.45 ppm, 16.90 ppm, 84.50 ppm, 169 ppm, 845 ppm, and 1690 ppm) and cultured in normoxia and anoxia, following their OD560nm every hour for 24 h. Biofilms of adapted cells were formed in the presence of glyphosate (0.845 to 1690 ppm) in normoxia and anoxia for 36 h. Glyphosate at concentrations higher than 84.5 ppm reduces the cell density of planktonic aerobic cultures (p 0.05), and more pronounced over 169 ppm. Anaerobic biofilms have their growth more readily favored (p glyphosate interferes with the growth ability of P. aeruginosa ATCC®15442. PMID:25477933

Effects of glyphosate and its formulation, roundup, on reproduction in zebrafish (Danio rerio).  

Science.gov (United States)

Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate are among the most widely used herbicides worldwide and may contaminate surface waters. Research suggests both Roundup and glyphosate induce oxidative stress in fish and may also cause reproductive toxicity in mammalian systems. We aimed to investigate the reproductive effects of Roundup and glyphosate in fish and the potential associated mechanisms of toxicity. To do this, we conducted a 21-day exposure of breeding zebrafish (Danio rerio) to 0.01, 0.5, and 10 mg/L (glyphosate acid equivalent) Roundup and 10 mg/L glyphosate. 10 mg/L glyphosate reduced egg production but not fertilization rate in breeding colonies. Both 10 mg/L Roundup and glyphosate increased early stage embryo mortalities and premature hatching. However, exposure during embryogenesis alone did not increase embryo mortality, suggesting that this effect was caused primarily by exposure during gametogenesis. Transcript profiling of the gonads revealed 10 mg/L Roundup and glyphosate induced changes in the expression of cyp19a1 and esr1 in the ovary and hsd3b2, cat, and sod1 in the testis. Our results demonstrate that these chemicals cause reproductive toxicity in zebrafish, although only at high concentrations unlikely to occur in the environment, and likely mechanisms of toxicity include disruption of the steroidogenic biosynthesis pathway and oxidative stress.

Carbon-14-glyphosate behavior in relationship to pedoclimatic conditions and crop sequence.  

Science.gov (United States)

The recognition of glyphosate [(-phosphonomethyl) glycine] behavioral patterns can be readily examined using a pedoclimatic gradient. In the present study, glyphosate adsorption-desorption and degradation were examined under different scenarios in relationship to soil properties and soil use applications. Three sites with varied pedoclimatic conditions and two crop sequences were selected. Adsorption-desorption and glyphosate distribution in mineralized, extractable, and nonextractable fractions were assessed under laboratory conditions. Glyphosate sorption was characterized by isotherms and glyphosate degradation using the distribution of C-glyphosate radioactivity among mineralized fractions, two extractable fractions (in water, ER1; in NHOH, ER2), and nonextractable fractions. Results showed sorption indices (distribution coefficient and Freundlich sorption coefficient : 13.4 ± 0.3-64.1 ± 0.9 L kg and 16.2-60.6, respectively), and hysteresis increased among soil sites associated with decreasing soil particle size adsorption and decreased hysteresis desorption relative to soils under rotation. To our knowledge, these results are the first to demonstrate that soils with identical properties exhibited different glyphosate retention capacities based on crop sequence. We propose possible explanations for this observation. Our results suggested that characterization of the variability in soil property gradients can serve to determine glyphosate behavioral patterns, which can establish a criterion for use in reducing potential environmental risks.

Yield of glyphosate-resistant sugar beets and efficiency of weed management systems with glyphosate and conventional herbicides under German and Polish crop production.  

Science.gov (United States)

In sugar beet production, weed control is one of the most important and most expensive practices to ensure yield. Since glyphosate-resistant sugar beets are not yet approved for cultivation in the EU, little commercial experience exists with these sugar beets in Europe. Experimental field trials were conducted at five environments (Germany, Poland, 2010, 2011) to compare the effects of glyphosate with the effects of conventional weed control programs on the development of weeds, weed control efficiency and yield. The results show that the glyphosate weed control programs compared to the conventional methods decreased not only the number of herbicide applications but equally in magnitude decreased the dosage of active ingredients. The results also showed effective weed control with glyphosate when the weed covering was greater and sugar beets had a later growth stage of four true leaves. Glyphosate-resistant sugar beets applied with the glyphosate herbicide two or three times had an increase in white sugar yield from 4 to 18 % in comparison to the high dosage conventional herbicide systems. In summary, under glyphosate management sugar beets can positively contribute to the increasingly demanding requirements regarding efficient sugar beet cultivation and to the demands by society and politics to reduce the use of chemical plant protection products in the environment.

Herança da resistência de azevém (Lolium multiflorum ao glyphosate Inheritance of azevém (Lolium multiflorum resistance to glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O glyphosate é o principal produto usado para manejo não-seletivo das plantas daninhas. Já foram identificados biótipos de azevém resistentes a esse herbicida no Rio Grande do Sul, os quais estão se tornando predominantes rapidamente. Objetivou-se neste trabalho identificar o tipo de herança, o número de genes que conferem resistência e o grau de resistência dos biótipos homozigotos e heterozigotos resistentes em azevém. Foram realizados cruzamentos recíprocos entre genitores suscetíveis e resistentes para obtenção de sementes F1 e, em seguida, efetuaram-se os retrocruzamentos resistente e sensível. Plantas F1 foram cruzadas, para obtenção da geração F2. Sobre as plantas F1, F2, RCr e RCs e genitores foi aplicado o glyphosate na dose de 720 g ha-1, para avaliar a segregação. A fim de avaliar o grau de resistência, as plantas F1 e os genitores resistente e sensível foram tratados com doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440 e 2.880 g ha-1. As plantas F1 evidenciaram resposta intermediária ao biótipo resistente e sensível, demonstrando que a interação alélica é do tipo dominância incompleta. As plantas F2 mostraram tendência para segregação 3:1, indicando que a característica resistência ao glyphosate é controlada por um gene semidominante.Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide used to control weeds. Azevem plants, which are tolerant to glyphosate, have been identified in Rio Grande do Sul, where they are rapidly becoming predominant. The objective of this work was to identify inheritance type, number of genes conferring resistance, and the degree of resistance in azevem plants. Reciprocal crossings between sensitive and resistant plants have been carried out to obtain F1 seeds which were crossed among themselves to obtain F2 plants .Herbicide containing 720 g ha-1 was applied on the F1, F2, RCr, Rc and parent plants to estimate segregation. To evaluate the degree of resistance of the F1 plants, resistant and sensitive parents were sprayed with increasing rates of glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440 and 2.880 g ha-1. F1 plants showed intermediate response to the resistant and sensitive biotypes, indicating that allelic interaction is of the incomplete dominance type. F2 plants showed a tendency for segregation 3:1, indicating that resistance to glyphosate is controlled by a semi-dominant gene.

Glyphosate resistance: state of knowledge  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Studies of mechanisms of resistance to glyphosate have increased current understanding of herbicide resistance mechanisms. Thus far, single-codon non-synonymous mutations of EPSPS (5-enolypyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase) have been rare and, relative to other herbicide mode of action target-site mutations, unconventionally weak in magnitude for resistance to glyphosate. However, it is possible that weeds will emerge with non-synonymous mutations of two codons of EPSPS to produce an enzym...

Micromorfologia foliar na análise da fitotoxidez por glyphosate em Eucalyptus grandis Leaf micromorphology in the analysis of glyphosate toxicity in Eucalyptus grandis  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Foram avaliados os efeitos da deriva de formulações comerciais de glyphosate sobre a superfície foliar e o crescimento de clones de eucalipto. Mudas de seis clones foram submetidas a 129,6 g ha-1 de glyphosate das formulações comerciais Scout®, Roundup NA®, Roundup transorb® e Zapp QI®. Entre os clones não foram identificadas diferenças quanto à tolerância ao glyphosate. Plantas expostas à deriva simulada de Roundup transorb® e Zapp QI® apresentaram, respectivamente, a maior e menor porcentagem de intoxicação. Observou-se menor massa seca em plantas expostas ao glyphosate, independentemente da formulação, e menor altura naquelas expostas ao Scout® e ao Roundup transorb®. As características quantitativas da superfície foliar não foram afetadas pelo glyphosate. As alterações micromorfológicas ocorreram na ausência de danos visíveis e foram observadas em ambas as faces da epiderme, em todos os clones avaliados. Danos como erosão e aspecto amorfo das ceras epicuticulares e infestação por hifas fúngicas ocorreram, independentemente da formulação utilizada. A avaliação anatômica da superfície foliar foi relevante para descrição e interpretação dos danos causados pelo glyphosate. Os dados de crescimento e de intoxicação indicam o Zapp QI® como a formulação de menor risco para a cultura do eucalipto quanto aos efeitos indesejáveis da deriva.The effects of commercial glyphosate drift on the leaf surface and growth of eucalypt clones were evaluated. Seedlings of six clones were submitted to 129.6 g ha-1 sub-rate of commercial glyphosate formulations Scout®, Roundup NA®, Roundup transorb® and Zapp QI®. No differences in tolerance to glyphosate were observed among the clones. Plants exposed to simulated drift of Roundup transorb® and Zapp QI® presented the highest and lowest intoxication percentages, respectively. Plants exposed to glyphosate reduced dry biomass, regardless of the formulation, and also reduced height of the plants exposed to Scout® and Roundup transorb®. Leaf surface characteristics were not affected by glyphosate application. However, the micromorphological damages occurred prior to the appearance of visible symptoms, and were observed on both faces of the epidermis, in all clones tested. Damages such as erosion and amorphous aspect of epicuticular waxes and infestation of fungal hyphae occurred, independently of the formulation used. The anatomical evaluation of the leaf surface effectively described the damages caused by glyphosate.

Já as doses entre 1.440 e 5.760 g e.a. ha-1 de glyphosate reduzem significativamente a produção de matéria seca e resultam em toxicidade inferior a 45%. Em campo, os melhores controles de azevém foram propiciados pelos tratamentos clethodim (79,2 g ha-1) e diuron + paraquat (300 + 600 g ha-1), que não diferiram entre si.

Photosynthetic activity of coffee after application of glyphosate subdoses / Atividade fotossintética do cafeeiro após aplicação de subdoses de glyphosate  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Para o controle de plantas daninhas em lavouras cafeeiras, os produtores utilizam herbicidas não-seletivos, como o glyphosate, empregado em aplicações dirigidas. Apesar de todos os cuidados com a aplicação, são constatados casos de intoxicação em plantas, sendo de fundamental importância o conhecime [...] nto dos efeitos sobre os processos fotossintéticos. Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar as características associadas à atividade fotossintética entre cultivares de cafeeiro submetidos a doses de glyphosate. O experimento foi conduzido em casa de vegetação utilizando-se três cultivares de cafeeiro (Coffea arabica): Acaiá (MG-6851), Catucaí Amarelo (2 SL) e Topázio (MG-1190) e, três subdoses do glyphosate (0,0; 115,2 e 460,8 g ha-1), em esquema fatorial 3 x 3. Em função da aplicação do herbicida observou-se redução de carbono interno, razão carbono interno e do ambiente, consumo de carbono e taxa fotossintética, aos 15 DAA na quarta folha. Na mesma folha aos 45 DAA, constatou-se menor consumo de carbono pelos cultivares. Na última folha apesar de inferiores concentrações de carbono, não obteve-se diferença no consumo e taxa fotossintética. O glyphosate resulta em danos metabólicos com efeitos transitórios sobre a atividade fotossintética, sendo o cultivar Acaiá o mais tolerante. Este efeito transitório pode resultar em danos prolongados e irreversíveis no crescimento da cultura. Abstract in english Farmers use non-selective herbicides, such as glyphosate, in directed applications to control weeds in coffee crops. Despite the precautions used during the application of herbicides, there are usually reports of poisoning in plantation areas. Moreover, it is fundamental to understand the effects of [...] glyphosate on photosynthetic processes. The present study aimed to evaluate the characteristics associated with the photosynthetic activity in coffee cultivars subjected to doses of glyphosate. The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse using three varieties of coffee (Coffea arabica), including Acaiá (MG-6851), Catucaí Amarelo (2 SL) and Topázio (MG-1190), and three subdoses of glyphosate (0.0, 115.2 and 460.8 g ha-1) in a 3 x 3 factorial scheme. Herbicide application led to reduced internal carbon, ratio between internal and environmental carbon, carbon consumption and photosynthetic rate at 15 days after application (DAA) in the fourth leaf. In the same leaf at 45 DAA, the carbon consumption of the cultivars was even less. Despite low carbon concentrations, no difference in consumption and photosynthetic rate was observed in the last leaf. Glyphosate caused metabolic damage with transitory effects on the photosynthetic rate; the Acaiá cultivar was the most tolerant. These transitory effects may result in irreversible and prolonged damage to crop growth.

Selectivity of glyphosate tank mixtures for RR soybean Seletividade de glyphosate em misturas em tanque para soja RR  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available An active ingredients mixture of different action mechanisms is an essential tool to prevent or manage areas with resistant weeds. However, it is important that such a mixture provides adequate selectivity to the crop. The aim of this work was to evaluate glyphosate selectivity to glyphosate-resistant (RR soybean, and also verify if there is selectivity in mixtures with other active ingredients applied postemergence aimed at new control strategies, which might be used in RR soybean cultivation. The herbicides and respective rates (g ha-1 evaluated were: glyphosate (720, 960, 1,200, and 1,440, and the mixtures of glyphosate (960 with cloransulam-methyl (30.24, fomesafen (125, lactofen (72, chlorimuron-ethyl (12.5, flumiclorac-pentyl (30, bentazon (480, or imazethapyr (80. All treatments were applied in postemergence when the soybean crop was at V2 to V3 stage. Treatments with glyphosate or in mixtures with postemergent herbicides showed visual effects of phytotoxicity when applied to the glyphosate-resistant soybean. Effects such as reduction in plant height, crop closure, number of pods per plant, and hundred grain weight could be observed. However, the effects related to plant development were mostly transient and did not persist during the crop cycle. Among the studied treatments, only the mixture of glyphosate and lactofen was not selective to the crop, promoting negative effects on most characteristics analyzed and consequently reducing grain yield.A mistura de ingredientes ativos de diferentes mecanismos de ação é uma ferramenta essencial para prevenir ou manejar áreas com plantas daninhas resistentes. No entanto é importante que tais associações forneçam adequada seletividade para a cultura. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a seletividade do glyphosate a soja RR, e verificar também, se existe seletividade a misturas com outros ingredientes ativos, aplicados em pós-emergência, visando novas estratégias de controle que poderão ser empregadas no cultivo da soja RR. Os herbicidas e respectivas doses (g ha-1 avaliadas foram: glyphosate isolado (720, 960, 1.200 e 1.440 e as misturas de glyphosate (960 com cloransulam-methyl (30,24, fomesafen (125, lactofen (72, chlorimuron-ethyl (12,5, flumiclorac-pentyl (30, bentazon (480 e imazethapyr (80. Todos os tratamentos foram aplicados em dose única em pós-emergência quando a soja estava no estádio V2 a V3. Tratamentos com glyphosate isolado ou em mistura com herbicidas pós-emergentes aplicados em dose única promoveram efeitos visuais de fitointoxicação quando aplicados na soja resistente ao glyphosate. Efeitos como redução na altura das plantas, no fechamento da cultura, no número de vagens por planta e na massa de cem grãos puderam ser observados. Entretanto, os efeitos relatados ao desenvolvimento das plantas foram na sua maioria transientes, não persistindo durante todo ciclo da cultura. Dentre os tratamentos estudados, somente a mistura entre glyphosate e lactofen não apresentou seletividade à cultura, promovendo efeitos negativos na maioria das características estudadas e consequentemente reduzindo a produtividade de grãos.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese A associação micorrízica favorece o estabelecimento, a sobrevivência no campo e a nutrição da planta hospedeira, levando por consequência, a maior crescimento e produtividade. Todavia, o manejo de plantas daninhas no cafeeiro pode interferir nessa associação, podendo o emprego incorreto do glyphosat [...] e influenciar nesses benefícios da associação. Avaliou-se neste trabalho efeito da deriva do herbicida glyphosate no crescimento e estado nutricional de plantas de café arábica (Catuaí Vermelho IAC 99) inoculadas com fungos micorrízicos arbusculares (FMAs). Para isso, utilizou-se esquema fatorial 2 x 5, sendo mudas inoculadas ou não inoculadas com FMAs e cinco subdoses de glyphosate (0; 57,6; 115,2; 230,4; e 460,8 g ha-1 de glyphosate), em delineamento de blocos casualizados com cinco repetições. A inoculação foi efetuada na fase de produção de muda, com uma mistura de FMAs, Rhizophagus clarus e Gigaspora margarita; posteriormente ao transplantio, quando as plantas estavam com sete pares de folhas, aplicaram-se as subdoses de glyphosate. O herbicida causou fitointoxicação de até 60% em plantas não inoculadas e de 45% em plantas inoculadas com aplicação da maior dose de 460,8 g e.a. ha-1. Verificou-se efeito negativo no crescimento das plantas de café e do teor de fósforo delas com o aumento das doses de glyphosate, independentemente da inoculação. O herbicida reduziu o crescimento de plantas colonizadas pelos FMAs testados, bem como de fungos nativos, afetando negativamente a colonização micorrízica das plantas tratadas com o glyphosate. Abstract in english Mycorrhizal association promotes better survival and nutrition of colonized seedling on field, and consequently, increasing of productivity. However, the weed management can interfere on this association, due to incorrect use of glyphosate. This work has assessed the effects of glyphosate drift on t [...] he growth and nutrition of arabica coffee plants (Catuaí Vermelho - IAC 99) colonized with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). The experiment was conducted in 2 x 5 factorial scheme, and included inoculated and non-inoculated plants, and five glyphosate subdoses (0.0, 57.6, 115.2, 230.4, and 460.8 g ha-1 of glyphosate), in randomized blocks with five replication. The inoculation was carried during the greenhouse phase of seedlings production with a mixture of Rhizophagus clarus and Gigaspora margarita, and after to transplanting, when the plants had seven pairs of leaves, glyphosate subdoses were applied. The product caused intoxication in up to 60% of non-inoculated and 45% on inoculated plants, when the highest dose of 460.8 g a.e. ha-1 was applied. A negative effect was noted on the growth and phosphorus content of coffee plants, this effect increased depending on glyphosate subdose, but regardless of inoculation. Glyphosate drift reduces the growth and nutrition of plants colonized by species of AMF and native fungi, negatively affecting root colonization of plants treated.

Crop Response to Glyphosate Trimesium Sulphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate may cause injury to non-target plants. The first detectable symptom after glyphosate treatment is the growth inhibition, followed by noticeable yellowing (chlorosis of the treated tissue. Five to ten days after the treatment, the chlorosis turns into necrosis and the plants begin to die. Greenhouse research was conducted in 2007 to investigate the response of glyphosate resistant (GR soybeans PAN 520 line and non-glyphosate resistant EGRET line of soybeans to glyphosate trimesium sulphosate and to evaluate soybeans injury to help in weed resistance detection. The methods used to detect changes were dose response test, HPLC measurement based on glyphosate induced accumulation of shikimate, and morpho-anatomical changes (light and electron microscopy. Damaged chloroplasts are a clear indication of a glyphosate injury. If the injury rating is related to increased shikimate levels, there is greater certainty that differences among biotypes are due to glyphosate tolerance.

Glyphosate inhibits rust diseases in glyphosate-resistant wheat and soybean  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum herbicide used for the control of weeds in glyphosate-resistant crops. Glyphosate inhibits 5-enolpyruvyl shikimate 3-phosphate synthase, a key enzyme in the synthesis of aromatic amino acids in plants, fungi, and bacteria. Studies with glyphosate-resistant wheat have shown that glyphosate provided both preventive and curative activities against Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici and Puccinia triticina, which cause stripe and leaf rusts, respectively, in wheat. ...

Glyphosate is an important herbicide for the control of weeds and volunteer crops in production systems with conservation tillage or direct drilling. For a feasible timing of the glyphosate application it is essential that the following crops are not aggrieved by soil uptake of glyphosate. In field trials over several years it was confirmed that a usual application with 1800 g/ha glyphosate poses no risk for the growth of subsequent corn or winter wheat. Low yields could be caused by differen...

Sub-lethal glyphosate exposure alters flowering phenology and causes transient male-sterility in Brassica spp  

Science.gov (United States)

Background Herbicide resistance in weedy plant populations can develop through different mechanisms such as gene flow of herbicide resistance transgenes from crop species into compatible weedy species or by natural evolution of herbicide resistance or tolerance following selection pressure. Results from our previous studies suggest that sub-lethal levels of the herbicide glyphosate can alter the pattern of gene flow between glyphosate resistant Canola®, Brassica napus, and glyphosate sensitive varieties of B. napus and B. rapa. The objectives of this study were to examine the phenological and developmental changes that occur in Brassica crop and weed species following sub-lethal doses of the herbicides glyphosate and glufosinate. We examined several vegetative and reproductive traits of potted plants under greenhouse conditions, treated with sub-lethal herbicide sprays. Results Our results indicate that exposure of Brassica spp. to a sub-lethal dose of glyphosate results in altering flowering phenology and reproductive function. Flowering of all sensitive species was significantly delayed and reproductive function, specifically male fertility, was suppressed. Higher dosage levels typically contributed to an increase in the magnitude of phenotypic changes. Conclusions These results demonstrate that Brassica spp. plants that are exposed to sub-lethal doses of glyphosate could be subject to very different pollination patterns and an altered pattern of gene flow that would result from changes in the overlap of flowering phenology between species. Implications include the potential for increased glyphosate resistance evolution and spread in weedy communities exposed to sub-lethal glyphosate. PMID:24655547

Full Text Available A dessecação de plantas de soja em pré-colheita com glyphosate vem se tornando prática rotineira entre os produtores, apesar de não ser recomendada, pois pode comprometer a qualidade fisiológica das sementes. Objetivou-se avaliar os efeitos da dessecação das plantas em pré-colheita com glyphosate na qualidade fisiológica de sementes de soja colhidas em duas épocas após a aplicação. O delineamento experimental foi em blocos ao acaso, com quatro repetições, em esquema de parcelas subdivididas. As parcelas principais consistiram da dessecação ou não das plantas de soja com glyphosate em pré-colheita, no estádio R7, e as subparcelas da colheita das sementes 7 e 14 dias após a aplicação. As sementes foram avaliadas quanto ao teor de água, dano mecânico, viabilidade, massa de 100 sementes e teor de proteína. A qualidade fisiológica foi avaliada por meio dos testes de germinação, envelhecimento acelerado, condutividade elétrica, comprimento de plântulas e massa da matéria seca das plântulas. A dessecação das plantas de soja em pré-colheita com glyphosate ocasiona redução da germinação das sementes e do desenvolvimento inicial das plântulas. O atraso na colheita reduz a germinação das sementes oriundas de plantas de soja dessecadas com glyphosate em pré-colheita, mas minimiza os efeitos fitotóxicos no desenvolvimento das plântulas.Pre-harvest desiccation of soybean plants with glyphosate has been routinely conducted by seed producers, although it is not recommended because it may reduce seed physiological quality. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of the pre-harvest desiccation of plants with glyphosate on the physiological quality of soybean seeds harvested at two different periods after application. The experimental design was completely randomized blocks, with four replications and subdivided plots. Main plots consisted of the presence and absence of a pre-harvest desiccation of soybean plants with glyphosate at the R7 stage, and subplots of seeds harvested 7 and 14 days after application. Moisture content, mechanical damage, viability, weight of 100 seeds, protein content and accumulation of glyphosate residues were determined after harvest. Physiological quality was evaluated by tests for germination, accelerated aging, electrical conductivity, seedling length and seedling dry matter. Pre-harvest desiccation of soybean plants with glyphosate reduces seed germination and seedling development. Delayed harvesting reduces the germination of soybean seeds produced by plants desiccated with glyphosate, but minimizes phytotoxicity in seedling development.

O atraso na colheita reduz a germinação das sementes oriundas de plantas de soja dessecadas com glyphosate em pré-colheita, mas minimiza os efeitos fitotóxicos no desenvolvimento das plântulas. Abstract in english Pre-harvest desiccation of soybean plants with glyphosate has been routinely conducted by seed producers, although it is not recommended because it may reduce seed physiological quality. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of the pre-harvest desiccation of plants with glyphosate [...] on the physiological quality of soybean seeds harvested at two different periods after application. The experimental design was completely randomized blocks, with four replications and subdivided plots. Main plots consisted of the presence and absence of a pre-harvest desiccation of soybean plants with glyphosate at the R7 stage, and subplots of seeds harvested 7 and 14 days after application. Moisture content, mechanical damage, viability, weight of 100 seeds, protein content and accumulation of glyphosate residues were determined after harvest. Physiological quality was evaluated by tests for germination, accelerated aging, electrical conductivity, seedling length and seedling dry matter. Pre-harvest desiccation of soybean plants with glyphosate reduces seed germination and seedling development. Delayed harvesting reduces the germination of soybean seeds produced by plants desiccated with glyphosate, but minimizes phytotoxicity in seedling development.

RDX-based nanocomposite microparticles for significantly reduced shock sensitivity  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine (RDX)-based nanocomposite microparticles were produced by a simple, yet novel spray drying method. The microparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), which shows that they consist of small RDX crystals (?0.1-1 ?m) uniformly and discretely dispersed in a binder. The microparticles were subsequently pressed to produce dense energetic materials which exhibited a markedly lower shock sensitivity. The low sensitivity was attributed to small crystal size as well as small void size (?250 nm). The method developed in this work may be suitable for the preparation of a wide range of insensitive explosive compositions.

Reducing the temperature sensitivity of SOI waveguide-based biosensors  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Label-free photonic biosensors fabricated on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) can provide compact size, high evanescent field strength at the silicon waveguide surface, and volume fabrication potential. However, due to the large thermo optic coefficient of water-based biosamples, the sensors are temperature-sensitive. Consequently, active temperature control is usually used. However, for low cost applications, active temperature control is often not feasible. Here, we use the opposite polarity of t...

Reducing the temperature sensitivity of SOI waveguide-based biosensors  

Science.gov (United States)

Label-free photonic biosensors fabricated on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) can provide compact size, high evanescent field strength at the silicon waveguide surface, and volume fabrication potential. However, due to the large thermo optic coefficient of water-based biosamples, the sensors are temperature-sensitive. Consequently, active temperature control is usually used. However, for low cost applications, active temperature control is often not feasible. Here, we use the opposite polarity of the thermo-optic coefficients of silicon and water to demonstrate a photonic slot waveguide with a distribution of power between sample and silicon that aims to give athermal operation in water. Based on simulations, we made three waveguide designs close to the athermal point, and asymmetric integrated Mach- Zehnder interferometers for their characterization. The devices were fabricated on SOI with a 220 nm device layer and 2 ?m buried oxide, by electron beam lithography of hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ) resist, and etching in a Cl2/HBr/O2/He plasma. With Cargile 50350 fused silica matching oil as top cladding, the group index of the three guides varies from 1.9 to 2.8 at 1550 nm. The temperature sensitivity of the devices varied from -70 to -160 pm/K under the same conditions. A temperature sensitivity of -2 pm/K is projected with water as top cladding.

At 45 and 120 days after glyphosate application (DAA), increase in leaf area, stem diameter, number of leaves and plagiotropic branches was evaluated, being initially measured on the day the herbicide was applied, and plant intoxication rate at 10, 45 and 120 DAA. Dry matter of leaves, roots and stem, and root length and density were measured at 120 DAA. Symptoms of coffee plant intoxication caused by glyphosate were similar in different cultivars, being characterized by chlorosis and leaf narrowing. Increase in the number of leaves, plagiotropic branches and stem diameter, regardless of the cultivar, was not affected by glyphosate. Cultivar Topázio was the most sensitive to glyphosate, in terms of accumulation of leaf area, root dry matter and root density.

Abstract in english The effects of commercial glyphosate drift on the leaf surface and growth of eucalypt clones were evaluated. Seedlings of six clones were submitted to 129.6 g ha-1 sub-rate of commercial glyphosate formulations Scout®, Roundup NA®, Roundup transorb® and Zapp QI®. No differences in tolerance to glyph [...] osate were observed among the clones. Plants exposed to simulated drift of Roundup transorb® and Zapp QI® presented the highest and lowest intoxication percentages, respectively. Plants exposed to glyphosate reduced dry biomass, regardless of the formulation, and also reduced height of the plants exposed to Scout® and Roundup transorb®. Leaf surface characteristics were not affected by glyphosate application. However, the micromorphological damages occurred prior to the appearance of visible symptoms, and were observed on both faces of the epidermis, in all clones tested. Damages such as erosion and amorphous aspect of epicuticular waxes and infestation of fungal hyphae occurred, independently of the formulation used. The anatomical evaluation of the leaf surface effectively described the damages caused by glyphosate. The growth and intoxication data indicate Zapp QI® formulation as presenting the lowest risk to eucalypt culture, in relation to the undesirable herbicide drift effects.

Degradation Dynamics of Glyphosate in Different Types of Citrus Orchard Soils in China  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate formulations that are used as a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide have been widely applied in agriculture, causing increasing concerns about residues in soils. In this study, the degradation dynamics of glyphosate in different types of citrus orchard soils in China were evaluated under field conditions. Glyphosate soluble powder and aqueous solution were applied at 3000 and 5040 g active ingredient/hm2, respectively, in citrus orchard soils, and periodically drawn soil samples were analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography. The results showed that the amount of glyphosate and its degradation product aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA in soils was reduced with the increase of time after application of glyphosate formulations. Indeed, the amount of glyphosate in red soil from Hunan and Zhejiang Province, and clay soil from Guangxi Province varied from 0.13 to 0.91 µg/g at 42 days after application of aqueous solution. Furthermore, the amount of glyphosate in medium loam from Zhejiang and Guangdong Province, and brown loam from Guizhou Province varied from less than 0.10 to 0.14 µg/g, while the amount of AMPA varied from less than 0.10 to 0.99 µg/g at 42 days after application of soluble powder. Overall, these findings demonstrated that the degradation dynamics of glyphosate aqueous solution and soluble powder as well as AMPA depend on the physicochemical properties of the applied soils, in particular soil pH, which should be carefully considered in the application of glyphosate herbicide.

Glyphosate-Resistant Giant Ragweed (Ambrosia trifida L.: 2,4-D Dose Response and Control with Postemergence Herbicides in Soybean  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate resistant giant ragweed is an increasing problem in glyphosate resistant cropping systems in southwestern Ontario. The postemergence herbicides registered for use in soybean in Ontario do not provide consistent control of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed. There is limited research on the lowest effective rate of 2,4-D for the control of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed. Consequently, the objectives of this study were a to determine the efficacy of herbicides applied postemergence for the control of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed in glyphosate resistant soybean, and b to determine the lowest effective rate of 2,4-D for the control of glyphosate-resistant giant ragweed. Ten postemergence herbicide combinations and seven rates of 2,4-D were evaluated in field studies conducted in 2011 and 2012 at six locations confirmed with glyphosate-resistant giant ragweed. The post emergence herbicides evaluated did not provide acceptable/consistent control. Of the herbicides evaluated, glyphosate plus cloransulam-methyl provided 26% to 70% control 8 WAA of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed, which was the best of the herbicides combinations evaluated. The doses of 2,4-D required to reduce giant ragweed shoot dry weight by 50, 80 and 95% were 142, 310 and 1048 g a.e. ha-1, respectively.

Changes in the accumulation of shikimic acid in mycorrhized Capsicum annuum L. grown with application of glyphosate and phosphorus  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in english When glyphosate is added to the soil, it is absorbed by roots and transported by xylem causing growth inhibition in plants. Mycorrhiza is the beneficial association between roots of most plants and soil fungi. The methylphosphonic group of the glyphosate could compete with inorganic phosphates for s [...] orption sites in the soil. The aim of this work was to study the effect of phosphorus availability and glyphosate residues in soil on pepper plant growth, and on physiological parameters, in plants non-inoculated or inoculated with Glomus mosseae or G. intraradices. The phytotoxic effects of the glyphosate were assessed by a bio-indicator as shikimic acid. At high doses, glyphosate (6.32 ?M) reduced root colonization, and this effect was increased by higher levels of phosphorus in the soil. The effects of herbicide on shikimic acid accumulation and on shoot growth began 24 hours after glyphosate treatments (HAT). At 24, 48, and 72 HAT, inoculated plants grown without glyphosate showed higher growth compared to the non-inoculated ones. At high glyphosate (6.32 ?M) and 96 HAT, the growth was completely inhibited. The shikimic acid accumulated in the upper leaves of non-inoculated plants, treated at 3.16 ?M glyphosate, was significantly higher at high P level, related to inoculated ones. These results suggest that the remobilization of glyphosate residues in the soil by the addition of phosphate should be considered a serious problem for crops in treated soils. The mycorrhization increases the pepper plant's tolerance to high glyphosate concentration in the substrate, and may allow support to this stress condition.

Glyphosate catabolism by Pseudomonas sp  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The pathway for the degradation of glyphosate (N-phosphonomethylglycine) by Pseudomonas sp. PG2982 has been determined using metabolic radiolabeling experiments. Radiorespirometry experiments utilizing [3-14C] glyphosate revealed that approximately 50-59% of the C3 carbon was oxidized to CO2. Fractionation of stationary phase cells labeled with [3-14C]glyphosate revealed that from 45-47% of the assimilated C3 carbon is distributed to proteins and that amino acids methionine and serine are highly labeled. The nucleic acid bases adenine and guanine received 90% of the C3 label that was incorporated into nucleic acids, and the only pyrimidine base labeled was thymine. Pulse labeling of PG2982 cells with [3-14C]glyphosate revealed that [3-14C]sarcosine is an intermediate in glyphosate degradation. Examination of crude extracts prepared from PG2982 cells revealed the presence of an enzyme that oxidizes sarcosine to glycine and formaldehyde. These results indicate that the first step in glyphosate degradation by PG2982 is cleavage of the carbon-phosphorus bond, resulting in the release of sarcosine and a phosphate group. The phosphate group is utilized as a source of phosphorus, and the sarcosine is degraded to glycine and formaldehyde. Phosphonate utilization by Pseudomonas sp. PG2982 was investigated. Each of the ten phosphonates tested were utilized as a sole source of phosphorus by PG2982. Representative compounds torus by PG2982. Representative compounds tested included alkylphosphonates, 1-amino-substituted alkylphosphonates, amino-terminal phosphonates, and an arylphosphonate. PG2982 cultures degraded phenylphosphonate to benzene and produced methane from methylphosphonate. The data indicate that PG2982 is capable of cleaving the carbon-phosphorus bond of several structurally different phosphonates

Dessecação de plantas daninhas com glyphosate em mistura com ureia ou sulfato de amônio Weed desiccation with glyphosate mixed with urea or ammonium sulfate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O glyphosate é um herbicida não-seletivo, sistêmico, usado para controle de plantas daninhas anuais e perenes em todo o mundo. A absorção da molécula do glyphosate ocorre pelos tecidos fotossinteticamente ativos das plantas, porém alguns fatores podem reduzir sua eficácia, como a morfologia e diversidade de espécies, chuva após aplicação, qualidade da água e misturas em tanque com outros defensivos, entre outros. Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar a influência da adição de sulfato de amônio ou ureia em calda na eficácia do herbicida glyphosate para dessecação de plantas daninhas. Dois experimentos foram desenvolvidos em Piracicaba - SP, com aplicações de glyphosate (720 e 1.440 g ha-1 isolado ou combinado com duas doses de sulfato de amônio (7,5 e 15,0 g L-1 ou ureia (2,5 e 5,0 g L-1 sobre as plantas daninhas: apaga-fogo (Alternanthera tenella e capim-massambará (Sorghum halepense.

Contudo, os efeitos não foram observados nas avaliações de controle, massa fresca e seca, conduzidas aos 28 DAA. A dose recomendada de glyphosate para cada espécie proporcionou controle satisfatório, sem a necessidade de adição de sulfato de amônio ou ureia.Glyphosate is a non-selective systemic herbicide used to control annual and perennial weeds worldwide. Molecule absorption occurs through the plant's photosynthetically-active tissues; however, some factors might reduce its efficacy, such as morphology and specific diversity, rain after application, water quality and tank mixtures with other chemicals. Thus, this work aimed to evaluate the influence of ammonium sulfate or urea addiction to spray tank on glyphosate efficacy for weed desiccation. Two trials were carried out in Piracicaba - SP, with applications of glyphosate (720 and 1440 g ha-1 alone or combined with two rates of ammonium sulfate (7.5 and 15.0 g L-1 or urea (2.5 and 5.0 g L-1, over the weeds Alternanthera tenella and Sorghum halepense. For the least susceptible species (S. halepense, the addition of nitrogen sources to the lower rate of glyphosate accelerated plant death, increasing the control levels up to 7.3%, at 21 days after application (DAA. However, the effects were not observed when control, fresh and dry mass were evaluated at 28 DAA. Glyphosate recommended rate for each species promoted appropriate control, without the need to add ammonium sulfate or urea.

Ocular herpes simplex virus infections: reduced sensitivity to acyclovir in primary disease.  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Forty isolates of herpes simplex virus (HSV) obtained from ocular herpetic infections were assayed for their sensitivity to five antiviral agents. There were wide ranges of sensitivity to foscarnet, idoxuridine, and vidarabine, but the majority were sensitive to acyclovir and ganciclovir. Reduced sensitivity to acyclovir was seen in four isolates, all of which were from primary infections acquired in the community and without a previous history of treatment with antiviral drugs.

Latex glove disorders: a management strategy for reducing skin sensitivity.  

Science.gov (United States)

The use of latex gloves by health care workers has increased over recent years. Proteins within the latex gloves and chemical additives during the manufacturing process have been linked to allergic skin and systemic disorders. Evidence suggests that latex-related skin disorders are increasing. Unless more stringent measures to control prolonged contact with latex gloves are implemented, skin disorders will continue to increase. While employees have a professional responsibility to reduce longer contact with latex gloves and use other safer alternatives, employers may also contribute through better education provisions, more strict monitoring and control of glove usage and purchasing gloves that are safer. An Infection Control Nurse can support both employees and management by developing and supporting better education and guidance for glove usage and an Employee Health Nurse could provide better care and support to affected workers. Glove manufacturers should identify the level of each protein in their gloves, the health risks involved and undertake new research to produce more hypoallergenic gloves. Collaborative efforts among employees, employers, researchers and glove manufacturers are needed to prevent the spiraling latex health risks to health care workers getting worse. PMID:11982783

The effect of glyphosate on import into a sink leaf of sugar beet  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The basis for glyphosate inducted limitation of carbon import into developing leaves was studied in sugar beet. To separate the effects of the herbicide on export from those on import, glyphosate was supplied to a developing leaf from two exporting source leaves which fed the sink leaf. Carbon import into the sink leaf was determined by supplying 14CO2 to a third source leaf which also supplies carbon to the monitored sink leaf. Import into the sink leaf decreased within 2 to 3 h after glyphosate application, even though photosynthesis and export in the source leaf supplying 14C were unaffected. Reduced import into the sink leaf was accompanied by increased import by the tap root. Elongation of the sink leaf was only slightly decreased following arrival of glyphosate. Photosynthesis by the sink leaf was not inhibited. The results to data support the view that import is slowed by the inhibition of synthesis of structural or storage compounds in the developing leaves

Aerobic and anaerobic cultures of P. aeruginosa ATCC®15442 inoculated in MHB + glyphosate (0.845 ppm, 1.690 ppm, 8.45 ppm, 16.90 ppm, 84.50 ppm, 169 ppm, 845 ppm, an [...] d 1690 ppm) and cultured in normoxia and anoxia, following their OD560nm every hour for 24 h. Biofilms of adapted cells were formed in the presence of glyphosate (0.845 to 1690 ppm) in normoxia and anoxia for 36 h. Glyphosate at concentrations higher than 84.5 ppm reduces the cell density of planktonic aerobic cultures (p 0.05), and more pronounced over 169 ppm. Anaerobic biofilms have their growth more readily favored (p

Glyphosate herbicide affects belowground interactions between earthworms and symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi in a model ecosystem  

Science.gov (United States)

Herbicides containing glyphosate are widely used in agriculture and private gardens, however, surprisingly little is known on potential side effects on non-target soil organisms. In a greenhouse experiment with white clover we investigated, to what extent a globally-used glyphosate herbicide affects interactions between essential soil organisms such as earthworms and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). We found that herbicides significantly decreased root mycorrhization, soil AMF spore biomass, vesicles and propagules. Herbicide application and earthworms increased soil hyphal biomass and tended to reduce soil water infiltration after a simulated heavy rainfall. Herbicide application in interaction with AMF led to slightly heavier but less active earthworms. Leaching of glyphosate after a simulated rainfall was substantial and altered by earthworms and AMF. These sizeable changes provide impetus for more general attention to side-effects of glyphosate-based herbicides on key soil organisms and their associated ecosystem services.

The impact of Eskoba, a glyphosate formulation, on the freshwater plankton community.  

Science.gov (United States)

This study analyzed the acute effects of a glyphosate-based herbicide (Eskoba) on the microalgae Chlorella vulgaris, the cladoceran Simocephalus vetulus, and the copepod Notodiaptomus conifer, and evaluated the recovery ability of the surviving micro-crustaceans. Survival, age of first reproduction, and fecundity were used as endpoints for S. vetulus, while survival and time to reach the adult stage were used as endpoints for N. conifer. The registered order of sensitivity was S. vetulus (48-hour effective concentration [EC50]: 21 mg/L) > C. vulgaris (72-hour EC50: 58.59 mg/ L) > N. conifer (48-hour EC50: 95 mg/L). Despite the growth of C. vulgaris stimulated after 24 hours of exposure to the commercial formulation of glyphosate Eskoba, it was inhibited after 48 hours by all the concentrations tested. In postexposure experiments, microcrustaceans reduced their life expectancy, S. vetulus decreased its fertility, and N. conifer inhibited its sexual maturity. In summary, it was demonstrated that these species lost their recovery ability. PMID:25654931

Physiological and biochemical characterization of glyphosate resistant Ambrosia trifida L.  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Giant ragweed (Ambrosia trifida L.) is an annual plant that persists in crop and non-crop areas. Agronomic producers often use glyphosate, the most widely used herbicide in the world, to control giant ragweed in glyphosate resistant crops. Glyphosate inhibits EPSP synthase, the key enzyme of the shikimate pathway. Repeated use of glyphosate has resulted in the occurrence of glyphosate resistant giant ragweed populations in Indiana. ^ Initial studies confirmed glyphosate resistance in a gian...

Early Detection of Crop Injury from Glyphosate on Soybean and Cotton Using Plant Leaf Hyperspectral Data  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available In this paper, we aim to detect crop injury from glyphosate, a herbicide, by both traditionally used spectral indices and newly extracted features with leaf hyperspectral reflectance data for non-Glyphosate-Resistant (non-GR soybean and non-GR cotton. The new features were extracted by canonical analysis technique, which could provide the largest separability to distinguish the injured leaves from the healthy ones. Spectral bands used for constructing these new features were selected based on the sensitivity analysis results of a physically-based leaf radiation transfer model (leaf optical PROperty SPECTra model, PROSPECT, which could help extend the effectiveness of these features to a wide range of leaf structures and growing conditions. This approach has been validated with greenhouse measured data acquired in glyphosate treatment experiments. Results indicated that glyphosate injury could be detected by NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, RVI (Ratio Vegetation Index, SAVI (Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index, and DVI (Difference Vegetation Index in 48 h After the Treatment (HAT for soybean and in 72 HAT for cotton, but the other spectral indices either showed little use for separation, or did not show consistent separation for healthy and injured soybean and cotton. Compared with the traditional spectral indices, the new features were more feasible for the early detection of glyphosate injury, with leaves sprayed with a higher rate of glyphosate solution having larger feature values. This trend became more and more pronounced with time. Leaves sprayed with different glyphosate rates showed some separability 24 HAT using the new features and could be totally distinguished at and beyond 48 HAT for both soybean and cotton. These findings demonstrated the feasibility of applying leaf hyperspectral reflectance measurements for the early detection of glyphosate injury using these newly proposed features.

Foliar levels of macro and micronutrients in glyphosate-tolerant corn submitted to herbicides  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A serial of factors related to development of glyphosate-tolerant corn should be approached and best studied. This work was developed to evaluate foliar levels of N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, B, Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn, besides the grain yield of glyphosate-tolerant corn (DKB390 RR hybrid. An experiment was carried out under field conditions, during the crop year of 2010/2011. A randomized complete block design with four repetitions was used to distribute the treatments in the field. Twelve herbicide treatments were studied: glyphosate (720, 1200 and sequential application of 960 plus 720 g ha-1 of the acid glyphosate equivalent, atrazine (2500 g ha-1, nicosulfuron (60 g ha-1, mesotrione (192 g ha-1, tembotrione (100,8 g ha-1, atrazine plus glyphosate (1000 + 960 g ha-1, atrazine plus nicosulfuron (1000 + 20 g ha-1, atrazine plus mesotrione (1000 + 144 g ha-1 and atrazine plus tembotrione (1000 + 75,6 g ha-1 and one control treatment without herbicide. The glyphosate and mesotrione alone did not cause no visible injury to corn. The other herbicides caused intoxication symptoms classified as light (<5%. The treatments studied did not affect foliar levels of N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, B, Mn and Zn in the corn plants. But, the plants treated with atrazine plus nicosulfuron had more leaf Fe content, and the plants sprayed with glyphosate (in the three doses and atrazine, more accumulation of Cu in the leaf. The Grain yield of corn was reduced with application single of glyphosate (1200 g ha-1, nicosulfuron, tembotrione and with the mixture atrazine plus nicosulfuron.

Agricultural impacts of glyphosate-resistant soybean cultivation in South America.  

Science.gov (United States)

In the 2009/2010 growing season, Brazil was the second largest world soybean producer, followed by Argentina. Glyphosate-resistant soybeans (GRS) are being cultivated in most of the soybean area in South America. Overall, the GRS system is beneficial to the environment when compared to conventional soybean. GRS resulted in a significant shift toward no-tillage practices in Brazil and Argentina, but weed resistance may reduce this trend. Probably the highest agricultural risk in adopting GRS in Brazil and South America is related to weed resistance due to use of glyphosate. Weed species in GRS fields have shifted in Brazil to those that can more successfully withstand glyphosate or to those that avoid the time of its application. Five weed species, in order of importance, Conyza bonariensis (L.) Cronquist, Conyza canadensis (L.) Cronquist, Lolium multiflorum Lam., Digitaria insularis (L.) Mez ex Ekman, and Euphorbia heterophylla L., have evolved resistance to glyphosate in GRS in Brazil. Conyza spp. are the most difficult to control. A glyphosate-resistant biotype of Sorghum halepense L. has evolved in GRS in Argentina and one of D. insularis in Paraguay. The following actions are proposed to minimize weed resistance problem: (a) rotation of GRS with conventional soybeans in order to rotate herbicide modes of action; (b) avoidance of lower than recommended glyphosate rates; (c) keeping soil covered with a crop or legume at intercrop intervals; (d) keeping machinery free of weed seeds; and (d) use of a preplant nonselective herbicide plus residuals to eliminate early weed interference with the crop and to minimize escapes from later applications of glyphosate due to natural resistance of older weeds and/or incomplete glyphosate coverage.

Understanding the combined influence of fine sediment and glyphosate herbicide on stream periphyton communities.  

Science.gov (United States)

Pesticides and deposited fine sediment have independently been associated with changes in relative abundance and species richness in aquatic ecosystems, but the interplay between these two stressors in agricultural streams is poorly understood. A 28-day experiment in outdoor stream mesocosms examined the effects of four levels each of fine sediment coverage (0, 25, 75, 100%) and glyphosate-based herbicide concentration (0, 50, 200, 370 ?g/L) on periphyton communities (algae and bacteria) in a fully factorial, repeated-measures design. Our aims were to determine whether (i) increased levels of sediment and glyphosate had individual and/or additive effects, (ii) increased sediment reduced the toxicity of glyphosate (antagonistic multiple stressor interaction), or (iii) sediment-adsorbed glyphosate prolonged the effects of exposure (synergistic interaction). We also assigned all algal taxa to three ecological guilds (low-profile, high-profile and motile growth forms) and separately determined their responses to the treatments. As individual stressors, sediment addition affected all algal community-level metrics, whereas glyphosate addition only affected algal community evenness. Bacterial taxon richness was unaffected by either stressor. In combination, however, significant overall sediment by glyphosate interactions were detected, demonstrating synergistic (algal evenness, high-profile and motile guilds) or antagonistic effects (low-profile guild). Our experiment underscores the importance of considering both structural and functional indicators, including algal guild representation, when assessing the mechanisms by which periphyton communities respond to multiple stressors.

Full Text Available Auxyn type herbicides such as dicamba and 2,4-D are alternative herbicides that can be used to control glyphosate-resistant hairy fleabane. With the forthcoming possibility of releasing dicamba-resistant and 2,4-D-resistant crops, use of these growth regulator herbicides will likely be an alternative that can be applied to the control of glyphosate resistant hairy fleabane (Conyza bonariensis. The objective of this research was to model the efficacy, through dose-response curves, of glyphosate, 2,4-D, isolated dicamba and glyphosatedicamba combinations to control a brazilian hairy fleabane population resistant to glyphosate. The greenhouse dose-response studies were conducted as a completely randomized experimental design, and the rates used for dose response curve construction were 0, 120, 240, 480, 720 and 960 g a.i. ha-1 for 2,4-D, dicamba and the dicamba combination, with glyphosate at 540 g a.e. ha-1. The rates for glyphosate alone were 0, 180, 360, 540, 720 and 960 g a.e. ha-1. Herbicides were applied when the plants were in a vegetative stage with 10 to 12 leaves and height between 12 and 15 cm. Hairy fleabane had low sensitivity to glyphosate, with poor control even at the 960 g a.e. ha-1 rate. Dicamba and 2,4-D were effective in controlling the studied hairy fleabane. Hairy fleabane responds differently to 2,4-D and dicamba. The combination of glyphosate and dicamba was not antagonistic to hairy fleabane control, and glyphosate may cause an additive effect on the control, despite the population resistance.Os herbicidas mimetizadores de auxinas como dicamba e 2,4-D são alternativas para o controle de buva resistente ao glyphosate.

Full Text Available A pesar de los avances logrados en el control de las malezas con el uso de herbicidas, el manejo de las mismas no se simplificó, sino que, al contrario, surgieron nuevos desafíos, como la aparición de resistencia a herbicidas. En 2007, se reportó en Lolium multiflorum el segundo caso de resistencia a glifosato detectado en Argentina. En el sudeste de la provincia de Buenos Aires se registraron fallas de control a campo en poblaciones de Lolium multiflorum debido a su resistencia a distintos herbicidas de las familias de los inhibidores de ALS y de ACCasa y al herbicida glifosato. El objetivo de este estudio fue caracterizar el nivel de resistencia a ciertos herbicidas inhibidores de la ALS y de la ACCasa y al glifosato en una población de L. multiflorum de Lobería (Bs As, Argentina supuestamente resistente (LmR. Se realizaron bioensayos en cajas de Petri y se determinó la GR50 mediante la variación en la longitud de coleoptile. Las curvas de dosis-respuesta se obtuvieron por medio de la ecuación log-logística. El biotipo LmR presentó resistencia múltiple a herbicidas con tres modos de acción diferentes: glifosato, inhibidores de ALS y de ACCasa. Dicho ensayo demostró la aparición de un biotipo de L. multiflorum con resistencia a múltiples principios activos.Despite progress in weed control using herbicides, management has not been simplified, but new challenges such as herbicides resistance have arisen. In 2007, a Lolium multiflorum population resistant to glyphosate was reported, as the second case of glyphosate resistant weeds in Argentina. In the southeast of Buenos Aires province, control failures in populations of L. multiflorum to different families of herbicide such as ALS and ACCase inhibitors and to glyphosate at field level have been registered. The aim of this study was to characterize the level of resistance to certain herbicides inhibitors of ALS, ACCase and glyphosate in a putatively resistant (LmR population of L. multiflorum of Loberia (Buenos Aires, Argentina. Bioassays were conducted in Petri dishes and the GR50 was determined by the length of coleoptile. Curves dose-response were obtained using the log-logistic equation. The LmR biotype survived under multiple herbicides of three different modes of action, glyphosate, ALS and ACCase inhibitors. This test showed the appearance of a biotype of L. multiflorum with resistance to multiple active ingredients.

Identification of regulated genes conferring resistance to high concentrations of glyphosate in a new strain of Enterobacter.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is a widely used herbicide that inhibits 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) activity. Most plants and microbes are sensitive to glyphosate. However, transgenic-resistant crops that contain a modified epsps obtained from the resistant microbes have been commercially successful and therefore, new resistance genes and their adaptive regulatory mechanisms are of great interest. In this study, a soil-borne, glyphosate-resistant bacterium was selected and identified as Enterobacter. The EPSPS in this strain was found to have been altered to a resistant one. A total of 42 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the glyphosate were screened using microarray techniques. Under treatment, argF, sdhA, ivbL, rrfA-H were downregulated, whereas the transcripts of speA, osmY, pflB, ahpC, fusA, deoA, uxaC, rpoD and a few ribosomal protein genes were upregulated. Data were verified by quantitative real-time PCR on selected genes. All transcriptional changes appeared to protect the bacteria from glyphosate and associated osmotic, acidic and oxidative stresses. Many DEGs may have the potential to confer resistance to glyphosate alone, and some may be closely related to the shikimate pathway, reflecting the complex gene interaction network for glyphosate resistance.

Buva (Conyza bonariensis resistente ao glyphosate na região sul do Brasil Conyza bonariensis biotypes resistant to the glyphosate in southern Brazil  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O glyphosate é um herbicida não-seletivo utilizado para controlar plantas daninhas há mais de 20 anos no Rio Grande do Sul. A buva (Conyza bonariensis é uma espécie daninha comum nos Estados da região Sul do Brasil e tradicionalmente controlada com uso de glyphosate. Entretanto, nos últimos anos plantas de buva têm apresentado poucos sintomas de toxicidade em resposta ao tratamento com glyphosate, sugerindo que estas plantas são resistentes ao herbicida. Assim, com o objetivo de avaliar a resposta de uma população de plantas de buva a glyphosate, foram realizados três experimentos: um em campo e dois em casa de vegetação. No experimento em campo, os tratamentos avaliados constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440, 2.880 e 5.760 g ha-1, e os herbicidas paraquat (400 g ha-1 e 2,4-D (1.005 g ha-1 foram empregados como produtos testemunhas, com diferentes mecanismos de ação nas plantas. No experimento em casa de vegetação os tratamentos constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440, 2.880 e 5.760 g ha-1, mais os herbicidas testemunhas, aplicados sobre plantas de um biótipo considerado resistente e de outro considerado sensível. No segundo experimento realizado em casa de vegetação, foram avaliados os tratamentos contendo glyphosate (720, 1.440 e 2.880 g ha-1, mais os herbicidas chlorimuron-ethyl (40 g ha-1, metsulfuron-methyl (4 g ha-1, 2,4-D (1.005 g ha-1, paraquat (400 g ha-1 e diuron + paraquat (200 + 400 g ha-1, bem como a testemunha sem tratamento herbicida. A toxicidade dos tratamentos herbicidas foi avaliada aos 7, 15 e 30 DAT (dias após tratamento. Os resultados obtidos nos experimentos em condições de campo e em casa de vegetação, de forma geral, evidenciam que o biótipo sensível é controlado pelo glyphosate e pelos demais herbicidas avaliados. Demonstram ainda que o biótipo resistente apresenta-se, igualmente ao biótipo sensível, altamente suscetível aos herbicidas com mecanismo de ação distinto daquele do glyphosate. Entretanto, o biótipo resistente mostra baixa resposta ao herbicida glyphosate, mesmo se este for empregado em doses elevadas, evidenciando ter adquirido resistência a esse produto.Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide used for over 20 years to control weeds in Rio Grande do Sul. Horseweed (Conyza bonariensis is a common weed in Rio Grande do Sul and traditionally sensitive to glyphosate. However, during the last years, some horseweed plants have not shown significant injury symptoms after treatment with glyphosate, suggesting that they are resistant to this herbicide. Aiming to evaluate the response of a population of horseweed plants to glyphosate, one field and two greenhouse experiments were carried out. The field experiment treatment had increasing rates of glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1,440, 2,880 and 5,760 g ha-1, and also the herbicides paraquat and 2,4-D as standards. The greenhouse experiments had increasing rates of glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1,440, 2,880 and 5,760 g ha-1 plus the above listed check herbicides sprayed on biotypes considered resistant and on plants of one susceptible biotype. In the second greenhouse experiment, the treatments were increasing rates of glyphosate (720, 1,440 and 2,880 g ha-1 and herbicides chlorimuron-ethyl, metsulfuron-methyl, 2,4-D, paraquat and diuron + paraquat sprayed on plants of resistant and susceptible biotypes. Horseweed control was accessed at 7, 15 and 30 DAT (days after treatment. Overall results of the field and greenhouse experiments provided evidence that the susceptible biotype is easily controlled by glyphosate and the other tested herbicides. In addition, the results demonstrated that the resistant biotype, as the susceptible biotype, is highly sensitive to herbicides with mode of action that differs from glyphosate. However, the resistant biotype showed low response to glyphosate, even at very high rates, confirming resistance of this horseweed population to glyphosate.

Residual herbicides in weed management for glyphosate-resistant soybean in Brazil / Herbicidas residuais em manejo de plantas daninhas na soja resistente ao glyphosate no Brasil  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Em sistemas de produção agrícola onde a cultura da soja tolerante ao glyphosate (Glycine max) está inserida e onde não há a prática de rotação de culturas com herbicidas alternativos, o uso exclusivo e contínuo do glyphosate tem levado ao surgimento de populações de plantas daninhas resistentes, que [...] podem limitar ou comprometer os benefícios dessa tecnologia. Nesse sentido, a eficiência de programas de manejo que envolvem herbicidas residuais (sulfentrazone, flumioxazin, imazethapyr, diclosulam, chlorimuron e s-metolachlor) aplicados na pré-emergência seguidos de glyphosate na pós-emergência da cultura (PRE-POST) foi comparada à de programas com apenas glyphosate na pós-emergência ? POST. O estudo constituiu-se de nove experimentos realizados durante as safras agrícolas 2009/2010 e 2010/2011. Os programas PRE-POST foram eficientes no controle de Amaranthus viridis, Brachiaria plantaginea, Bidens pilosa, Commelina benghalensis, Eleusine indica, Euphorbia heterophylla e Raphanus raphanistrum, sendo semelhantes aos níveis de controle do programa com duas aplicações de glyphosate POST. Alguns programas PRE-POST não foram eficientes para Cenchrus echinatus, Ipomoea hederifolia e Ipomoea triloba. Sulfentrazone e diclosulam PRE-POST melhoraram o controle de Ipomoea triloba em relação às aplicações sequenciais de glyphosate. Quanto à produtividade, não foram observadas diferenças significativas entre os tratamentos herbicidas. As aplicações de herbicidas residuais em pré-emergência seguidos da aplicação de glyphosate em pós-emergência resultam em controles consistentes de plantas daninhas e evitam a competição inicial. Além disso, estes programas utilizam pelo menos dois modos de ação que contribuem para a diversidade do uso de herbicidas que será necessária para ficar à frente de novos casos de resistência, independentemente de quando as plantas daninhas possam aparecer. Abstract in english In agricultural production systems where the glyphosate-resistant soybean crop (Glycine max) is grown and the practice of crop rotation with alternative herbicides is not adopted, the exclusive and continuous use of glyphosate has led to the occurrence of resistant weed populations that may limit or [...] compromise the benefits of this technology. Thus, the efficacy of weed management programs, including the use of residual herbicides (sulfentrazone, flumioxazin, imazethapyr, diclosulan, chlorimuron and s-metolachlor) applied in preemergence and followed by in-crop postemergence applications of glyphosate (PRE-POST) were compared to glyphosate postemergence only programs - POST. The study was conducted across nine locations during the 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 growing seasons. PRE-POST programs were efficient in the control of Amaranthus viridis, Brachiaria plantaginea, Bidens pilosa, Commelina benghalensis, Eleusine indica, Euphorbia heterophylla and Raphanus raphanistrum, with the level of control being similar when comparing the program with two applications of glyphosate POST. Some PRE-POST programs were not efficient in controlling Cenchrus echinatus, Ipomoea hederifolia and Ipomoea triloba. Sulfentrazone and diclosulam PRE-POST programs improved the control of Ipomoea triloba compared to sequential applications of glyphosate alone. No significant differences in soybean yield were observed between any of the herbicide treatments or study locations. The use of residual herbicides in preemergence followed by glyphosate in-crop postemergence provides consistent weed control and reducing early season weed competition. Furthermore, these programs utilize at least two herbicide modes of action for herbicide use diversity, which will be needed to stay ahead of resistance build-up, regardless of when weeds may appear.

Adjoint design sensitivity analysis of reduced atomic systems using generalized Langevin equation for lattice structures  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

An efficient adjoint design sensitivity analysis method is developed for reduced atomic systems. A reduced atomic system and the adjoint system are constructed in a locally confined region, utilizing generalized Langevin equation (GLE) for periodic lattice structures. Due to the translational symmetry of lattice structures, the size of time history kernel function that accounts for the boundary effects of the reduced atomic systems could be reduced to a single atom’s degrees of freedom. For the problems of highly nonlinear design variables, the finite difference method is impractical for its inefficiency and inaccuracy. However, the adjoint method is very efficient regardless of the number of design variables since one additional time integration is required for the adjoint GLE. Through numerical examples, the derived adjoint sensitivity turns out to be accurate and efficient through the comparison with finite difference sensitivity

Efeitos da chuva na eficiência de formulações e doses de glyphosate no controle de Brachiaria decumbens Rainfall effects on glyphosate formulation and rate the efficiency to control of Brachiaria decumbens  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi de avaliar os efeitos de doses das formulações de glyphosate - amônio, isopropilamina e potássico - sobre o controle de plantas de Brachiaria decumbens, em condições controladas, quando submetidas à chuva com intensidade de 20 mm e durante 30 minutos, em intervalos de 1, 2, 4, 6, 12 e 24 horas após aplicação dos tratamentos herbicidas. A ocorrência de chuvas após a aplicação de glyphosate reduziu o controle de B. decumbens, e essa redução foi maior com a diminuição do intervalo sem chuva após a aplicação. As aplicações das formulações de glyphosate potássico e isopropilamina resultaram em maior controle da B. decumbens que a formulação de glyphosate amônico. Esse efeito foi também observado no acúmulo de matéria seca da rebrota da planta daninha, avaliada aos 19 dias após o corte da parte aérea das plantas. Foram necessários intervalos de pelo menos 8, 11 e 12 horas sem chuva após aplicação, respectivamente para glyphosate potássico, isopropilamina e amônio, na dose de 1.440 g ha-1, para obter controle maior que 80%. Na dose de 2.160 g ha-1 necessitou-se de intervalos de pelo menos 5, 7 e 9 horas sem chuva, respectivamente para as formulações de glyphosate potássico, isopropilamina e amônio, para proporcionar o mesmo controle de B. decumbens. Na avaliação da matéria seca acumulada na rebrota, o glyphosate potássico proporcionou controle excelente da espécie (rebrota menor do que 5% a partir de quatro e cinco horas sem chuva após aplicação, respectivamente nas duas maiores doses (2.160 e 1.440 g ha-1. No caso do glyphosate isopropilamina, nas doses de 2.160 e 1.440 g ha-1, o mesmo controle foi obtido a partir de 7 e 12 horas sem chuva, respectivamente. Concluiu-se que as formulações glyphosate potássico e isopropilamina são menos afetadas pela ocorrência de chuva após a aplicação e demandam menor intervalo livre de chuva do que o glyphosate amônio.The objective of this study was to evaluate the dose effects the glyphosate formulations - ammonium, isopropylamine and potassic - on Brachiaria decumbens plant control, under controlled conditions, when submitted to 20 mm of rainfall intensity for 30 minutes, at intervals of 1, 2, 4, 6, 12 and 24 hours after application of the herbicide treatments. Rainfall events after glyphosate application reduced the control of B. decumbens and this reduction was higher as the rainfall event was closer to the herbicide application. Potassic and isopropylamine glyphosate formulations showed a higher control of B. decumbens than ammonium glyphosate formulation. This effect was also observed on the dry biomass accumulation of B. decumbens regrowth, which was evaluated at 19 days after excising the plantshoot. At least 8, 11 and 12 hours after glyphosate application without rainfall were required, respectively, for potassic, isopropylamine and ammonium glyphosate at the dose of 1,440 g ha-1, to obtain a control over 80%; however, for the rate of 2,160 g ha-1, intervals required were 5, 7, and 9 hours, at least, respectively, to obtain the same control of B. decumbens. Dry biomass accumulation oduring weed regrowth was lower than 5%, providing an excellent control of the weed when four to five hours without rainfall occurred after herbicide application at the highest two doses (2,160 and 1,440 g ha-1. For isopropylamine glyphosate at the doses of 2,160 and 1,440 g ha-1, the same control was obtained from 7 and 12 hours without rainfall, respectively. It was concluded that both the potassic and isopropylamine glyphosate formulations are less affected by rainfall events after herbicide application, tolerating rainfall in a shorter interval after herbicide application than ammonium glyphosate.

Glyphosate-Degrading Microorganisms from Industrial Activated Sludge  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

A plating medium was developed to isolate N-phosphonomethylglycine (glyphosate)-degrading microorganisms, with glyphosate as the sole phosphorus source. Two industrial biosystems treating glyphosate wastes contained elevated microbial counts on the medium. One purified isolate metabolized glyphosate to aminomethylphosphonic acid, mineralizing this accumulating intermediate during log growth. This microorganism has been identified as a Flavobacterium species.

Occurrence of glyphosate in water bodies derived from intensive agriculture in a tropical region of southern Mexico.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is an agrochemical widely used to control weeds. However, glyphosate spreads to water bodies by spray-drift, run-off and leaching, potentially causing detrimental effects on non-target biota. There is no information on the occurrence of this herbicide in water bodies near crop fields in Mexico, although it is the most commonly used pesticide in this country. To fill this gap, we quantified glyphosate in water bodies from twenty-three locations, including natural protected areas and agricultural areas in southern Mexico, during the dry and the rainy seasons. We expected (1) higher concentrations during the dry season due to reduced dilution by precipitation and, (2) absence of glyphosate in the protected areas. In agreement with our expectation, concentration of glyphosate was higher during the dry season (up to 36.7 ?g/L). Nonetheless, glyphosate was detected in all samples-including natural protected areas. These results emphasize the need for an evaluation of the impact of glyphosate on native species as well as regulate its use. PMID:25011503

Expression of an evolved engineered variant of a bacterial glycine oxidase leads to glyphosate resistance in alfalfa.  

Science.gov (United States)

The main strategy for resistance to the herbicide glyphosate in plants is the overexpression of an herbicide insensitive, bacterial 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS). A glyphosate resistance strategy based on the ability to degrade the herbicide can be useful to reduce glyphosate phytotoxicity to the crops. Here we present the characterization of glyphosate resistance in transgenic alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) expressing a plant-optimized variant of glycine oxidase (GO) from Bacillus subtilis, evolved in vitro by a protein engineering approach to efficiently degrade glyphosate. Two constructs were used, one with (GO(TP+)) and one without (GO(TP-)) the pea rbcS plastid transit peptide. Molecular and biochemical analyses confirmed the stable integration of the transgene and the correct localization of the plastid-imported GO protein. Transgenic alfalfa plants were tested for glyphosate resistance both in vitro and in vivo. Two GO(TP+) lines showed moderate resistance to the herbicide in both conditions. Optimization of expression of this GO variant may allow to attain sufficient field resistance to glyphosate herbicides, thus providing a resistance strategy based on herbicide degradation.

Influence of glyphosate and its formulation (Roundup[reg]) on the toxicity and bioavailability of metals to Ceriodaphnia dubia  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

This study examined the toxicological interaction between glyphosate (or its formulation, Roundup[reg]) and several heavy metals to a freshwater cladoceran, Ceriodaphnia dubia. We demonstrated that all binary combinations of Roundup[reg] and metals (Cd, Cu, Cr, Ni, Pb, Se and Zn) exhibited 'less than additive' mixture toxicity, with 48-h LC50 toxic unit>1. Addition of glyphosate alone could significantly reduce the acute toxicity of Ag, Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn (but not Hg and Se). The ratio between glyphosate and metal ions was important in determining the mitigation of metal toxicity by glyphosate. A bioaccumulation study showed that in the presence of glyphosate the uptake of some metals (e.g. Ag) was halted but that of others (e.g. Hg) was increased significantly. Therefore, our study strongly suggests that glyphosate and its commercial formulations can control the toxicity as well as the bioavailability of heavy metals in aquatic ecosystems where both groups of chemicals can co-occur. - Glyphosate can control the toxicity and bioavailability of many heavy metals in the aquatic environment

No segundo experimento realizado em casa de vegetação, foram avaliados os tratamentos contendo glyphosate (720, 1.440 e 2.880 g ha-1), mais os herbicidas chlorimuron-ethyl (40 g ha-1), metsulfuron-methyl (4 g ha-1), 2,4-D (1.005 g ha-1), paraquat (400 g ha-1) e diuron + paraquat (200 + 400 g ha-1), bem como a testemunha sem tratamento herbicida. A toxicidade dos tratamentos herbicidas foi avaliada aos 7, 15 e 30 DAT (dias após tratamento). Os resultados obtidos nos experimentos em condições de campo e em casa de vegetação, de forma geral, evidenciam que o biótipo sensível é controlado pelo glyphosate e pelos demais herbicidas avaliados. Demonstram ainda que o biótipo resistente apresenta-se, igualmente ao biótipo sensível, altamente suscetível aos herbicidas com mecanismo de ação distinto daquele do glyphosate. Entretanto, o biótipo resistente mostra baixa resposta ao herbicida glyphosate, mesmo se este for empregado em doses elevadas, evidenciando ter adquirido resistência a esse produto. Abstract in english Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide used for over 20 years to control weeds in Rio Grande do Sul. Horseweed (Conyza bonariensis) is a common weed in Rio Grande do Sul and traditionally sensitive to glyphosate. However, during the last years, some horseweed plants have not shown significant injur [...] y symptoms after treatment with glyphosate, suggesting that they are resistant to this herbicide. Aiming to evaluate the response of a population of horseweed plants to glyphosate, one field and two greenhouse experiments were carried out. The field experiment treatment had increasing rates of glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1,440, 2,880 and 5,760 g ha-1), and also the herbicides paraquat and 2,4-D as standards. The greenhouse experiments had increasing rates of glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1,440, 2,880 and 5,760 g ha-1) plus the above listed check herbicides sprayed on biotypes considered resistant and on plants of one susceptible biotype. In the second greenhouse experiment, the treatments were increasing rates of glyphosate (720, 1,440 and 2,880 g ha-1) and herbicides chlorimuron-ethyl, metsulfuron-methyl, 2,4-D, paraquat and diuron + paraquat sprayed on plants of resistant and susceptible biotypes. Horseweed control was accessed at 7, 15 and 30 DAT (days after treatment). Overall results of the field and greenhouse experiments provided evidence that the susceptible biotype is easily controlled by glyphosate and the other tested herbicides. In addition, the results demonstrated that the resistant biotype, as the susceptible biotype, is highly sensitive to herbicides with mode of action that differs from glyphosate. However, the resistant biotype showed low response to glyphosate, even at very high rates, confirming resistance of this hor

Suscetibilidade de duas Gramas-boiadeiras a diferentes formulações de glyphosate / Susceptibility of Cutgrass and Peruvian Watergrass to different glyphosate formulations  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese A utilização do herbicida glyphosate para o controle químico das espécies de gramas-boiadeiras nas lavouras orizícolas não tem se mostrado eficiente. Nesse contexto, a investigação do controle dessas espécies com o glyphosate torna-se de fundamental importância, uma vez que não estão disponíveis no [...] mercado herbicidas seletivos para o controle dessas em pós-emergência na cultura do arroz irrigado. Em vista do exposto, o objetivo do presente estudo foi avaliar a suscetibilidade das gramas-boiadeiras a diferentes formulações de glyphosate. Foram conduzidos dois experimentos em casa de vegetação em esquema fatorial. No primeiro experimento, o fator A constituiu-se de duas formulações de glyphosate (sal potássico e isopropilamina) e o fator B de nove doses dos herbicidas (zero; 175; 350; 700; 1400; 2800; 5600; 11200; 22400g e.a. ha-1). No segundo experimento, o fator A constituiu-se de duas espécies de gramas-boiadeiras (Leersia hexandra e Luziola peruviana), o fator B de três formulações do glyphosate (sal amônio, potássico e isopropilamina) e o fator C de nove doses dos herbicidas (zero; 87,5; 175; 350; 700; 1400; 2800; 5600; 11200g e.a. ha-1). Com base nos resultados obtidos, foi possível observar que as espécies apresentaram diferença de suscetibilidade ao herbicida glyphosate. Além disso, Leersia hexandra foi mais sensível em comparação a Luziola peruviana. As formulações de glyphosate influenciaram na suscetibilidade das espécies ao controle, sendo que, Roundup Transorb R® e Roundup Ultra® proporcionam melhor controle das espécies de gramas-boiadeiras. Abstract in english The use of glyphosate to chemical control of Cutgrass and Peruvian Watergrass with the use of non-selective herbicides has not been efficient. In this context, the investigation of chemical control of these species to glyphosate is very important, since there are not available commercially selective [...] herbicides to control these species in post-emergence of irrigated rice. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the susceptibility of Cutgrass and Peruvian Watergrass to different formulations of glyphosate. Two factorial experiments were conducted in a greenhouse, in the first the A factor were two formulations of glyhposate (potassium and isopropylamine salt) and the B factor were nine doses of the herbicide (zero; 175; 350; 700; 1400; 2800; 5600; 11200; 22400g a.e. ha-1). In the second experiment, the A factor were two species (Leersia hexandra and Luziola peruviana), the B factor were three formulations of glyphosate (amoniun, potassium e isopropylamine salt) and the C factor were nine doses of herbicides (zero; 87,5; 175; 350; 700; 1400; 2800; 5600; 11200g a.e. ha-1). Based on the results obtained, it was observed that these species exhibit differential susceptibility to glyphosate. Moreover, Leersia hexandra was more sensitive when compared to Luziola peruviana. Glyphosate formulation influenced control efficiency, where Transorb Roundup R® and Roundup Ultra® provided the best control of the two species.

Effect of glyphosate on the sperm quality of zebrafish Danio rerio.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is a systemic, non-selective herbicide widely used in agriculture worldwide. It acts as an inhibitor of the enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase by interrupting the synthesis of essential aromatic amino acids. This pathway is not present in animals, although some studies have shown that the herbicide glyphosate can affect fish reproduction. In this study, the effect of glyphosate on sperm quality of the fish Danio rerio was investigated after 24 and 96 h of exposure at concentrations of 5mg/L and 10mg/L. The spermatic cell concentration, sperm motility and motility period were measured employing conventional microscopy. The mitochondrial functionality, membrane integrity and DNA integrity were measured by fluorescence microscopy using specific probes. No significant differences in sperm concentration were observed; however, sperm motility and the motility period were reduced after exposure to both glyphosate concentrations during both exposure periods. The mitochondrial functionality and membrane and DNA integrity were also reduced at the highest concentration during both exposure periods. The results showed that glyphosate can induce harmful effects on reproductive parameters in D. rerio and that this change would reduce the fertility rate of these animals. PMID:25089920

Gene amplification confers glyphosate resistance in Amaranthus palmeri  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

The herbicide glyphosate became widely used in the United States and other parts of the world after the commercialization of glyphosate-resistant crops. These crops have constitutive overexpression of a glyphosate-insensitive form of the herbicide target site gene, 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS). Increased use of glyphosate over multiple years imposes selective genetic pressure on weed populations. We investigated recently discovered glyphosate-resistant Amaranthus palmer...

Nodulation and mycorrhization of transgenic soybean after glyphosate application  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The sensitivity of nitrogen-fixing bacteria like Bradyrhizobium spp with in relation to glyphosate can be influenced by the concentration of the herbicide. This study aims to evaluate the effects of two formulations of glyphosate, in two application periods, on nodulation and mycorrhization in a soybean of variety RR P98Y11, using greenhouse, in pots with capacity of 4 L with savanna soils. Six treatments were utilized using Roundup Ultra and Roundup Original with one and two applications, witness without herbicide and witness only with mineral nitrogen, in a completely randomized design. Four evaluations were done, every 15 days, to determine the plant height, shoot and root dry weight, number of nodules, nodule dry weigh and mycorrhizae. It was observed an increase on the number of nodules, with the use of Roundup Ultra until 15 days after the first application. After this period, the witness only with inoculants showed a larger number of nodules. Roundup Ultra had positive influences on the dry weight of nodules, regardless the number of applications. There was no influence of glyphosate formulation considering the mycorrhizal colonization.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese O objetivo do presente trabalho foi o de avaliar os efeitos da utilização de glyphosate e herbicidas imidazolinonas, em aplicações isoladas ou associadas, sobre o controle de arroz-vermelho (Oryza sativa) e produtividade de grãos de arroz Clearfield®. O experimento foi conduzido a campo na safra 200 [...] 7/08, em Cachoeirinha, RS, Brasil, com delineamento em blocos ao acaso e tratamentos dispostos em arranjo fatorial (2x6), usando-se quatro repetições. O fator A constou de dois níveis do herbicida glyphosate, aplicados no subperíodo semeadura-emergência da cultura por ocasião do início da emissão do coleóptilo do arroz (ponto de agulha); o fator B constou de seis tratamentos com imazethapyr+imazapic, aplicados em associação ao glyphosate ou quando a cultura atingiu o estádio de três folhas expandidas. As três variáveis explicativas analisadas foram a população de plantas de arroz e arroz-vermelho, a eficácia do controle de arroz-vermelho e a produtividade de grãos da cultura. O uso de glyphosate no ponto de agulha reduziu em 75% a população do arroz-vermelho e aumentou em 40% a produtividade de grãos de arroz, em relação à testemunha. O uso isolado de herbicidas imidazolinonas e sua associação com o dessecante proporcionou controle eficaz do arroz-vermelho e incrementou a produtividade de grãos, em comparação à situação sem controle da infestante, independente da dose e do sistema de aplicação. Abstract in english The objective of this research was to evaluate the effects of the utilization of glyphosate and imidazolinones herbicides, in isolated or associated applications, on the effectiveness of red rice (Oryza sativa) control and grain yield of Clearfield-rice. The experiment was conducted under field cond [...] itions in 2007/08, in Cachoeirinha, RS, Brazil, using a randomized block design in a two-factorial design 2x6, with four replicates. The factor A was composed by two levels of glyphosate, applied during the subperiod between sowing and crop emergence at the early coleoptile stage of the rice plants; and the factor B consisted of six treatments with imazethapyr+imazapic, applied in association with glyphosate or when the rice crop plants had three expanded leaves. The crop and weed populations, red rice control and grain yield of crop were evaluated. The results show that the glyphosate application at the early coleoptile stage of the crop reduced 75% the red rice population and increased 40% the grain yield, in relation to the situation without weed control. The use of imidazolinones and their association with glyphosate provided effective control of red rice and increased the grain yield, independent of rates and application system.

Glyphosate influence on the physiological parameters of Conyza bonariensis biotypes / Influência de glyphosate em parâmetros fisiológicos de biótipos de Conyza bonariensis  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Objetivou-se neste trabalho determinar alterações na fotossíntese e na inibição da EPSPs, com base no acúmulo de ácido chiquímico, em biótipos de buva resistente e suscetível ao glyphosate. Foram realizados dois experimentos, conduzidos em esquema bifatorial. No primeiro, avaliaram-se biótipos de bu [...] va (um resistente e outro suscetível ao glyphosate) e doses do herbicida (0 e 1.080ge.a.ha-1) aplicadas sobre a planta daninha. No segundo experimento, os biótipos de buva (resistente e suscetível ao glyphosate) foram avaliados em cinco épocas: 0, 3, 7, 10 e 14 dias após a aplicação do herbicida (DAH). Foram efetuadas determinações da taxa fotossintética, transpiração, eficiência da carboxilação e uso eficiente da água, empregando analisador de gases no infravermelho (IRGA), e a concentração de ácido chiquímico, determinada por HPLC. A aplicação do glyphosate afetou negativamente os parâmetros fotossintéticos do biótipo suscetível, causando total inibição da taxa fotossintética, da taxa transpiratória, da eficiência da carboxilação e da eficiência do uso da água, a partir dos 7DAH. Já para o biótipo resistente, não se observou total inibição dos parâmetros fotossintéticos. Em ambos os biótipos ocorreu acúmulo de ácido chiquímico após aplicação de glyphosate; contudo, o biótipo suscetível apresentou as maiores concentrações, indicando maior sensibilidade da enzima EPSPs. O acúmulo de ácido chiquímico no biótipo resistente indica que o mecanismo de resistência não está relacionado somente com a insensibilidade da EPSPs ao glyphosate e/ou que outros mecanismos de resistência podem estar envolvidos. Abstract in english The objective of this study was to determine changes in gas exchange and inhibition of EPSPs, based on the accumulation of shikimic acid in horseweed biotypes resistant and sensitive to glyphosate. Two experiments were conducted in a factorial model. The first one evaluated horseweed biotypes (one r [...] esistant and one susceptible to glyphosate), and herbicide rates (0 and 1,080 g a.e. ha ¹) applied on the weed. In the second experiment, the horseweed biotypes (susceptible and resistant to glyphosate) were evaluated in five periods as following: 0, 3, 7, 10, and 14 days after herbicide application (DAH). The photosynthetic rate, transpiration, carboxylation efficiency, and water efficiency were determined using an infrared gas analyzer (IRGA), and shikimic acid concentration by HPLC. The application of glyphosate damaged the photosynthetic parameters of the susceptible biotype, causing complete inhibition of the photosynthetic rate, transpiration rate, carboxylation efficiency and water use efficiency, starting from the 7 DAH. On the other hand, total inhibition of the photosynthetic parameters was not observed for the resistant biotype. Shikimic acid accumulation occurred in both biotypes after glyphosate application but the susceptible biotype had the highest concentrations, indicating greater sensitivity of the enzyme EPSPs. The accumulation of shikimic acid in the resistant biotype indicates that the mechanism of resistance is not related to the total insensitivity of the enzyme EPSPs to glyphosate and/or that other resistance mechanisms may be involved.

The use of environmental metabolomics to determine glyphosate level of exposure in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.) seedlings  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Metabolic profiling in plants can be used to differentiate between treatments and to search for biomarkers for exposure. A methodology for processing Ultra-High-Performance Liquid Chromatography-Diode-Array-Detection data is devised. This methodology includes a scheme for selecting informative wavelengths, baseline removal, retention time alignment, selection of relevant retention times, and principal component analysis (PCA). Plant crude extracts from rapeseed seedling exposed to sublethal concentrations of glyphosate are used as a study case. Through this approach, plants exposed to concentrations down to 5 ?M could be distinguished from the controls. The compounds responsible for this differentiation were partially identified and were different from those specific for high exposure samples, which suggests that two different responses to glyphosate are elicited in rapeseed depending on the level of exposure. The PCA loadings indicate that a combination of other metabolites could be more sensitive than the response of shikimate to detect glyphosate exposure. - Highlights: ? A method for processing UHPLC-DAD data for plant metabolic profiling is devised. ? The metabolic profiling approach is more sensitive to glyphosate exposure than shikimate. ?

Structural basis of glyphosate resistance resulting from the double mutation Thr97 -> Ile and Pro101 -> Ser in 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase from Escherichia coli.  

Science.gov (United States)

The shikimate pathway enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) is the target of the broad spectrum herbicide glyphosate. The genetic engineering of EPSPS led to the introduction of glyphosate-resistant crops worldwide. The genetically engineered corn lines NK603 and GA21 carry distinct EPSPS enzymes. CP4 EPSPS, expressed in NK603 corn and transgenic soybean, cotton, and canola, belongs to class II EPSPS, glyphosate-insensitive variants of this enzyme isolated from certain Gram-positive bacteria. GA21 corn, on the other hand, was created by point mutations of class I EPSPS, such as the enzymes from Zea mays or Escherichia coli, which are sensitive to low glyphosate concentrations. The structural basis of the glyphosate resistance resulting from these point mutations has remained obscure. We studied the kinetic and structural effects of the T97I/P101S double mutation, the molecular basis for GA21 corn, using EPSPS from E. coli. The T97I/P101S enzyme is essentially insensitive to glyphosate (K(i) = 2.4 mm) but maintains high affinity for the substrate phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) (K(m) = 0.1 mm). The crystal structure at 1.7-A resolution revealed that the dual mutation causes a shift of residue Gly(96) toward the glyphosate binding site, impairing efficient binding of glyphosate, while the side chain of Ile(97) points away from the substrate binding site, facilitating PEP utilization. The single site T97I mutation renders the enzyme sensitive to glyphosate and causes a substantial decrease in the affinity for PEP. Thus, only the concomitant mutations of Thr(97) and Pro(101) induce the conformational changes necessary to produce catalytically efficient, glyphosate-resistant class I EPSPS. PMID:19211556

Full Text Available Após sucessivos anos, aplicações do herbicida glyphosate em pomares de citros no Estado de São Paulo selecionaram biótipos resistentes de Conyza bonariensis e C. canadensis. Na ocorrência de plantas daninhas resistentes em uma área agrícola, tornam-se necessárias mudanças nas práticas de manejo para obtenção de adequado controle das populações resistentes, bem como para a redução da pressão de seleção sobre outras espécies. Assim, este trabalho foi realizado com o objetivo de identificar herbicidas alternativos para controle de biótipos de Conyza spp. resistentes ao herbicida glyphosate, com aplicações em diferentes estádios fenológicos da planta daninha. Três experimentos foram conduzidos em campo, em pomares de citros em formação, sobre plantas de buva em estádio fenológico de dez folhas e no pré-florescimento. Para plantas no estádio de dez folhas, controle satisfatório foi obtido com aplicações de glyphosate + bromacil + diuron (1.440 + 1.200 + 1.200 g ha-1, glyphosate + atrazina (1.440 + 1.500 g ha-1 e glyphosate + diuron (1.440 + 1.500 g ha-1. Quando em estádio de pré-florescimento de Conyza spp., a aplicação do herbicida amônio-glufosinato, na dose de 400 g ha-1, isolado ou associado a MSMA, bromacil+diuron, metsulfuron, carfentrazone e paraquat, foi a alternativa viável para controle dos biótipos resistentes ao glyphosate.After successive years, glyphosate applications on São Paulo-Brazil citrus orchards selected resistant biotypes of Conyza bonariensis and C. canadensis. The occurrence of herbicide-resistant weed biotypes at some agricultural area makes it necessary to change the management practices to reach effective control of the selected resistant populations, as well as to reduce selection pressure on the other species. Thus, this work aimed to identify the alternative herbicides to control glyphosate-resistant biotypes of Conyza spp., with applications at different weed phenological stages. Three trials were developed under field conditions: in citrus orchards under formation, in plants with phenological stages of ten leaves and at pre-flowering. For plants at the ten leaf stage, satisfactory control was reached with applications of glyphosate + bromacil + diuron (1,440 + 1,200 + 1,200 g ha-1, glyphosate + atrazine (1,440 + 1,500 g ha-1 and glyphosate + diuron (1,440 + 1,500 g ha-1. For Conyza spp. plants at the pre-flowering stage, ammonium-glufosinate application, at the rate of 400 g ha-1, isolated or associated to MSMA, bromacil+diuron, metsulfuron, carfentrazone and paraquat, was a viable alternative to control glyphosate-resistant biotypes.

Abstract in english After successive years, glyphosate applications on São Paulo-Brazil citrus orchards selected resistant biotypes of Conyza bonariensis and C. canadensis. The occurrence of herbicide-resistant weed biotypes at some agricultural area makes it necessary to change the management practices to reach effect [...] ive control of the selected resistant populations, as well as to reduce selection pressure on the other species. Thus, this work aimed to identify the alternative herbicides to control glyphosate-resistant biotypes of Conyza spp., with applications at different weed phenological stages. Three trials were developed under field conditions: in citrus orchards under formation, in plants with phenological stages of ten leaves and at pre-flowering. For plants at the ten leaf stage, satisfactory control was reached with applications of glyphosate + bromacil + diuron (1,440 + 1,200 + 1,200 g ha-1), glyphosate + atrazine (1,440 + 1,500 g ha-1) and glyphosate + diuron (1,440 + 1,500 g ha-1). For Conyza spp. plants at the pre-flowering stage, ammonium-glufosinate application, at the rate of 400 g ha-1, isolated or associated to MSMA, bromacil+diuron, metsulfuron, carfentrazone and paraquat, was a viable alternative to control glyphosate-resistant biotypes.

A red and far-red light receptor mutation confers resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is a widely applied broad-spectrum systemic herbicide that inhibits competitively the penultimate enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) from the shikimate pathway, thereby causing deleterious effects. A glyphosate-resistant Arabidopsis mutant (gre1) was isolated and genetic analyses indicated that a dysfunctional red (R) and far-red (FR) light receptor, phytochrome B (phyB), caused this phenotype. This finding is consistent with increased glyphosate sensitivity and glyphosate-induced shikimate accumulation in low R:FR light, and the induction of genes encoding enzymes of the shikimate pathway in high R:FR light. Expression of the shikimate pathway genes exhibited diurnal oscillation and this oscillation was altered in the phyB mutant. Furthermore, transcript analysis suggested that this diurnal oscillation was not only dependent on phyB but was also due to circadian regulatory mechanisms. Our data offer an explanation of the well documented observation that glyphosate treatment at various times throughout the day, with their specific composition of light quality and intensity, results in different efficiencies of the herbicide.

Soybean plant responses to glyphosate and manganese in glyphosate-resistant production systems  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Glyphosate-resistant (GR) soybean is widely accepted in the United States. Recent research in Indiana and elsewhere has observed that post-emergence foliar applications of glyphosate may cause or exacerbate manganese (Mn) deficiency and then limit yield of GR soybeans on low Mn availability soils. The objectives of this study were to: (1) determine responses of GR soybeans to glyphosate application when supplemental Mn is and is not applied, (2) determine the effectiveness of starter-banded a...

Reduced order techniques for sensitivity analysis and design optimization of aerospace systems  

Science.gov (United States)

This work proposes a new method for using reduced order models in lieu of high fidelity analysis during the sensitivity analysis step of gradient based design optimization. The method offers a reduction in the computational cost of finite difference based sensitivity analysis in that context. The method relies on interpolating reduced order models which are based on proper orthogonal decomposition. The interpolation process is performed using radial basis functions and Grassmann manifold projection. It does not require additional high fidelity analyses to interpolate a reduced order model for new points in the design space. The interpolated models are used specifically for points in the finite difference stencil during sensitivity analysis. The proposed method is applied to an airfoil shape optimization (ASO) problem and a transport wing optimization (TWO) problem. The errors associated with the reduced order models themselves as well as the gradients calculated from them are evaluated. The effects of the method on the overall optimization path, computation times, and function counts are also examined. The ASO results indicate that the proposed scheme is a viable method for reducing the computational cost of these optimizations. They also indicate that the adaptive step is an effective method of improving interpolated gradient accuracy. The TWO results indicate that the interpolation accuracy can have a strong impact on optimization search direction.

Effect of the herbicides terbuthylazine and glyphosate on photosystem II photochemistry of young olive (Olea europaea) plants.  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this study was to understand the effect produced by the addition of the herbicides terbuthylazine (N(2)-tert-butyl-6-chloro-N(4)-ethyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine) and glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) on photosystem II photochemistry of young plants of Olea europaea L. under greenhouse conditions. The effect of soil amendment with an organic residue from olive oil production was also assessed. Terbuthylazine reduced the efficiency of photosystem II photochemistry of plants due to chronic photoinhibition, and this effect was counterbalanced by soil amendment with the organic waste, whereas the photosystem II photochemistry of olive plants was not affected by glyphosate or by glyphosate and organic waste addition. In this study, we have shown that the soil application of terbuthylazine is a source of indirect phytotoxicity for olive plants. We have also observed that the olive plants were not affected by higher amounts of glyphosate in the soil. PMID:21517077

Identificação de biótipos de azevém (Lolium multiflorum resistentes ao herbicida glyphosate em pomares de maçã Identification of glyphosate-resistant ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum biotypes in apple orchards  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O glyphosate é um herbicida de amplo espectro utilizado há mais de 15 anos em pomares de maçã na região de Vacaria-RS, para manejo da vegetação nas linhas da cultura. São realizadas, em geral, três a quatro aplicações por ciclo e a dose normalmente utilizada é de 720 a 1.080 g e.a. ha-1 de glyphosate (2 a 3 L ha-1 do produto comercial. O azevém (Lolium multiflorum é uma planta daninha comum em pomares e, tradicionalmente, sensível ao glyphosate. Entretanto, nos últimos anos a ocorrência de plantas de azevém que, após receberem o tratamento com glyphosate, não manifestam sintomas significativos de toxicidade sugere que elas adquiriram resistência ao produto. Assim, com o objetivo de avaliar a resposta de uma população de plantas de azevém ao glyphosate, foram realizados três experimentos: um em campo e dois em casa de vegetação. No experimento em campo os tratamentos avaliados constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440, 2.880, 5.760 e 11.520 g e.a. ha-1, e os herbicidas paraquat, glufosinate, haloxyfop e diclofop foram empregados como produtos-padrão, aplicados em dois estádios vegetativos do azevém. No experimento em casa de vegetação, os tratamentos constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440, 2.880 e 5.760 g e.a. ha-1 mais os herbicidas testemunhas, aplicados sobre plantas do biótipo considerado resistente e de um sensível. No segundo experimento realizado em casa de vegetação foram avaliados tratamentos contendo glyphosate (720, 1.440, 2.880, 720 + 720 e 720 + 1.440 g e.a. ha-1, em aplicações únicas e seqüenciais, mais os herbicidas paraquat, glufosinate, haloxyfop, clethodim, sethoxydim, diclofop, fenoxaprop, fluazifop, paraquat + diuron, atrazine + simazine, trifluralin e metolachlor. A toxicidade dos tratamentos herbicidas foi avaliada aos 15, 30 e 45 DAT (dias após tratamento. Os resultados obtidos nos experimentos em campo e em casa de vegetação, de forma geral, evidenciam que o biótipo sensível é facilmente controlado com o herbicida glyphosate e pelos demais herbicidas pós-emergentes avaliados, independentemente do estádio vegetativo. Demonstram, ainda, que o biótipo resistente apresenta-se, igualmente ao biótipo sensível, altamente suscetível aos herbicidas com mecanismo de ação distinto daquele do glyphosate. No entanto, o biótipo resistente apresenta baixa resposta ao herbicida glyphosate, mesmo se este for empregado em altas doses, evidenciando ter adquirido resistência a esse produto.Glyphosate is a wide spectrum herbicide used for over 15 years in apple orchards in Vacaria-RS for weed control in rows of trees. Usually, 3 to 4 applications per year are made at a rate of 720 to 1080 g a.e. glyphosate ha-1 (2 to 3 L ha-1 of commercial product. Ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum is a common weed in orchards and traditionally sensitive to glyphosate. However, in the last years, some ryegrass plants have not been found to show significant toxicity symptoms after treatment with glyphosate, suggesting that they acquired resistance to this product. To evaluate the response of a ryegrass plant population to glyphosate, one field and two greenhouse experiments were carried out. The field experiment treatments had increasing rates of glyphosate (0; 360; 720; 1,440; 2,880; 5,760 and 11,520 g a.e. ha-1, in addition to the herbicides paraquat, glufosinate-ammonium, haloxyfop and diclofop-methyl as standards, sprayed at two different vegetative growth stages of ryegrass. The greenhouse experiments had increasing rates of glyphosate (0; 360; 720; 1,440; 2,880 and 5,760 g a.e. ha-1 plus the above listed check herbicides sprayed on biotypes considered resistant and on plants of one susceptible biotype. In the second greenhouse experiment, glyphosate rates (720; 1,440; 2,880; 720 + 720 and 720 + 1,440 g a.e. ha-1 were sprayed in single and sequential applications, in addition to the herbicides paraquat, glufosinate-ammonium, haloxyfop, clethodim, sethoxydim, diclofop-methyl, fenoxaprop, fluazifop, paraquat + diuron,

Sugarcane tolerance to ratoon eradication with glyphosate determined by physiological responses / Tolerância da soqueira da cana-de-açúcar à erradicação com glyphosate determinada por respostas fisiológicas  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese O presente trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar a tolerância de cultivares de cana-de-açúcar à erradicação de soqueiras com diferentes doses de glyphosate por meio de respostas fisiológicas. Para isso, um ensaio foi desenvolvido no delineamento experimental de blocos ao acaso em esquema fatorial 4 x [...] 4 (cultivares x doses), totalizando 16 tratamentos com quatro repetições. Foram utilizados os cultivares IAC91-5155, IACSP93-3046, IAC86-2480 e IAC87-3396 tratados com as doses de glyphosate 0, 1.920, 2.400, e 2.880gha-1. As variáveis analisadas foram porcentagem de perfilhos mortos, eficiência quântica do FSII (Fv/Fm) e índice SPAD. Há diferenças entre cultivares de cana-de-açúcar quanto à eliminação de perfilhos e a respostas fisiológicas a diferentes doses de glyphosate. A dose de 2.880gha-1 foi a mais eficiente em eliminar perfilhos de cana-de-açúcar. Os cultivares IAC86-2480, IAC87-3396 e IACSP93-3046 foram os mais sensíveis, e o IAC91-5155 tolerou por mais tempo os danos promovidos no aparato fotossintético à dessecação das soqueiras pelo glyphosate. Devido às respostas diferenciadas, manejos distintos devem ser considerados para a eliminação das soqueiras de diferentes cultivares.

The cultivars IAC91-5155, IACSP93-3046, and IAC86-2480 and IAC87-3396 and the glyphosate rates 0 g ha-1; 1,920 g ha-1; 2,400 g ha-1; 2,880 g ha-1 were tested. The variables analyzed were percentage of tiller mortality, quantum efficiency of PSII (Fv/Fm) and SPAD index. The results showed that there are differences among sugarcane cultivars for tiller eradication and for physiological responses with glyphosate different rates. The rate of 2,880 g ha-1 was the most efficient in eliminating sugarcane tillers. The cultivars IAC86-2480, IAC87-3396 and IACSP93-3046 were the most sensitive and the IAC91-5155 tolerated, for a longer period of time, the damage to the photosynthetic apparatus of the ratoons caused by glyphosate desiccation. Due to different responses, different managements should be considered for eliminating ratoons of different cultivars.

ADSORPTION OF GLYPHOSATE AND AMPAIN AGRICULTURAL SOILS  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Immediately after application glyphosate is mostly adsorbed in the upper 2 cm of soils, and is then transported and adsorbed after few days in deeper soil horizons with concomitant increasing content of its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA. This work confirmed previous studies, where Fe-oxides seem to play a major role in the adsorption of glyphosate and AMPA in soils:  the Chernozem featured lower contents of Fed and Feo, with consequently lower adsorption of glyphosate and AMPAas compared with the higher weathered Cambisol and Stagnosol.

Bioassay and Characterization of Several Palmer Amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri Biotypes with Varying Tolerances to Glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The wide distribution of Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri in the southern US became a serious weed control problem prior to the extensive use of glyphosate-resistant crops. Currently glyphosate-resistant populations of Palmer amaranth occur in many areas of this geographic region creating an even more serious threat to crop production. Investigations were undertaken using four biotypes (one glyphosate-sensitive, one resistant from Georgia and two of unknown tolerance from Mississippi of Palmer amaranth to assess bioassay techniques for the rapid detection and level of resistance in populations of this weed. These plants were characterized with respect to chlorophyll, betalain, and protein levels and immunological responses to an antibody of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS the target site of glyphosate. Only slight differences were found in four biotypes grown under greenhouse conditions regarding extractable soluble protein and chlorophyll content, but one biotype was found to be devoid of the red pigment, betalain. Measurement of early growth (seedling shoot elongation of seedlings was a useful detection tool to determine glyphosate resistance. A leaf disc bioassay (using visual ratings and/or chlorophyll analysis and an assay for shikimate accumulation were effective methods for determining herbicide resistance levels. The two unknown biotypes were found to be resistant to this herbicide. Some differences were found in the protein profiles of the biotypes, and western blots demonstrated a weak labeling of antibody in the glyphosate-sensitive biotype, whereas strong labeling occurred in the resistant plants. This latter point supports research by others, that increased copy number of the EPSPS gene (and increased EPSPS protein levels is the resistance mechanism in this species. Results indicate the utility of certain bioassays for the determination of resistance and provide useful comparative information on the levels of inherent constituents among closely related plants.

Monitoring glyphosate and AMPA concentrations in wells and drains using the sorbicell passive sampler  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

Glyphosate is one of the world’s most extensively used weed control agents. Glyphosate, and its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), are suspected to be hazardous to human health and the aquatic environment. In Denmark, the extensive use has resulted in an increasing number of occurrences in groundwater wells and tile drains, stressing the need for extensive monitoring of this compound in the environment. Traditionally, monitoring programs are based on grab sampling which is time consuming and expensive due to the need for frequent sampling events. Using a passive sampling device, the SorbiCell, will decrease the workload and number of samples freeing up funds for larger monitoring programs. When installed in a well the SorbiCell will continuously sample the water giving either a flux-weighed or time-weighted average measurement of the glyphosate/AMPA concentration throughout the sampling period. It may therefore be possible to measure lower concentrations as the glyphosate/AMPA sorbed in the SorbiCell is an accumulated measurement. Also, glyphosate/AMPA associated with sudden flush events will be detected by the SorbiCells, while such events may pass between two consecutive grab samples. To document the ability of the SorbiCell to capture glyphosate/AMPA, a series of laboratory flow experiments were carried out. Sorption and release from the flow cells is tested with two influent solutions (0.15 µg/l and 5 µg/l), one of demineralized water and the other with drain water from the Silstrup site (part of the Danish Pesticide Leaching Assessment Program, PLAP), spiked with 14C marked glyphosate. Two different volumes of effluent were then eluted through Sorbicell’s with two different capacities. The concentration of glyphosate/AMPA was continuously measured in both the influent and effluent. The aim of the study is to test and verify if the glyphosate/AMPA sensitive SorbiCell is an efficient and reliable, and cost-effective technology for groundwater and drainwater monitoring of pesticides.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Um dos questionamentos no setor florestal é sobre os possíveis efeitos negativos da deriva de glyphosate sobre plantas de eucalipto ao longo de seu ciclo. Aos 30 dias após a aplicação (DAA) de 1.440 g ha-1 de glyphosate, para controle de plantas daninhas em talhão de Eucalyptus grandis x E. urophyll [...] a (híbrido urograndis) com 120 dias após o transplantio, selecionaram-se 120 plantas ao acaso, que apresentavam graus de intoxicação variáveis. Os tratamentos foram os seguintes intervalos: 0-5, 6-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40 e 41-50% de intoxicação das plantas, em que o intervalo de 0 - 5% foi considerado testemunha. Foram realizadas avaliações de altura e diâmetro, após a seleção das plantas, até os 360 DAA, sendo acompanhados durante esse período os sintomas de intoxicação. Aos 360 DAA, foi estimado o volume de madeira (m³) e calculado o ganho em altura e diâmetro durante o período de avaliação. Plantas com intoxicação inicial acima de 31% apresentaram menor altura e diâmetro aos 360 DAA. O ganho em altura foi menor em plantas com intoxicação inicial acima de 41%. Observou-se menor diâmetro a partir de 21% de intoxicação, com os menores valores de crescimento em diâmetro do caule observados em plantas com 41-50% de intoxicação. Os danos causados pela deriva do glyphosate afetaram a produção de madeira aos 360 DAA, em que plantas com 21-30, 31-40 e 41-50% de intoxicação apresentaram redução no volume de madeira de 18, 26 e 48%, respectivamente, em relação à testemunha. Os resultados confirmam os prejuízos ocasionados pela deriva do glyphosate em plantas de eucalipto. Novas avaliações devem ser realizadas para acompanhamento do crescimento e desenvolvimento das plantas até o final do ciclo do eucalipto, a fim de elucidar os efeitos da deriva do glyphosate sobre a produção final da cultura. Abstract in english The possible negative effects of glyphosate drift on eucalyptus plants throughout their cycle are one of the many issues faced in forestry. Thus, 120 plants presenting variable degrees of intoxication were randomly selected at day 30 after application of 1.440 g ha-1 glyphosate, aiming to control th [...] e weeds in an area of Eucalyptus grandis x E. urophylla (urograndis hybrid) at 120 days after transplantation. The treatments were constituted by the following intervals: 0-5; 6-10; 11-20; 21-30; 31-40 and 41-50% of plant intoxication with 0-5% being considered the control treatment. Height and diameter were evaluated after plant selection, up to 360 days after application (DAA) and the intoxication symptoms were evaluated during this period. At 360 DAA wood volume (m³) was estimated and height and diameter gains were calculated. Plants with initial intoxication above 31% presented lesser height and diameter at 270 DAA Height gains were lesser in plants with initial intoxication above 41%. Lesser diameter was observed from 21% intoxication, with the plants with 41-50% intoxication displaying the lesser values for diameter growth. The damage caused by the drift affected wood production at 270 DAA, with the plants with 21-30, 31-40 and 41-50% intoxication being the ones presenting reduced wood volume of 18, 26 and 48%, respectively, in relation to the control treatment. The results confirmed the damage caused by glyphosate drift to eucalyptus plants. However, new evaluations should be performed to monitor the growth and development of the plants until the end of their cycle so as to elucidate the drift effects on the final production.

Crescimento do eucalipto sob efeito da deriva de glyphosate Eucalyptus growth under the effect of glyphosate drift  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Um dos questionamentos no setor florestal é sobre os possíveis efeitos negativos da deriva de glyphosate sobre plantas de eucalipto ao longo de seu ciclo. Aos 30 dias após a aplicação (DAA de 1.440 g ha-1 de glyphosate, para controle de plantas daninhas em talhão de Eucalyptus grandis x E. urophylla (híbrido urograndis com 120 dias após o transplantio, selecionaram-se 120 plantas ao acaso, que apresentavam graus de intoxicação variáveis. Os tratamentos foram os seguintes intervalos: 0-5, 6-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40 e 41-50% de intoxicação das plantas, em que o intervalo de 0 - 5% foi considerado testemunha. Foram realizadas avaliações de altura e diâmetro, após a seleção das plantas, até os 360 DAA, sendo acompanhados durante esse período os sintomas de intoxicação. Aos 360 DAA, foi estimado o volume de madeira (m³ e calculado o ganho em altura e diâmetro durante o período de avaliação. Plantas com intoxicação inicial acima de 31% apresentaram menor altura e diâmetro aos 360 DAA. O ganho em altura foi menor em plantas com intoxicação inicial acima de 41%. Observou-se menor diâmetro a partir de 21% de intoxicação, com os menores valores de crescimento em diâmetro do caule observados em plantas com 41-50% de intoxicação. Os danos causados pela deriva do glyphosate afetaram a produção de madeira aos 360 DAA, em que plantas com 21-30, 31-40 e 41-50% de intoxicação apresentaram redução no volume de madeira de 18, 26 e 48%, respectivamente, em relação à testemunha. Os resultados confirmam os prejuízos ocasionados pela deriva do glyphosate em plantas de eucalipto. Novas avaliações devem ser realizadas para acompanhamento do crescimento e desenvolvimento das plantas até o final do ciclo do eucalipto, a fim de elucidar os efeitos da deriva do glyphosate sobre a produção final da cultura.The possible negative effects of glyphosate drift on eucalyptus plants throughout their cycle are one of the many issues faced in forestry. Thus, 120 plants presenting variable degrees of intoxication were randomly selected at day 30 after application of 1.440 g ha-1 glyphosate, aiming to control the weeds in an area of Eucalyptus grandis x E. urophylla (urograndis hybrid at 120 days after transplantation. The treatments were constituted by the following intervals: 0-5; 6-10; 11-20; 21-30; 31-40 and 41-50% of plant intoxication with 0-5% being considered the control treatment. Height and diameter were evaluated after plant selection, up to 360 days after application (DAA and the intoxication symptoms were evaluated during this period. At 360 DAA wood volume (m³ was estimated and height and diameter gains were calculated. Plants with initial intoxication above 31% presented lesser height and diameter at 270 DAA Height gains were lesser in plants with initial intoxication above 41%. Lesser diameter was observed from 21% intoxication, with the plants with 41-50% intoxication displaying the lesser values for diameter growth. The damage caused by the drift affected wood production at 270 DAA, with the plants with 21-30, 31-40 and 41-50% intoxication being the ones presenting reduced wood volume of 18, 26 and 48%, respectively, in relation to the control treatment. The results confirmed the damage caused by glyphosate drift to eucalyptus plants. However, new evaluations should be performed to monitor the growth and development of the plants until the end of their cycle so as to elucidate the drift effects on the final production.

Effect of soil aeration and phosphate addition on the microbial bioavailability of carbon-14-glyphosate.  

Science.gov (United States)

The adsorption, desorption, degradation, and mineralization of C-glyphosate [-(phosphonomethyl)glycine] were examined in Catlin (a fine-silty, mixed, superactive, mesic Oxyaquic Argiudoll), Flanagan (a fine, smectitic, mesic Aquic Argiudoll), and Drummer (a fine-silty, mixed, superactive, mesic Typic Endoaquoll) soils under oxic and anoxic soil conditions. With the exception of the Drummer soil, soil aeration did not significantly alter the adsorption pattern of C-glyphosate to soils. Herbicide desorption was generally enhanced with anaerobiosis in all the soil types. Anoxic soils demonstrated slower microbial degradation and mineralization kinetics of C-glyphosate than oxic soils in all the soil types studied. Phosphate additions significantly reduced the adsorption of C-glyphosate to soils irrespective of soil aeration and confirmed the well-established competitive adsorption theory. The addition of soil phosphate stimulated degradation only in anoxic soils. The results from this research highlight the importance of soil redox conditions as an important factor affecting the bioavailability and mobility of glyphosate in soils. PMID:25602328

Pre-harvest desiccation with glyphosate and quality of stored soybean seeds  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Seeds from non-genetically modified soybean cultivars harvested after chemical desiccation of plants with glyphosate may produce abnormal seedlings; these may show phytotoxicity symptoms that could persist even after some time of storage due to accumulation of toxic residues. This study aimed to evaluate the quality of stored soybean seeds harvested after chemical desiccation of plants with glyphosate at R7 stage. Seeds from soybean cultivar ‘Conquista’ were produced with and without desiccation with glyphosate, at the dose 2.0 L ha-1, applied at physiological maturity stage. Seed quality was evaluated right after harvest and after eight months of storage by tests of moisture content, mass, germination and vigor. The experimental design was the completely randomized block with four replications. Data was submitted to variance analysis and means were compared by the Tukey test (p ? 0.05 as a 2 x 2 factorial. The results show deleterious effects of glyphosate used as desiccant for early harvest of soybean seeds from conventional cultivars. Accelerating plant senescence leads to production of seeds with lower germination and decreased seedling development, although the percentage of abnormal seedlings is reduced after 8 months of storage possibly due to degradation of toxic residues of glyphosate and/or derivates.

Influence of glyphosate on the copper dissolution in phosphate buffer  

Science.gov (United States)

The electrochemical behavior of copper microelectrode in phosphate buffer in the presence of glyphosate was investigated by electrochemical techniques. It was observed that the additions of glyphosate in the phosphate buffer increased the anodic current of copper microelectrode and the electrochemical dissolution was observed. This phenomenon could be associated with the Cu(II) complexation by glyphosate forming a soluble complex. Physical characterization of the surface showed that, in absence of glyphosate, an insoluble layer covered the copper surface; on the other hand, in presence of glyphosate, it was observed a corroded copper surface with the formation of glyphosate complex in solution.

Plantas de milho e soja foram pulverizadas com subdoses de glyphosate (0,0 a 230,4 ge.a.ha-1), determinando-se o teor de ácido chiquímico na massa seca dessas plantas por HPLC aos 3,7 e 10 dias após aplicação. Os resultados mostraram acúmulo de ácido chiquímico na massa seca dessas plantas, com aumento de até 969% no milho e 33.000% na soja, com picos de concentração aos 3 DAT. A praticabilidade industrial do processo de obtenção do ácido chiquímico, aliada às condições edafoclimáticas favoráveis ao plantio de milho e soja em diversos países, favorece o uso de subdoses de glyphosate na biossíntese de ácido chiquímico, com potencial para ser explorado como indutor na produção do fosfato de oseltamivir com baixo impacto ambiental. Abstract in english Oseltamivir phosphate is a potent viral inhibitor produced from shikimic acid extracted from seeds of Ilicium verum, the most important natural source. With the site of action 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSP), glyphosate is the only compound capable of inhibiting its activity with [...] the consequent accumulation of shikimic acid in plants. Corn and soybean plants were sprayed with reduced rates of glyphosate (0.0 to 230.4 g a.i. ha¹) and shikimic acid content in the dry mass was determined by HPLC 3, 7 and 10 days after application. Results showed shikimic acid accumulation in dry mass with increases of up to 969% in corn and 33,000% on soybeans, with peak concentrations 3 days after treatment (DAT). Industrial feasibility for shikimic acid production, combined with favorable climatic conditions for growing corn and soybean in virtually all over Brazil, favor the use of reduced rates of glyphosate in shikimic acid biosynthesis, with potential for use as an inducer in exploration of alternative sources for production of oseltamivir phosphate with low environmental impact.

Identificação de biótipos de azevém (Lolium multiflorum) resistentes ao herbicida glyphosate em pomares de maçã / Identification of glyphosate-resistant ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) biotypes in apple orchards  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese O glyphosate é um herbicida de amplo espectro utilizado há mais de 15 anos em pomares de maçã na região de Vacaria-RS, para manejo da vegetação nas linhas da cultura. São realizadas, em geral, três a quatro aplicações por ciclo e a dose normalmente utilizada é de 720 a 1.080 g e.a. ha-1 de glyphosat [...] e (2 a 3 L ha-1 do produto comercial). O azevém (Lolium multiflorum) é uma planta daninha comum em pomares e, tradicionalmente, sensível ao glyphosate. Entretanto, nos últimos anos a ocorrência de plantas de azevém que, após receberem o tratamento com glyphosate, não manifestam sintomas significativos de toxicidade sugere que elas adquiriram resistência ao produto. Assim, com o objetivo de avaliar a resposta de uma população de plantas de azevém ao glyphosate, foram realizados três experimentos: um em campo e dois em casa de vegetação. No experimento em campo os tratamentos avaliados constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440, 2.880, 5.760 e 11.520 g e.a. ha-1), e os herbicidas paraquat, glufosinate, haloxyfop e diclofop foram empregados como produtos-padrão, aplicados em dois estádios vegetativos do azevém. No experimento em casa de vegetação, os tratamentos constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate (0, 360, 720, 1.440, 2.880 e 5.760 g e.a. ha-1) mais os herbicidas testemunhas, aplicados sobre plantas do biótipo considerado resistente e de um sensível. No segundo experimento realizado em casa de vegetação foram avaliados tratamentos contendo glyphosate (720, 1.440, 2.880, 720 + 720 e 720 + 1.440 g e.a. ha-1), em aplicações únicas e seqüenciais, mais os herbicidas paraquat, glufosinate, haloxyfop, clethodim, sethoxydim, diclofop, fenoxaprop, fluazifop, paraquat + diuron, atrazine + simazine, trifluralin e metolachlor. A toxicidade dos tratamentos herbicidas foi avaliada aos 15, 30 e 45 DAT (dias após tratamento). Os resultados obtidos nos experimentos em campo e em casa de vegetação, de forma geral, evidenciam que o biótipo sensível é facilmente controlado com o herbicida glyphosate e pelos demais herbicidas pós-emergentes avaliados, independentemente do estádio vegetativo. Demonstram, ainda, que o biótipo resistente apresenta-se, igualmente ao biótipo sensível, altamente suscetível aos herbicidas com mecanismo de ação distinto daquele do glyphosate. No entanto, o biótipo resistente apresenta baixa resposta ao herbicida glyphosate, mesmo se este for empregado em altas doses, evidenciando ter adquirido resistência a esse produto. Abstract in english Glyphosate is a wide spectrum herbicide used for over 15 years in apple orchards in Vacaria-RS for weed control in rows of trees. Usually, 3 to 4 applications per year are made at a rate of 720 to 1080 g a.e. glyphosate ha-1 (2 to 3 L ha-1 of commercial product). Ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) is a c [...] ommon weed in orchards and traditionally sensitive to glyphosate. However, in the last years, some ryegrass plants have not been found to show significant toxicity symptoms after treatment with glyphosate, suggesting that they acquired resistance to this product. To evaluate the response of a ryegrass plant population to glyphosate, one field and two greenhouse experiments were carried out. The field experiment treatments had increasing rates of glyphosate (0; 360; 720; 1,440; 2,880; 5,760 and 11,520 g a.e. ha-1), in addition to the herbicides paraquat, glufosinate-ammonium, haloxyfop and diclofop-methyl as standards, sprayed at two different vegetative growth stages of ryegrass. The greenhouse experiments had increasing rates of glyphosate (0; 360; 720; 1,440; 2,880 and 5,760 g a.e. ha-1) plus the above listed check herbicides sprayed on biotypes considered resistant and on plants of one susceptible biotype. In the second greenhouse experiment, glyphosate rates (720; 1,440; 2,880; 720 + 720 and 720 + 1,440 g a.e. ha-1) were sprayed in single and sequential applications, in addition to the herbicides paraquat, glufosin

Cow milk allergy symptoms are reduced in mice fed dietary synbiotics during oral sensitization with whey.  

Science.gov (United States)

Cow milk allergy is the most common food allergy in children. So far, no effective treatment is available to prevent or cure food allergy. The purpose of this study was to compare effects of dietary supplementation with a prebiotic mixture (Immunofortis), a probiotic strain [Bifidobacterium breve M-16V], or a synbiotic diet combining both on the outcome of the allergic response when provided during oral sensitization with whey in mice. Mice were fed diets containing 2% (wt:wt) Immunofortis and/or the B. breve M-16V (n = 6/group). The acute allergic skin response was determined by measuring ear swelling. Antigen-induced anaphylaxis was scored. Furthermore, whey-specific serum immunoglobulins and mouse mast cell protease-1 (mMCP-1) were determined. In mice fed the synbiotic mixture, the allergic skin response and the anaphylactic reaction were strongly reduced compared with whey-sensitized mice fed the control diet (P skin response than the synbiotic diet and did not reduce the anaphylactic reaction. The whey-specific IgE and IgG(1) responses were not affected; however, IgG(2a) was greater in all treated groups than in the control group (P < 0.05). Serum mMCP-1 concentrations, reflecting mucosal mast cell degranulation, were lower in mice fed synbiotics compared with those fed the control diet (P < 0.01). Dietary supplementation with Immunofortis, B. breve M-16V, and particularly the synbiotic mixture, provided during sensitization, reduces the allergic effector response in a murine model of IgE-mediated hypersensitivity that mimics the human route of sensitization. This model shows the potential for dietary intervention with synbiotics in reducing the allergic response to food allergens. PMID:19474160

Low-cost reduced graphene oxide-based conductometric nitrogen dioxide-sensitive sensor on paper.  

Science.gov (United States)

The fabrication concept for a low-cost sensor device using reduced graphene oxide (rGO) as the sensing material on a porous paper substrate is presented. The sensors were characterized using conductivity and capacitance measurements, atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The effects of different reducing agents, graphene oxide (GO) flake size and film thickness were studied. The sensor was sensitive to NO2, and devices based on a thin (10-nm) hydrazine-reduced GO layer had the best sensitivity, reaching a 70% reduction in resistance after 10 min of exposure to 10 ppm NO2. The sensitivity was high enough for the detection of sub-parts per million levels of NO2. Desorption of gas molecules, i.e. the recovery of the sensor, could be accelerated by UV irradiation. The structure and preparation of the sensor are simple and up-scalable, allowing their fabrication in bulk quantities, and the fabrication concept can be applied to other materials, too.

Alteração das características biológicas dos biótipos de azevém (Lolium multiflorum ocasionada pela resistência ao herbicida glyphosate Change in the biological characteristics of ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum biotypes caused by resistance to the herbicide glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A resistência de biótipos de azevém ao herbicida glyphosate está alterando o manejo da vegetação de cobertura do solo em pomares de maçã. O objetivo deste trabalho foi determinar a dose de glyphosate necessária para reduzir 50% do acúmulo de matéria seca (GR50, a resposta do biótipo resistente e sensível a herbicidas graminicidas e o acúmulo de matéria seca destes biótipos durante o ciclo. Para isso, foram conduzidos três experimentos. No primeiro, os tratamentos constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate aplicadas sobre plantas dos biótipos resistente e sensível para determinar o GR50. No segundo experimento, os tratamentos constaram de doses dos herbicidas glyphosate, haloxyfop-r, diclofop, fluazifop-p, fenoxaprop-p e paraquat. No terceiro experimento, sementes dos biótipos resistente e sensível foram semeadas em recipientes com capacidade para 10 L e as plantas originadas delas foram colhidas quinzenalmente, para determinação da matéria seca da parte aérea, radicular e total. Como resultados, foi obtido GR50 de 287,5 e de 4.833,5 g e.a. ha-1 de glyphosate para os biótipos sensível e resistente, respectivamente, e verificou-se que existem diferenças significativas na resposta dos biótipos aos herbicidas graminicidas, dependendo da dose utilizada. Além disso, o biótipo sensível evidenciou maior capacidade de acúmulo de matéria seca e produção de sementes. Constatouse, assim, fator de resistência (FR de 16,8 e que o mecanismo de resistência provoca alterações nas características biológicas do biótipo resistente e afeta a sensibilidade deste aos herbicidas graminicidas.The identification of ryegrass biotypes resistant to glyphosate is causing changes in weed management in apple orchards. Three experiments were carried out to determine the GR50 of the biotypes, to grass herbicides and dry matter accumulation. The first experiment tested different rates of glyphosate. Their effects on GR50 dry matter accumulation by the biotype were assessed. In the second experiment different rates of glyphosate and grass herbicides were tested: glyphosate, haloxyfop-r, diclofop, fluazifop-p, fenoxaprop-p and paraquat. A third experiments was carried out under glasshouse conditions to determine the curve of dry matter accumulation. The results showed GR50 of 287.5 and 4,833.5 g e. a. ha-1 of glyphosate for the sensitive and resistant biotypes, respectively. The results showed that the resistant factor (RF was 16.8 and that the resistance mechanism alters the biological characteristics of the resistant biotype affecting its sensitivity to grass herbicides.

Growth and Yield of Glyphosate-Resistant Corn under Different Timing of Glyphosate Application  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A field experiment was conducted in 2002 in Langkat, North Sumatra, to determine the effects of glyphosate application timing on the growth and grain yield of glyphosate-resistant corn. Glyphosate at 1,500 g ha-1 was applied at twelve different treatments namely at the V3 stage, the V4 stage, the V5 stage, the V6 stage, the V7 stage, the V8 stage, the V9 stage, the V10 stage, the V12 stage, the V3 stage followed by at the V7 stage, the V3 stage followed by at V12 stage and the V4 stage followed by at V8 stage of glyphosate-resistant corn growth. In addition to the twelve treatments, two other treatments (maintained weed free all season and weed infested all season were provided for comparison. Competition between corn and weed at the beginning of growth prior to glyphosate application affected growth and yield of corn more than that of post application. Compared to yield resulted from weed-free plot all season, no significant grain yield were found when glyphosate was applied at the V3 stage, the V4 stage, the V3 and V7 stage, the V3 and V12 stage and the V4 and V8 stage. Single application of glyphosate at the V3 corn growth was found to be the best timing of glyphosate application for weed control in Langkat, North Sumatra conditions.

Dessecação de plantas daninhas com glyphosate em mistura com ureia ou sulfato de amônio / Weed desiccation with glyphosate mixed with urea or ammonium sulfate  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese O glyphosate é um herbicida não-seletivo, sistêmico, usado para controle de plantas daninhas anuais e perenes em todo o mundo. A absorção da molécula do glyphosate ocorre pelos tecidos fotossinteticamente ativos das plantas, porém alguns fatores podem reduzir sua eficácia, como a morfologia e divers [...] idade de espécies, chuva após aplicação, qualidade da água e misturas em tanque com outros defensivos, entre outros. Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar a influência da adição de sulfato de amônio ou ureia em calda na eficácia do herbicida glyphosate para dessecação de plantas daninhas. Dois experimentos foram desenvolvidos em Piracicaba - SP, com aplicações de glyphosate (720 e 1.440 g ha-1) isolado ou combinado com duas doses de sulfato de amônio (7,5 e 15,0 g L-1) ou ureia (2,5 e 5,0 g L-1) sobre as plantas daninhas: apaga-fogo (Alternanthera tenella) e capim-massambará (Sorghum halepense). Para a espécie menos suscetível ao herbicida (capim-massambará), a adição de fontes nitrogenadas à menor dose de glyphosate acelerou a morte das plantas, elevando os níveis de controle em até 7,3% na avaliação de 21 dias após aplicação (DAA) dos tratamentos. Contudo, os efeitos não foram observados nas avaliações de controle, massa fresca e seca, conduzidas aos 28 DAA. A dose recomendada de glyphosate para cada espécie proporcionou controle satisfatório, sem a necessidade de adição de sulfato de amônio ou ureia. Abstract in english Glyphosate is a non-selective systemic herbicide used to control annual and perennial weeds worldwide. Molecule absorption occurs through the plant's photosynthetically-active tissues; however, some factors might reduce its efficacy, such as morphology and specific diversity, rain after application, [...] water quality and tank mixtures with other chemicals. Thus, this work aimed to evaluate the influence of ammonium sulfate or urea addiction to spray tank on glyphosate efficacy for weed desiccation. Two trials were carried out in Piracicaba - SP, with applications of glyphosate (720 and 1440 g ha-1) alone or combined with two rates of ammonium sulfate (7.5 and 15.0 g L-1) or urea (2.5 and 5.0 g L-1), over the weeds Alternanthera tenella and Sorghum halepense. For the least susceptible species (S. halepense), the addition of nitrogen sources to the lower rate of glyphosate accelerated plant death, increasing the control levels up to 7.3%, at 21 days after application (DAA). However, the effects were not observed when control, fresh and dry mass were evaluated at 28 DAA. Glyphosate recommended rate for each species promoted appropriate control, without the need to add ammonium sulfate or urea.

Differential response of two sourgrass populations to glyphosate  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

The repetitive use of glyphosate may cause increase on the resistance of sourgrass (Digitaria insularis) through mechanisms of natural selection. The aim of this study was to verify the response of two populations of sourgrass (one collected from nonagricultural area and the other one from area suspected of glyphosate resistance) to increasing doses of glyphosate. The experimental design was completely randomized with four repetitions. For both populations, glyphosate was sprayed at 10 doses ...

Molecular basis of glyphosate resistance: Different approaches through protein engineering  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl-glycine) is the most-used herbicide in the world: glyphosate-based formulations exhibit broad-spectrum herbicidal activity with minimal human and environmental toxicity. The extraordinary success of this simple small molecule is mainly due to the high specificity of glyphosate towards the plant enzyme enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase in the shikimate pathway leading to biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids. Starting in 1996, transgenic glyphosate-resistan...

Effect of Reducing Groundwater on the Retardation of Redox-Sensitive Radionuclides  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Laboratory batch sorption experiments were used to investigate variations in the retardation behavior of redox-sensitive radionuclides. Water-rock compositions used during these experiments were designed to simulate subsurface conditions at the Nevada Test Site (NTS), where a suite of radionuclides were deposited as a result of underground nuclear testing. Experimental redox conditions were controlled by varying the oxygen content inside an enclosed glove box and by adding reductants into the testing solutions. Under atmospheric (oxidizing) conditions, the radionuclide distribution coefficients varied with the mineralogical composition of the sorbent and the water chemistry. Under reducing conditions, distribution coefficients showed marked increases for {sup 99}Tc and {sup 237}Np in devitrified tuff, but much smaller variations in alluvium, carbonate rock, and zeolitic tuff. This effect was particularly important for {sup 99}Tc, which tends to be mobile under oxidizing conditions. Unlike other redox-sensitive radionuclides, iodine sorption may decrease under reducing conditions when I{sup -} is the predominant species. Overall, sorption of U to alluvium, devitrified tuff, and zeolitic tuff under atmospheric conditions was less than in the glove-box tests. However, the mildly reducing conditions achieved here were not likely to result in substantial U(VI) reduction to U(IV). Sorption of Pu was not affected by the decreasing redox conditions achieved in this study, as the predominant sorbed Pu species in all conditions was expected to be the low-solubility and strongly sorbing Pu(OH){sub 4}. Depending on the aquifer lithology, the occurrence of reducing conditions along a groundwater flowpath could potentially contribute to the retardation of redox-sensitive radionuclides {sup 99}Tc and {sup 237}Np, which are commonly identified as long-term dose contributors in the risk assessment in various nuclear facilities.

[Glyphosate and its formulations--toxicity, occupational and environmental exposure].  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate (N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine) is an active ingredient of the most widely used herbicide formulations in protecting agricultural and horticultural crops. Numerous results (mostly published in the years 2010-2013) concerning the action of glyphosate and its formulations in the recent decade were analyzed. Initial reports about alleged biodegradability of glyphosate in the environment turned out to be wrong. It has been shown that glyphosate remains in the soil and can reach people by spreading along with groundwater. Recent publications have shown that glyphosate is detected at low concentrations in the human blood. Publications cited in this article, which indicate a possible induction of neoplastic changes by glyphosate formulation, have raised great concern and controversy in the scientific world. Presenting adverse effects of glyphosate and its formulations we focused on the role of glyphosate formulations in hormonal disorders by impeding the expression of steroidogenic acute regulatory protein and the inhibition of aromatase activity. The impact of glyphosate on oxygen reactive species formation, changes in redox system and the effect on necrosis and apoptosis in various types of cells was shown. We also revealed that glyphosate as a phosphonate herbicide does not inhibit directly the activity of acetylcholinesterase. Based on numerous studies it was noted that commercial formulations of glyphosate exhibit higher toxicity than that of the active substance itself. The discussed problems clearly show the need to evaluate the toxicity of glyphosate and its formulations and related potential threat to humans. PMID:24502134

Em S. latifolia, aproximadamente 88% do glyphosate permaneceu na folha de aplicação, e pequena quantidade translocou para as raízes. Todavia, em T. procumbens, 75% do herbicida permaneceu na folha que recebeu a aplicação, observando-se maior translocação na inflorescência em relação às raízes. Conclui-se que a menor translocação do glyphosate observada em S. latifolia e T. procumbens pode ser um dos fatores responsáveis pela maior tolerância dessas espécies ao herbicida, ao passo que em I. nil a metabolização, a exsudação radicular ou a compartimentalização podem favorecer a tolerância, já que grande quantidade do produto atingiu as raízes da espécie. Abstract in english The objective of this study was to evaluate glyphosate translocation in glyphosate-tolerant weed species (I. nil, T. procumbens and S. latifolia) compared to glyphosate-susceptible species (B. pilosa). The evaluations of 14C-glyphosate absorption and translocation were performed at 6, 12, 36 and 72 [...] hours after treatment (HAT) in I. nil and B. pilosa, and only at 72 HAT in the species T. procumbens and S. latifolia. The plants were collected and fractionated into application leaf, other leaves, stems, and roots. In S. latifolia, approximately 88% of the glyphosate remained in the application leaf and a small amount was translocated to roots at 72 HAT. However, 75% of the herbicide applied on T. procumbens remained in the leaf that had received the treatment, with greater glyphosate translocation to the floral bud. It was concluded that the smaller amount of glyphosate observed in S. latifolia and T. procumbens may partly account for their higher tolerance to glyphosate. However, I. nil tolerance to glyphosate may be associated with other factors such as metabolization, root exudation or compartmentalization, because a large amount of the herbicide reached the roots of this species.

Glyphosate Effects on Sugarcane Metabolism and Growth  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world. In sugarcane, it is used as a herbicide when applied at its field rate, but it is also used as ripener when applied as low doses. However, the effects of glyphosate on plant metabolism and sugarcane growth are not fully understood. This study aimed to evaluate the metabolic changes and the effects on sugarcane plant growth caused by the application of different doses of glyphosate. Sugarcane plants were grown in a greenhouse and subjected to glyphosate applications at doses of 7.2; 18; 36; 72; 180; 360 and 720 g a.e. ha-1. Plants grown without an herbicide application were used as a control. Plants from each treatment were collected at 2, 7, 14, and 21 days after treatment (DAT application to quantify the levels of shikimic acid, quinic acid, shikimate-3-phosphate, glyphosate, ?-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan. Visual evaluations of plant intoxication were performed at the same time as the collection of plants, and the quantification of their shoot dry biomass was performed at 21 DAT. At doses of glyphosate greater than 72 g a.e. ha-1, increases in the levels of shikimic acid, quinic acid, and shikimate-3-phosphate occurred and AMPA was detected in the plants. Initially, glyphosate caused increases in the plant levels of phenylalanine and tyrosine at doses of 72 and 180 g a.e. ha-1, although a decrease in the levels of aromatic amino acids subsequently occurred at and above the doses of 72 or 180 g a.e. ha-1. The doses ranging from 7.2 to 36 g a.e. ha-1 promoted an increase in plant shoot biomass, and doses greater than 72 g a.e. ha-1 caused significant reductions in dry mass.

Efficacy of POST glyphosate applications in combination with other POST herbicides in glyphosate-resistant corn (Zea mays L.)  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

The use of glyphosate-resistant corn has facilitated a shift from a reliance on preemergence residual herbicides to postemergence (POST) herbicides, and in some cases exclusively glyphosate. Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide that is relatively slow-acting, which may allow weeds to continue to compete with corn after application and potentially decrease crop yield. The addition of ...

Rydberg atoms with a reduced sensitivity to dc and low-frequency electric fields  

CERN Document Server

A non-resonant microwave dressing field at 38.465 GHz was used to eliminate the static electric dipole moment difference between the $49s_{1/2}$ and $48s_{1/2}$ Rydberg states of $^{87}$Rb in dc fields of approximately 1 V/cm. The reduced susceptibility to electric field fluctuations was measured using 2-photon microwave spectroscopy. An anomalous spectral doublet is attributed to polarization ellipticity in the dressing field. The demonstrated ability to inhibit static dipole moment differences --- while retaining sensitivity to high frequency fields --- is applicable to sensors and/or quantum devices using Rydberg atoms.

Time-division SQUID multiplexers with reduced sensitivity to external magnetic fields  

CERN Document Server

Time-division SQUID multiplexers are used in many applications that require exquisite control of systematic error. One potential source of systematic error is the pickup of external magnetic fields in the multiplexer. We present measurements of the field sensitivity figure of merit, effective area, for both the first stage and second stage SQUID amplifiers in three NIST SQUID multiplexer designs. These designs include a new variety with improved gradiometry that significantly reduces the effective area of both the first and second stage SQUID amplifiers.

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana plants expressing the Arabidopsis etr1-1 allele show reduced ethylene sensitivity.  

Science.gov (United States)

Transgenic Kalanchoe blossfeldiana Poelln. with reduced ethylene sensitivity in flowers was obtained by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation using the plasmid pBEO210 containing the mutant ethylene receptor gene etr1-1 from Arabidopsis thaliana under the control of the flower-specific fbp1-promoter from Petunia. Three ethylene-resistent T0 lines, 300, 324 and 331, were selected and analyzed for postharvest-performance and morphological characteristics. Line 324 was found to be infertile and only slightly less ethylene-sensitive than control-plants, but lines 300 and 331 had significantly increased ethylene-resistance and were fertile. These two lines were analyzed for copy-number of the etr1-1 gene by Southern blotting and were crossed with the ethylene-sensitive cultivar 'Celine' to create T1 progeny. Line 300 contains two T-DNA copies per nucleus, one of which is rearranged, and these are unlinked according to segregation data from the crossing to 'Celine' and PCR-analysis of progeny plants. For control plants all flowers were closed after 2 days at 2 microl l(-1 )ethylene, but for line 300 only 33% were closed after 10 days. Line 331 contains three T-DNA copies per nucleus and is more sensitive to ethylene than line 300. In the line 300 the etr1-1 gene was found by RT-PCR to be expressed in petals and stamens but not in carpels and sepals. Both lines 300 and 331, and their progeny, appear morphologically and physiologically identical to control plants except for the higher ethylene resistance. Line 300 and its progeny with only one T-DNA copy have very low ethylene sensitivity and may be useful in future breeding. PMID:18080125

The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the growth and competitive interactions in a model system of two perennial grass species, Festuca ovina and Agrostis capillaris, are affected by sub-lethal doses of glyphosate in field margins. In a glasshouse experiment with ample nitrogen, the interspecific competitive interactions were found to be significantly affected by glyphosate; the competitive effect of F. ovina on A. capillaris increased and the competitive effect of A. capillaris on F. ovina decreased with increasing doses of glyphosate. Furthermore, the importance of interspecific competition increased with the glyphosate dose. The results of the study of competitive interactions are in agreement with the observed plant community dynamics at the field site where F. ovina was found to be more dominant in plots treated with a relatively high dose of glyphosate. Importantly, the effects of glyphosate on the plant community dynamics critically depended on the effect of glyphosate on the plant competitive interactions. The study concludes that the current practice in the environmental risk assessment of non-target effects of herbicides, where single species are tested in the greenhouse, may be inadequate for assessing the effect of herbicides in semi-natural plant communities. The presented methods can be used for assessing the importance of competitive interactions for the sensitivity of non-target plants to herbicides in risk assessment. PMID:25310805

Improved durability of dye-sensitized solar cell with H2-reduced carbon counter electrode  

Science.gov (United States)

Carbon counter electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have attracted strong attention due to their low material cost and practically high power conversion efficiency (PCE). However, there were issues in PCE stability observed during durability tests. In this study, H2-reduced carbon counter electrode for low cost DSSCs is introduced and demonstrated improved durability over the conventional carbon electrodes, with the absolute PCE value of 7.7%. It was found that carbon resistance decay ratio improved compared to those without H2-reduction process. These cells after the durability test were disassembled, and surface adsorptions on the carbon counter electrodes were analyzed. The adsorption of compounds originated from the dye and co-adsorbents on the H2-reduced carbon electrode was largely reduced, due to the cleaning of surface functional groups that can adsorb large molecules. These results suggest that H2-reduction process proposed in this work effectively reduces surface adsorptions on carbon electrode, and as a result improves the durability of DSSCs.

Alteração das características biológicas dos biótipos de azevém (Lolium multiflorum) ocasionada pela resistência ao herbicida glyphosate / Change in the biological characteristics of ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) biotypes caused by resistance to the herbicide glyphosate  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese A resistência de biótipos de azevém ao herbicida glyphosate está alterando o manejo da vegetação de cobertura do solo em pomares de maçã. O objetivo deste trabalho foi determinar a dose de glyphosate necessária para reduzir 50% do acúmulo de matéria seca (GR50), a resposta do biótipo resistente e se [...] nsível a herbicidas graminicidas e o acúmulo de matéria seca destes biótipos durante o ciclo. Para isso, foram conduzidos três experimentos. No primeiro, os tratamentos constaram de doses crescentes de glyphosate aplicadas sobre plantas dos biótipos resistente e sensível para determinar o GR50. No segundo experimento, os tratamentos constaram de doses dos herbicidas glyphosate, haloxyfop-r, diclofop, fluazifop-p, fenoxaprop-p e paraquat. No terceiro experimento, sementes dos biótipos resistente e sensível foram semeadas em recipientes com capacidade para 10 L e as plantas originadas delas foram colhidas quinzenalmente, para determinação da matéria seca da parte aérea, radicular e total. Como resultados, foi obtido GR50 de 287,5 e de 4.833,5 g e.a. ha-1 de glyphosate para os biótipos sensível e resistente, respectivamente, e verificou-se que existem diferenças significativas na resposta dos biótipos aos herbicidas graminicidas, dependendo da dose utilizada. Além disso, o biótipo sensível evidenciou maior capacidade de acúmulo de matéria seca e produção de sementes. Constatouse, assim, fator de resistência (FR) de 16,8 e que o mecanismo de resistência provoca alterações nas características biológicas do biótipo resistente e afeta a sensibilidade deste aos herbicidas graminicidas. Abstract in english The identification of ryegrass biotypes resistant to glyphosate is causing changes in weed management in apple orchards. Three experiments were carried out to determine the GR50 of the biotypes, to grass herbicides and dry matter accumulation. The first experiment tested different rates of glyphosat [...] e. Their effects on GR50 dry matter accumulation by the biotype were assessed. In the second experiment different rates of glyphosate and grass herbicides were tested: glyphosate, haloxyfop-r, diclofop, fluazifop-p, fenoxaprop-p and paraquat. A third experiments was carried out under glasshouse conditions to determine the curve of dry matter accumulation. The results showed GR50 of 287.5 and 4,833.5 g e. a. ha-1 of glyphosate for the sensitive and resistant biotypes, respectively. The results showed that the resistant factor (RF) was 16.8 and that the resistance mechanism alters the biological characteristics of the resistant biotype affecting its sensitivity to grass herbicides.

Reduced plantar sole sensitivity induces balance control modifications to compensate ankle tendon vibration and vision deprivation.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of this study was to investigate if sensory reweighting occurred to control balance when the sensitivity of the plantar sole is reduced using cooling. To address this question, visual information was manipulated and/or ankle proprioception was altered by Achilles tendon vibration. It was expected that Achilles tendon vibration and vision deprivation would induce greater center of pressure (CoP) excursions and/or increase of electromyographic (EMG) activity of the ankle muscles (triceps surea and tibialis anterior) with than without cooling of the plantar sole. To verify these hypotheses, the CoP and EMG activity of the ankle muscles were simultaneously recorded during quiet standing trials of 30s before and after feet cooling procedure. Results showed that plantar sole sensitivity alteration did not lead to larger CoP excursions even during Achilles tendon vibration in absence of vision. This could be explained by an increase in the EMG activity of the triceps surae after the cooling procedure without modification of tibialis anterior EMG activity. This study suggests that to compensate alteration in plantar sole sensitivity, the central nervous system increased the muscular activity of the triceps surae to limit CoP excursions. PMID:24993669

Fuzzy Controller Based Dvr To Mitigate Power Quaity And Reduce The Harmonics Distortion Of Sensitive Load  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available PI controller is very common in the control of DVRs. However, one disadvantage of this conventional controller is its inability to still working well under a wider range of operating conditions. So, as a solution fuzzy controller is proposed. This paper discusses the design and simulation of dynamic voltage restorer for improve power quality and reduce the harmonics distortion of sensitive load. Power quality problem is an occur as a non-standard voltage, current and frequency. Electronics devices are very sensitive load against harmonics. In power system voltage sag, swell, flicker and harmonics are some of the problem to the sensitive load. The compensation capability of a DVR depends primarily on the maximum voltage injection ability and the amount of stored energy available within the restorer. This device is connected in series with the distribution feeder at medium voltage. A fuzzy logic control is proposed. Simulation result carried out by Matlab/Simulink verifies the performance of the proposed method.

STUDY OF CHRONIC TOXICITY OF THE GLYPHOSATE HERBICIDE IN SEEDS OF CORN,  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate is an agrochemical from the group of phosphonates, which is widely used as a herbicide. Although it kills almost any plant, it can be used to eliminate weeds during the growth of crops that are resistant to glyphosate. This research aimed to evaluate the toxicological effects of the herbicide in a study using as test organism seeds of maize (Zea mays, okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L. Moench and arugula (Eruca sativa. The toxicological testing was to use a paper towel dampened with a sample of glyphosate and twenty seeds evenly distributed in containers with lids, left in a dry and airy place, and watered once a day for 5 days. It was possible to check the toxic effect of glyphosate for corn seeds at concentrations above 90 mg.L-1, for okra seeds at concentrations above 75 mg L-1 and arugula seeds in concentrations above 2 mg L - 1. Thus it was concluded that the seeds studied showed a high sensitivity with the possibility to be applied in toxicity testing, representing a simple and low cost.

Evaluation of reduced allergenicity of irradiated peanut extract using splenocytes from peanut-sensitized mice  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Peanut (PN) allergy is one of the most serious forms of IgE-mediated food hypersensitivity. Gamma irradiation has been widely used for the preservation of food. The results of our previous studies showed that the IgE-binding capacity to several antigens were profoundly reduced after gamma irradiation. In this study, we evaluated the changes of allergenecity and cytokine production profiles after exposure of irradiated PN extract in a PN-allergy mouse model. Mice were sensitized to PN extract by intragastric administration on days 0, 1, 2, and 7, and then challenged on day 21. Four weeks later, we evaluated the cytokine production patterns and proliferation responses of splenocytes that were stimulated with intact PN extract, compared to 10 and 50 kGy irradiated PN extract. When the cells were stimulated with 10 kGy of irradiated PN extract, a higher level of production of IFN-{gamma} and IL-10 cytokines was observed. However, stimulation with 50 kGy of irradiated PN extract resulted in a higher level of production of only IFN-{gamma} cytokines. In addition, the Th1/Th2 ratio increased in response to treatment with gamma-irradiated PNs. The results of this study show that the allergenicity of PN extracts could be reduced by gamma irradiation which caused downregulation of Th2 lymphocyte activity in the PN-sensitized mice.

Shock Reactivity Study on Standard and Reduced Sensitivity Rdx of Different Particle Size Distributions  

Science.gov (United States)

Embedded gauge experiments have been performed using a three inch high velocity powder gun to assess the effects of RDX particle size and crystal quality on shock induced reactivity in support of the Combat Safe Insensitive Munitions (CSIM) program. Four monomodal experimental compositions containing 73% solids loading by weight and 27% HTPB binder were tested. The compositions were made using either standard or reduced sensitivity grades of RDX in Class 5 or Class 1 150-300 micron sieve cut particle size classes. Results have shown marked changes in the mode of reaction between the two particle size classes. Both RDX grades at the Class 1 sieve cut particle size distribution showed significant reaction at the shock front as well as behind the front. The Class 5 RDX compositions however showed little reaction at the shock front with rapid growth behind the front. Reaction modes were similar but occurring at greater input pressures for the reduced sensitivity grade of RDX compared to the corresponding particle size distribution standard grade RDX counterpart.

Porcine somatotropin alters insulin response in growing pigs by reducing insulin sensitivity rather than changing responsiveness.  

Science.gov (United States)

Exogenous porcine somatotropin (pST) treatment consistently improves growth performance and reduces fat deposition in pigs, and it is hypothesized that one component of the mechanism is through altering the sensitivity and/or responsiveness to insulin. Therefore, a study was conducted to investigate the effect of pST treatment on whole-body glucose metabolism in response to varying doses of insulin. Eight barrows were surgically prepared with indwelling catheters and randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups (0 or 120 ?g pST/kg BW · d) for 13 d. Whole-body glucose kinetics were measured during infusion of [6-(3)H]-glucose under basal conditions and during hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamps at various insulin infusion rates (7, 28, and 140, and 14, 70, and 280 ng insulin/kg BW · min) and alterations in the dose-response parameters were calculated with nonlinear regression. Treatment with pST increased basal plasma concentrations of glucose (36%; P = 0.005), insulin (276%; P = 0.001), and NEFAs (177%; P = 0.01) and decreased the rate of glucose disappearance (-59%; P = 0.001). The responsiveness (maximum response) for steady state glucose infusion rate to maintain glycemia was not altered by pST (112 vs 106 ?mol/min · kg; P = 0.78), whereas the sensitivity (effective dose at 50% of maximum response) was increased almost 7-fold (1.3 vs 8.7 ng/mL; P = 0.027). Similar responses were observed for rate of glucose disappearance and insulin-dependent glucose utilization. Therefore, pST-induced insulin resistance with regard to whole-body glucose uptake is due to a reduced sensitivity to insulin, rather than a change in responsiveness. PMID:22425435

Effect of reducing groundwater on the retardation of redox-sensitive radionuclides  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Laboratory batch sorption experiments were used to investigate variations in the retardation behavior of redox-sensitive radionuclides. Water-rock compositions were designed to simulate subsurface conditions at the Nevada Test Site (NTS, where a suite of radionuclides were deposited as a result of underground nuclear testing. Experimental redox conditions were controlled by varying the oxygen content inside an enclosed glove box and by adding reductants into the testing solutions. Under atmospheric (oxidizing conditions, radionuclide distribution coefficients varied with the mineralogic composition of the sorbent and the water chemistry. Under reducing conditions, distribution coefficients showed marked increases for 99Tc (from 1.22 at oxidizing to 378 mL/g at mildly reducing conditions and 237Np (an increase from 4.6 to 930 mL/g in devitrified tuff, but much smaller variations in alluvium, carbonate rock, and zeolitic tuff. This effect was particularly important for 99Tc, which tends to be mobile under oxidizing conditions. A review of the literature suggests that iodine sorption should decrease under reducing conditions when I- is the predominant species; this was not consistently observed in batch tests. Overall, sorption of U to alluvium, devitrified tuff, and zeolitic tuff under atmospheric conditions was less than in the glove-box tests. However, the mildly reducing conditions achieved here were not likely to result in substantial U(VI reduction to U(IV. Sorption of Pu was not affected by the decreasing Eh conditions achieved in this study, as the predominant sorbed Pu species in all conditions was expected to be the low-solubility and strongly sorbing Pu(OH4. Depending on the aquifer lithology, the occurrence of reducing conditions along a groundwater flowpath could potentially contribute to the retardation of redox-sensitive radionuclides 99Tc and 237Np, which are commonly identified as long-term dose contributors in the risk assessment in various radionuclide environmental contamination scenarios. The implications for increased sorption of 99Tc and 237Np to devitrified tuff under reducing conditions are significant as the fractured devitrified tuff serves as important water flow path at the NTS and the horizon for a proposed repository to store high-level nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain.

Post-treatment with plant extracts used in Brazilian folk medicine caused a partial reversal of the antiproliferative effect of glyphosate in the Allium cepa test.  

Science.gov (United States)

Species of the genus Psychotria are used for multiple purposes in Brazilian folk medicine, either as water infusions, baths or poultices. This study was aimed to evaluate the genotoxic and antiproliferative effects of infusions of Psychotria brachypoda and P. birotula on the Allium cepa test. Exposure to distilled water was used as a negative control, while exposure to glyphosate was used as a positive control. The interaction of extracts (as a post-treatment) with the effects of glyphosate was also studied. Results showed that glyphosate and the extracts of both P. brachypoda and P. birotula reduced the mitotic index as compared with the negative control (distilled water). Surprisingly, however, both extracts from P. brachypoda and P. birotula caused a partial reversal of the antiproliferative effect of glyphosate when used as a post-treatment. Glyphosate also induced the highest number of cells with chromosomal alterations, which was followed by that of P. birotula extracts. However, the extracts from P. brachypoda did not show any significant genotoxic effect. Post-treatment of glyphosate-treated samples with distilled water allowed a partial recovery of the genotoxic effect of glyphosate, and some of the Psychotria extracts also did so. Notably, post-treatment of glyphosate-treated samples with P. brachypoda extracts induced a statistically significant apoptotic effect. It is concluded that P. brachypoda extracts show antiproliferative effects and are not genotoxic, while extracts of P. birotula show a less potent antiproliferative effect and may induce chromosomal abnormalities. The finding of a partial reversion of the effects of glyphosate by a post-treatment with extracts from both plants should be followed up. PMID:24392578

Elevated serum GGT concentrations predict reduced insulin sensitivity and increased intrahepatic lipids.  

Science.gov (United States)

Elevated serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) concentrations have been related to features of the metabolic syndrome as well as increased risk of cardiovascular and liver disease. More recently, elevated GGT levels were shown to predict development of type 2 diabetes in a longitudinal study from Korea. The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that serum GGT is associated with glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity and beta-cell function in a healthy, non-diabetic Caucasian population from the Tübingen family study. Insulin sensitivity was estimated by oGTT (n = 850) or measured by hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp (n = 245), respectively. A subgroup (n = 70) underwent additional determination of intrahepatic lipid content using 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Serum GGT was positively correlated with two-hour glucose during oGTT (r = 0.15, p < 0.0001) and negatively correlated with insulin sensitivity from oGTT (r = -0.31, p < 0.0001) and clamp (r = -0.27, p < 0.0001). The relationship between GGT and insulin sensitivity remained significant after adjusting for sex, age, BMI, and AST using multivariate regression analysis. Inclusion of serum triglyceride levels as a parameter of lipid metabolism kept the relationship significant in the oGTT group (p < 0.0001), but not in the smaller clamp group (p = 0.11). Additionally, serum GGT was positively correlated with hepatic lipid content (r = 0.49, p < 0.001) independent of sex, age, BMI, AST or serum triglycerides. There was no significant correlation between GGT and the index for beta-cell function after adjusting for age, sex, BMI and insulin sensitivity (p = 0.74). In conclusion, elevated serum GGT levels predict glucose intolerance probably via insulin resistance rather than beta-cell dysfunction. This may be primarily related to hepatic insulin resistance and increased intrahepatic lipids. The association observed between elevated hepatic lipids and reduced insulin sensitivity might explain the increased diabetes risk observed in subjects with elevated serum GGT concentrations. In the absence of overt liver disease, elevated serum GGT concentrations may point the clinician to incipient disturbances in the glucose metabolism. PMID:15952086

Leaching of glyphosate and AMPA under two soil management practices in Burgundy vineyards (Vosne-Romanee, 21-France)  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Some drinking water reservoirs under the vineyards of Burgundy are contaminated with herbicides. Thus the effectiveness of alternative soil management practices, such as grass cover, for reducing the leaching of glyphosate and its metabolite, AMPA, through soils was studied. The leaching of both molecules was studied in structured soil columns under outdoor conditions for 1 year. The soil was managed under two vineyard soil practices: a chemically treated bare calcosol, and a vegetated calcosol. After 680 mm of rainfall, the vegetated calcosol leachates contained lower amounts of glyphosate and AMPA (0.02% and 0.03%, respectively) than the bare calcosol leachates (0.06% and 0.15%, respectively). No glyphosate and only low amounts of AMPA (<0.01%) were extracted from the soil. Glyphosate, and to a greater extent, AMPA, leach through the soils; thus, both molecules may be potential contaminants of groundwater. However, the alternative soil management practice of grass cover could reduce groundwater contamination by the pesticide. - Glyphosate and AMPA leached in greater amounts through a chemically treated bare calcosol than through a vegetated calcosol.

Por isso, com a hipótese de que soja tolerante ao glyphosate necessitaria de uma adição suplementar de manganês, o objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar diferentes manejos na [...] aplicação foliar de manganês sobre alguns parâmetros da soja. Foram desenvolvidos dois experimentos, um no município de Taquaruçú do Sul e outro em Boa Vista das Missões, RS, no ano agrícola 2009/2010. Foram testados os seguintes tratamentos: 1) sem aplicação de glyphosate, com controle manual das plantas daninhas e sem aplicação foliar de manganês (testemunha); 2) sem aplicação de glyphosate, com controle manual das plantas daninhas e uma aplicação foliar de manganês sete dias após esse controle manual das plantas daninhas; 3) com aplicação de glyphosate e sem aplicação foliar de manganês; 4) aplicação de glyphosate em mistura com manganês; 5) aplicação de glyphosate mais uma aplicação foliar de manganês sete dias após aplicação do glyphosate; 6) aplicação de glyphosate mais aplicação foliar de manganês parcelada em duas épocas, aos 7 e 14 dias após aplicação do glyphosate; 7) aplicação de glyphosate e uma aplicação foliar de manganês aos 14 dias após aplicação de glyphosate. A aplicação de glyphosate foi realizada no estádio V5 da soja, na dose de 720g L-1 e.a, enquanto a dose de Mn utilizada foi 2,0L ha-1 de uma formulação contendo 14% (m/v) de manganês solúvel. Não houve diferença significativa entre os tratamentos para as variáveis estatura de plantas e altura de inserção da primeira vagem. A aplicação de glyphosate não afetou a absorção e o teor foliar de manganês e nitrogênio na cultura da soja. Mesmo com aumento no teor foliar de manganês com a suplementação de manganês, não houve incremento na produtividade da soja. Isso mostra que em solos com teores de Mn acima do suficiente a aplicação do herbicida glifosato não requer a suplementação foliar de manganês em soja geneticamente modificada tolerante a esse herbicida.

It was developed two experiments, one at Taquaruçú do Sul and other at Boa Vista das Missões, RS in the year of 2009/2010. It was tested the following treatments: 1) without glyphosate application with manual weed control and without manganese foliar application (untreated check); 2) without glyphosate application with manual weed control and one manganese foliar application at 7 days after this manual weed control; 3) with glyphosate application and without manganese foliar application; 4) glyphosate application in mixture with manganese; 5) glyphosate application added of one manganese foliar application at 7 days after glyphosate application; 6) glyphosate application added of manganese foliar application split in two times, at 7 and 14 days after glyphosate application; 7) glyphosate application and one of manganese foliar application at 14 days after glyphosate application. The glyphosate application was realized in the V5 soybean stage, using 720g L-1 i.e, while the used dose of Mn was 2.0L ha-1 of a formulation with 14% (m/v) of Mn. There were no significant difference among the treatments to plant height and height insertion of the first legume. The glyphosate application did not affect the absorption and the foliar amount of manganese and nitrogen in soybean crop. Even with the increase in foliar manganese amount, there was no increasing in soybean productivity. This shows that in soils with Mn levels above of the suffic

Synthesis of cyclodextrin-reduced graphene oxide hybrid nanosheets for sensitivity enhanced electrochemical determination of diethylstilbestrol  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Highlights: ? ?-CD-RGO hybrid nanosheets were successfully prepared by using L-AA as the reducing agent under a mild condition. ? ?-CD-RGO/GCE greatly enhanced the electrochemical response of diethylstilbestrol (DES). ? DES can be detected with wide linear range and a low detection limit. ? ?-CD-RGO/GCE can be applied in real milk samples analysis with satisfactory results. - Abstract: ?-Cyclodextrin functionalized reduced graphene oxide hybrid nanosheets (?-CD-RGO) were successfully prepared by using L-ascorbic acid (L-AA) as the reducing agent under a mild condition and used as enhanced material for sensitivity determination of diethylstilbestrol (DES). In 0.1 M PBS (pH 7.0), the redox peak currents of DES increased significantly on ?-CD-RGO modified glassy carbon electrode (?-CD-RGO/GCE), suggesting that the composite film not only shows excellent electronic properties of RGO sheets but also exhibits high supramolecular recognition capability of ?-CD. The experimental conditions were optimized and the kinetic parameters were investigated. Under the optimal conditions, the reduction peak current of DES increased linearly with increasing the concentration in the range from 0.01 to 13 ?M with the detection limit of 4 nM (S/N = 3). The developed electrochemical sensor exhibited high selectivity, good stability and reproducibility, and also successfully determined DES in milk samples with satisfactory results.

Effectiveness of glyphosate and imazamox on the control of the invasive cordgrass Spartina densiflora.  

Science.gov (United States)

The south-American cordgrass, Spartina densiflora, has become the dominant plant species on recent tidal marsh restorations in the Doñana National Park (SW Spain). We examined the effect of different doses of glyphosate (720-7200 g a.i. ha(-1)) and imazamox (20-68 g a.i. ha(-1)) on growth and photosynthetic apparatus of S. densiflora. Imazamox had no effect on neither on growth nor photosynthetic apparatus of S. densiflora. On the contrary, glyphosate inhibited photochemical efficiency of photosynthesis from day one. Net photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance and photosynthetic pigments and the number of new tillers were reduced. Glyphosate at high doses (ca. 7200 g a.i. ha(-1)) could be an appropriate method of control, since it has a negative effect over the photosynthetic apparatus and growth of S. densiflora. Furthermore, glyphosate and its main metabolite, AMPA, were not extracted from the soil, since they were retained by the very high iron and aluminum oxide content of this soil. PMID:19577295

The use of BMED for glyphosate recovery from glyphosate neutralization liquor in view of zero discharge.  

Science.gov (United States)

Alkaline glyphosate neutralization liquors containing a high salinity pose a severe environmental pollution problem by the pesticide industry. However, there is a high potential for glyphosate recovery due to the high concentration of glyphosate in the neutralization liquors. In the study, a three-compartment bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BMED) process was applied on pilot scale for the recovery of glyphosate and the production of base/acid with high concentration in view of zero discharge of wastewater. The experimental results demonstrate that BMED can remove 99.0% of NaCl from the feed solution and transform this fraction into HCl and NaOH with high concentration and purity. This is recycled for the hydrolysis reaction of the intermediate product generated by the means of the Mannich reaction of paraformaldehyde, glycine and dimethylphosphite catalyzed by triethylamine in the presence of HCl and reclamation of the triethylamine catalyst during the production process of glyphosate. The recovery of glyphosate in the feed solution was over 96%, which is acceptable for industrial production. The current efficiency for producing NaOH with a concentration of 2.0 mol L(-1) is above 67% and the corresponding energy consumption is 2.97 kWh kg(-1) at a current density of 60 mA cm(-2). The current efficiency increases and energy consumption decreases as the current density decreases, to 87.13% and 2.37 kWh kg(-1), respectively, at a current density of 30 mA cm(-2). Thus, BMED has a high potential for desalination of glyphosate neutralization liquor and glyphosate recovery, aiming at zero discharge and resource recycling in industrial application. PMID:23832058

Highly sensitive micromachined capacitive pressure sensor with reduced hysteresis and low parasitic capacitance  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

This paper describes the design and fabrication of a capacitive pressure sensor that has a large capacitance signal and a high sensitivity of 76 pF/bar in touch mode operation. Due to the large signal, problems with parasitic capacitances are avoided and hence it is possible to integrate the sensor with a discrete components electronics circuit for signal conditioning. Using an AC bridge electronics circuit a resolution of 8 mV/mbar is achieved. The large signal is obtained due to a novel membrane structure utilizing closely packed hexagonal elements. The sensor is fabricated in a process based on fusion bonding to create vacuum cavities. The exposed part of the sensor is perfectly flat such that it can be coated with corrosion resistant thin films. Hysteresis is an inherent problem in touch mode capacitive pressure sensors and a technique to significantly reduce it is presented.

Hybrid reflection-transmission surface light-scattering instrument with reduced sensitivity to surface sloshing.  

Science.gov (United States)

A hybrid reflection-transmission surface light-scattering instrumental design is presented, examined theoretically, and tested experimentally. The purpose of the design is to reduce the sensitivity of the instrument to vibration in general and surface sloshing in particular while sacrificing little performance. Traditional optical arrangements and two new optical configurations with varying trade-offs between slosh resistance and instrumental simplicity and accuracy are examined by use of Fourier optics methods. The most promising design was constructed and tested with acetone, ethanol, and water as subject fluids. The test involved backcalculation of the wave number of the capillary wave examined with the known physical parameters for the test fluids. The agreement of the computed wave number was +/-1.4%.

Enthalpic partitioning of the reduced temperature sensitivity of O2 binding in bovine hemoglobin  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

The oxygenation enthalpy of the heme groups of hemoglobin (Hb) is inherently exothermic, resulting in decreased Hb-O2 affinity with rising temperature. However, oxygenation is coupled with endothermic dissociation of allosteric effectors (e.g. protons, chloride ions and organic phosphates) from the protein moiety, which thus reduces the overall oxygenation enthalpy. The evolution of Hbs with reduced temperature sensitivity ostensibly safeguards O2 unloading in cold extremities of regionally-heterothermic vertebrates permitting energy-saving reductions in heat loss. Ungulate (e.g. bovine) Hbs have long served as a model system in this regard in that they exhibit numerically low oxygenation enthalpies that are thought to correlate with the presence of an additional Cl(-) binding site (compared to human Hb) comprised of three cationic residues at positions 8, 76 and 77 of the ?-chains of Hb. However, ungulate Hbs also exhibit distinctive amino acid exchanges at the N-termini of the ?-chains that stabilize the low-affinity deoxystructure of the Hb, mimicking the action of organic phosphates. In order to assess the relative contributions from these two effects, we measured the temperature sensitivity of Hb-O2 affinity in bovine and human Hbs in the absence and presence of Cl(-) ions under strictly controlled pH conditions. The data indicate that Cl(-)-binding accounts for a minority (~30%) of the total reduction in the oxygenation enthalpy manifested in bovine compared to human Hb, whereas the majority of this reduction is ascribable to structural differences, including increased ?-chain hydrophobicity that would increase the heat of oxygenation-linked conformational change in bovine Hb.

Reduced nickel sensitivity in young Danish women following regulation of nickel exposure.  

Science.gov (United States)

In most western countries, nickel is the most common contact allergen among young women. In 1991, Denmark implemented a statutory order calling for the reduction of exposure to nickel in nickel-plated items in close contact with the skin. In a retrospective analysis, a comparison is made of the number of positive patch tests to nickel seen in a private practice of dermatology before and after this statutory order was implemented. From 1 January 1986 to 31 December 1989, 35 of 1135 (3.1%) men patch tested and 628 of 3024 (20.8%) women patch tested had positive reactions to nickel. From 1 January 1996 to 31 December 1999, 48 of 1104 (4.3%) men and 424 of 2193 (19.3%) women had positive patch tests to nickel. During the 1st period, 155 of 702 women under the age of 20 (22.1%) had positive patch tests to nickel, compared to 54 of 324 (16.7%) during the second period (p<0.05). The most likely explanations of this decrease in nickel sensitivity are reduced exposure to nickel and increased public awareness of the risk of nickel sensitization. PMID:11553121

New C$_{6}$D$_{6}$ detectors: reduced neutron sensitivity and improved safety  

CERN Document Server

During the 2011 data measurement campaign at n_TOF, the liquid scintillator detectors developed at FZK-Karlsruhe (hereafter named K6D6, [1]) and used with success along 10 years have shown ageing problems, mainly related to liquid leakage. The mould used to produce the carbon fiber structure, containing the liquid and the detection elements, was not available anymore and the technician involved in its construction was retired. Once decided to proceed to the production of new detectors (L6D6 in the following) two major items have been identified: - The detector setup must be able to work in the new class A experimental area (safety requirements advise to avoid the use of the old K6D6 in this area). - If possible, it is useful to reduce the neutron sensitivity, with the aim to have a liquid scintillator detector with very low neutron sensitivity (improving the already high performing K6D6).

Glyphosate induces human breast cancer cells growth via estrogen receptors.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate is an active ingredient of the most widely used herbicide and it is believed to be less toxic than other pesticides. However, several recent studies showed its potential adverse health effects to humans as it may be an endocrine disruptor. This study focuses on the effects of pure glyphosate on estrogen receptors (ERs) mediated transcriptional activity and their expressions. Glyphosate exerted proliferative effects only in human hormone-dependent breast cancer, T47D cells, but not in hormone-independent breast cancer, MDA-MB231 cells, at 10?¹² to 10??M in estrogen withdrawal condition. The proliferative concentrations of glyphosate that induced the activation of estrogen response element (ERE) transcription activity were 5-13 fold of control in T47D-KBluc cells and this activation was inhibited by an estrogen antagonist, ICI 182780, indicating that the estrogenic activity of glyphosate was mediated via ERs. Furthermore, glyphosate also altered both ER? and ? expression. These results indicated that low and environmentally relevant concentrations of glyphosate possessed estrogenic activity. Glyphosate-based herbicides are widely used for soybean cultivation, and our results also found that there was an additive estrogenic effect between glyphosate and genistein, a phytoestrogen in soybeans. However, these additive effects of glyphosate contamination in soybeans need further animal study. PMID:23756170

Características fisiológicas de biótipos de Conyza bonariensis Resistentes ao glyphosate cultivados sob competição / Physiological characteristics of Conyza bonariensis biotypes resistant to glyphosate cultivated under competition  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese A resistência de plantas daninhas a herbicidas está relacionada a modificações metabólicas, enzimáticas, fisiológicas e/ou anatômicas. Aliado a essas mudanças, a planta pode aumentar ou diminuir as atividades fisiológicas, o que, consequentemente, pode afetar o seu crescimento e desenvolvimento. Ass [...] im, biótipos resistentes podem apresentar melhor adaptação ecológica em ambientes de cultivo e tornar-se predominantes devido à eliminação das plantas sensíveis. Em condições de seleção natural, biótipos com maior adaptação ecológica apresentam maior produção que biótipos menos adaptados. Neste trabalho, avaliou-se o efeito da competição em características fisiológicas de biótipos de Conyza bonariensis suscetíveis e resistentes ao herbicida glyphosate. Os tratamentos constaram de plantas de dois biótipos de C. bonariensis - um comprovadamente resistente e um suscetível ao glyphosate, dispostas em modelo aditivo de estudo de competição. No centro da unidade experimental foram semeadas três sementes do biótipo considerado como o tratamento: resistente (R) ou suscetível (S), sendo essa planta rodeada por 0 (testemunha sem competição), 1, 2, 3, 4, ou 5 plantas do biótipo oposto. O biótipo suscetível apresentou-se mais tolerante à competição com plantas do biótipo oposto no tocante às características fisiológicas avaliadas. O biótipo resistente de buva apresenta desvantagem fisiológica em relação ao suscetível e, consequentemente, menor potencial de adaptabilidade na ausência do fator de seleção - o herbicida glyphosate. Abstract in english The resistance of weeds to herbicides is related to metabolic, enzymatic, physiological and anatomical changes. Coupled with these changes, plants can increase or decrease their physiological activities, which can affect their growth and development. Thus, resistant biotypes may have a higher ecolog [...] ical adaptation in these environments and become predominant due to the elimination of sensitive plants. Under natural selection conditions, biotypes with greater ecological adaptation show higher production than less adapted biotypes. Thus, the aim of this work was to assess the effect of competition on the physiological characteristics of Conyza bonariensis biotypes susceptible and resistant to the herbicide glyphosate. The treatments consisted of plants of two biotypes of C. bonariensis - one proven to be resistant and one susceptible to glyphosate. In the center of the experimental unit, three seeds of the C. bonariensis biotype considered for treatment - resistant (R) or susceptible (S) - were sown , with the plant being surrounded by 0 (no competition), 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 plants of the opposite biotype. The susceptible biotype presented a higher tolerance to competition with plants of the opposite biotype regarding the physiological characteristics evaluated. The resistant biotype of C. bonariensis has a physiological disadvantage compared to the susceptible one and, therefore, less potential for adaptability in the absence of the selection factor - the herbicide glyphosate.

Toxicity of formulated glyphosate (glyphos) and cosmo-flux to larval Colombian frogs 1. Laboratory acute toxicity.  

Science.gov (United States)

The spraying of coca (Erythroxylum coca) with glyphosate in Colombia has raised concerns about possible impacts on amphibians. There are few toxicity data for species other than those from temperate regions, and these have not been generated with the combination of formulated glyphosate (Glyphos) and the adjuvant, Cosmo-Flux (coca mix) as used in coca control in Colombia. In order to characterize toxicity of the spray mixture to frogs from Colombia, Gosner stage-25 tadpoles of Scinax ruber, Dendropophus microcephalus, Hypsiboas crepitans, Rhinella granulosa, Rhinella marina, Rhinella typhonius, Centrolene prosoblepon, and Engystomops pustulosus were exposed to the coca mix at concentrations of glyphosate ranging from 1 to 4.2 mg a.e./L diluted in dechlorinated tap water in glass containers. Cosmo-Flux was added to Glyphos in the proportion of 2.3% v/v, as used in aerial application for coca control. Exposures were for 96 h at 23 +/- 1.5 degrees C with 12:12-h light/dark cycle. Test solutions were renewed every 24 h. Concentrations, measured within the first hour and at 24 and 96 h using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) (Abraxis, LLC), ranged from 70 to 130% of nominal values. LC50 values ranged from 1200 to 2780 microg glyphosate acid equivalents (a.e.)/L for the 8 species tested. Data suggest that sensitivity to Roundup-type formulations of glyphosate in these species is similar to that observed in other tropical and temperate species. In addition, sensitivity of larval amphibians to Roundup-type formulations spans a relatively narrow range. Finally, toxicity of the mixture as used to spray coca was likely driven by the surfactant in the glyphosate formulation, as the addition of Cosmo-Flux did not enhance toxicity above those reported for Vision = Roundup.

Effects of field-realistic doses of glyphosate on honeybee appetitive behaviour.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate (GLY) is a broad-spectrum herbicide used for weed control. The sub-lethal impact of GLY on non-target organisms such as insect pollinators has not yet been evaluated. Apis mellifera is the main pollinator in agricultural environments and is a well-known model for behavioural research. Honeybees are also accurate biosensors of environmental pollutants and their appetitive behavioural response is a suitable tool with which to test sub-lethal effects of agrochemicals. We studied the effects of field-realistic doses of GLY on honeybees exposed chronically or acutely to the herbicide. We focused on sucrose sensitivity, elemental and non-elemental associative olfactory conditioning of the proboscis extension response (PER), and foraging-related behaviour. We found a reduced sensitivity to sucrose and learning performance for the groups chronically exposed to GLY concentrations within the range of recommended doses. When olfactory PER conditioning was performed with sucrose reward with the same GLY concentrations (acute exposure), elemental learning and short-term memory retention decreased significantly compared with controls. Non-elemental associative learning was also impaired by an acute exposure to GLY traces. Altogether, these results imply that GLY at concentrations found in agro-ecosystems as a result of standard spraying can reduce sensitivity to nectar reward and impair associative learning in honeybees. However, no effect on foraging-related behaviour was found. Therefore, we speculate that successful forager bees could become a source of constant inflow of nectar with GLY traces that could then be distributed among nestmates, stored in the hive and have long-term negative consequences on colony performance.

High-sensitive C-reactive protein is associated with reduced lung function in young adults  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

Systemic inflammation has been associated with reduced lung function. However, data on the interrelationships between lung function and inflammation are sparse, and it is not clear if low-grade inflammation leads to reduced lung function. Associations between high-sensitive C-reactive protein (CRP) and spirometric lung function were assessed in a population-based cohort of approximately 1,000 Danes aged 20 yrs. In males, the average decline in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV(1)) in the highest CRP quintile was 23 mL.yr(-1) versus 1.6 mL.yr(-1) in the lowest quintile. In females, the average decline was 6.2 mL.yr(-1) in the highest CRP quintile versus an increase of 1.8 mL.yr(-1) in the lowest CRP quintile. In a multiple regression analysis adjusted for sex, body mass index, cardiorespiratory fitness, smoking, asthma, airway hyperresponsiveness and serum eosinophil cationic protein, higher levels of CRP at age 20 yrs were associated with a greater reduction in both FEV(1) and forced vital capacity between ages 20 and 29 yrs. The findings show that higher levels of C-reactive protein in young adults are associated with subsequent decline in lung function, suggesting that low-grade systemic inflammation in young adulthood may lead to impaired lung function independently of the effects of smoking, obesity, cardiorespiratory fitness, asthma and eosinophilic inflammation.

Manejo de Conyza bonariensis resistente ao herbicida glyphosate / Management of Glyphosate-resistant Conyza bonariensis  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese C. bonariensis (Conyza bonariensis) é uma planta daninha da família Asteraceae, amplamente distribuída no Brasil, com presença marcante nos Estados do Rio Grande do Sul e do Paraná. Biótipos de C. bonariensis resistentes ao glyphosate foram identificados nos Estados do Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná e Sã [...] o Paulo. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o efeito de diferentes manejos de inverno e na pré-semeadura da soja sobre a população de plantas de C. bonariensis resistente ao herbicida glyphosate. Os resultados evidenciaram que a população de C. bonariensis é maior em áreas mantidas sem cultivo (pousio) do que naquelas áreas cultivadas com trigo ou aveia-preta durante o inverno. Observou-se que o trigo e a aveia-preta exercem efeito supressor sobre a população de C. bonariensis, proporcionando maior facilidade de controle com herbicida na pré-semeadura da cultura usada em sucessão. O controle de C. bonariensis resistente ao herbicida glyphosate foi satisfatório quando se utilizaram herbicidas pós-emergentes na cultura do trigo e glyphosate + 2,4-D ou glyphosate + diuron + paraquat na pré-semeadura da soja. Abstract in english Horseweed (Conyza bonariensis), which belongs to the Asteraceae family, is a weed species widely spread in Brazil. Horseweed biotypes resistant to glyphosate, the main herbicide used in Roundup Ready soybean fields, were identified in the states of Rio Grande do Sul and Parana. The aim of this study [...] was to evaluate the effect of different winter and pre-sowing management techniques on soybean plant population of C. bonariensis resistant to glyphosate. The results showed that the population of C. bonariensis is larger in areas maintained fallow than in areas planted with wheat or oats during the winter. Wheat and oats were found to exert a suppressive effect on the population of C. bonariensis, providing greater ease of control with herbicide before seeding in the culture used in succession. The control of glyphosate-resistant C. bonariensis was satisfactory when post-emergence herbicides were used in wheat crop and glyphosate and 2,4-D or glyphosate paraquat diuron in pre-planting soybeans.

Effects of glyphosate on cholinesterase activity of the mussel Perna perna and the fish Danio rerio and Jenynsia multidentata: in vitro studies.  

Science.gov (United States)

Although the herbicide glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine] is not classified as an acethylcholinesterase inhibitor, some studies have reported reduction in the acethylcolinesterase activity after in vivo exposure to both its pure form and its commercial formulations. Considering this controversy, the objective of the present study was to investigate, in vitro, the effects of glyphosate exposure on cholinesterase activity of the brown mussel Perna perna and of two fish species: zebrafish Danio rerio and onesided livebearer Jenynsia multidentata. For this purpose, samples of different tissues (brain and muscle for fish; gills and muscle for mussel) were homogenized and pre-incubated with different glyphosate concentrations before cholinesterase activity determination. Results demonstrated that cholinesterase from different fractions of all species tested was inhibited by glyphosate. The concentrations of glyphosate that inhibits 50% of cholinesterase activity (IC50) ranged from 0.62 mM for P. perna muscle to 8.43 mM for J. multidentata brain. According to this, cholinesterase from mussel seems to be more sensitive to glyphosate exposure than those from the fish D. rerio and J. multidentata. PMID:23411353

Side-effects of glyphosate on the life parameters of Eriopis connexa (Coleoptera: Coccinelidae) in Argentina.  

Science.gov (United States)

In Argentina, transgenic soybean crop (Roundup Ready, RR) has undergone a major expansion over the last 15 years, with the consequent increase of glyphosate applications, a broad-spectrum and post emergence herbicide. Soybean crops are inhabited by several arthropods. Eriopis connexa Germar (Coleoptera: Coccinelidae) is a predator associated to soybean soft-bodies pest and have a Neotropical distribution. Nowadays, it is being considered a potentially biological control agent in South America. The objectives of this work were to evaluate the side-effects of glyphosate on larvae (third instar) and adults of this predator. Commercial compound and the maximum registered concentrations for field use were employed: GlifoGlex 48 (48% glyphosate, 192 mg a.i./litre, Gleba Argentina S.A.). The exposure was by ingestion through the treated prey (Rophalosiphum padi) or by drinking treated water during 48 h for treatment of the adult. The herbicide solutions were prepared using distilled water as solvent. The bioassays were carried out in the laboratory under controlled conditions: 23 +/- 0.5 degrees C, 75 +/- 5% RH and 16:8 (L:D) of photoperiod. Development time, weight of pupae, adult emergence, pre-oviposition period, fecundity and fertility were evaluated as endpoints. Larvae from glyphosate treatment molted earlier than controls. In addition, the weight of pupae, longevity, fecundity and fertility were drastically reduced in treated organisms. The reductions were more drastic when the treatments were performed at the third larval stage than as adult. The reproduction capacity of the predator was the most affected parameter and could be related to a hormonal disruption by glyphosate in the treated organisms. This work can confirm the deleterious effects of this herbicide on beneficial organisms. Also, it agrees with prior studies carried out on other predators associated to soybean pest, such as Chrysoperla externa (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) and Alpaida veniliae (Araneae: Araneidae).

An Assessment of the Impact of Glyphosate and 2,4-D Amine Salt on Weeds in Niger  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available An experiment was carried out to investigate the efficacy of two herbicides, viz., glyphosate and 2,4- D amine salt at varying doses for the control of the main noxious weeds. The lowest application rate (0.5l per ha of 2,4-D and 2l per ha of glyphosate of both herbicides gave a control of shoot grow th and drastically reduced the green biomass compared to unweeded plots at different time intervals after the application. There was no re-growth up to nine days after spraying in all treated plots. The highest control of the density of noxious weeds has been obtained with 2,4-D amine salt at the dose of 1.5 l per ha and glyphosate at the dose of 4l per ha in six days after treatment; the reduction rate was more than 85%. Data on green biomass also showed drastic reduction following herbicide application.

Differential response of two sourgrass populations to glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The repetitive use of glyphosate may cause increase on the resistance of sourgrass (Digitaria insularis through mechanisms of natural selection. The aim of this study was to verify the response of two populations of sourgrass (one collected from nonagricultural area and the other one from area suspected of glyphosate resistance to increasing doses of glyphosate. The experimental design was completely randomized with four repetitions. For both populations, glyphosate was sprayed at 10 doses (0D, D/16, D/8, D/4, D/2, D, 2D, 4D, 8D, and 16D; so that D is the dose of 1.08 kg e.a. ha-1. The treatments were sprayed when the plants had shown 3-5 tillers. The population collected in the nonagricultural area was slightly more sensible to the herbicide glyphosate than the population originated from an area where the herbicide application is common, not indicating glyphosate resistance.

An important prerequisite for low dose applications gaining significance is a high efficiency and reliability of effects. This, however, seems to be a major constraint, especially regarding the approach of increasing yield by glyphosate hormesis. Glyphosate is marketed in various formulations, but potential disparities in low dose re...

High operating temperature IR-modules with reduced pitch for SWaP sensitive applications  

Science.gov (United States)

Low size, weight and power (SWaP) are the most critical requirements for portable thermal imagers like weapon sights or handheld observations devices. On the other hand due to current asymmetrical conflicts there are high requirements for the e/o performance of these devices providing the ability to distinguish between combatants and non-combatants in adequate ranges. Despite of all the success with uncooled technology, such requirements usually still require cooled detectors. AIM has developed a family of thermal weapon sights called HuntIR and RangIR based on high performance cooled IR-modules which are used e.g. in the infantryman of the future program of the German army (IdZ). The specific capability of these devices is a high ID range >1500m for tank targets being suitable in use as thermal sights for .50 cal rifles like the G82, targeting units for the 40mm AGL or for night observation. While such ranges sound far beyond the operational needs in urban operations, the a.m. specific needs of asymmetric warfare require sometimes even more range performance. High operating temperature (HOT) is introduced in the AIM MCT 640x512/15?m MWIR or LWIR modules for further reduction of cooler power consumption, shorter cooldown times and higher MTTF. As a key component to keep performance while further reducing SWaP AIM is developing a new cooled MCT IR-module with reduced pitch of 12 ?m operating at a temperature >120 K. The module will provide full TV format with 640x480 elements sensitive in the MWIR spectral band. The paper will show recent results of AIM IR-modules with high operating temperature and the impact of design regarding the IR-module itself and thermal sights making use of it.

Mutation of NRAS but not KRAS significantly reduces myeloma sensitivity to single-agent bortezomib therapy.  

Science.gov (United States)

Various translocations and mutations have been identified in myeloma, and certain aberrations, such as t(4;14) and del17, are linked with disease prognosis. To investigate mutational prevalence in myeloma and associations between mutations and patient outcomes, we tested a panel of 41 known oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in tumor samples from 133 relapsed myeloma patients participating in phase 2 or 3 clinical trials of bortezomib. DNA mutations were identified in 14 genes. BRAF as well as RAS genes were mutated in a large proportion of cases (45.9%) and these mutations were mutually exclusive. New recurrent mutations were also identified, including in the PDGFRA and JAK3 genes. NRAS mutations were associated with a significantly lower response rate to single-agent bortezomib (7% vs 53% in patients with mutant vs wild-type NRAS, P = .00116, Bonferroni-corrected P = .016), as well as shorter time to progression in bortezomib-treated patients (P = .0058, Bonferroni-corrected P = .012). However, NRAS mutation did not impact outcome in patients treated with high-dose dexamethasone. KRAS mutation did not reduce sensitivity to bortezomib or dexamethasone. These findings identify a significant clinical impact of NRAS mutation in myeloma and demonstrate a clear example of functional differences between the KRAS and NRAS oncogenes. PMID:24335104

Enhanced sensitivity in H photofragment detection by two-color reduced-Doppler ion imaging  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Two-color reduced-Doppler (TCRD) and one-color velocity map imaging (VMI) were used for probing H atom photofragments resulting from the ?243.1 nm photodissociation of pyrrole. The velocity components of the H photofragments were probed by employing two counterpropagating beams at close and fixed wavelengths of 243.15 and 243.12 nm in TCRD and a single beam at ?243.1 nm, scanned across the Doppler profile in VMI. The TCRD imaging enabled probing of the entire velocity distribution in a single pulse, resulting in enhanced ionization efficiency, as well as improved sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio. These advantages were utilized for studying the pyrrole photodissociation at ?243.1 and 225 nm, where the latter wavelength provided only a slight increase in the H yield over the self-signal from the probe beams. The TCRD imaging enabled obtaining high quality H+ images, even for the low H photofragment yields formed in the 225 nm photolysis process, and allowed determining the velocity distributions and anisotropy parameters and getting insight into pyrrole photodissociation

Detonation and Shock Reactivity Properties of Explosives Containing RDX and Reduced Sensitivity RDX  

Science.gov (United States)

The detonation and shock reactivity properties of two monomodal research explosives were measured to assess how these properties change when different quality RDX is used. One explosive contained class 1 (coarse) RDX and HTPB binder; the other explosive contained reduced sensitivity (high quality) class 1 RDX (I-RDX) and HTPB binder. Experiments preformed included wave curvature, rate stick and flyer plate experiments. Wave curvature and rate stick experiments indicate that the reaction zone length is shorter for the explosive containing RDX. Our results show that decrement and wave curvature results are bounded by the results of Moulard and coworkers^1,2 for similar explosives containing fine and very coarse RDX particles. We will also present work of ongoing shock reactivity experiments. In these experiments, a flyer impacts an explosive sample containing multiple embedded pressure gauges. Analyses of the pressure gauge records allow us to determine shock reactivity trends for each explosive. ^1Moulard, H., Kury, J.W., Delclos, A., Proceedings of Eighth Symposium (International) on Detonation, Albuquerque, NM, 1985, pg. 902-913. ^2 Moulard, H., Proceedings of the Ninth Symposium (International) on Detonation, Portland, Oregon, 1989, pg. 18-24.

Moderately reduced graphene oxide as transparent counter electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Moderately reduced graphene oxide (GO) films were fabricated by simple and fast thermal treatment of solution processed GO, and their application as an alternative to conventional Pt counter electrode in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) was investigated. GO without thermal treatment and thermally treated GO at 150 °C showed low efficiency of ?0.5%, whereas cell performance was significantly improved by applying thermal treatment over 250 °C. In particular, the DSSC with GO thermally treated at 350 °C exhibited the highest performance with open-circuit voltage (VOC) of 0.66 V, short-circuit current density (JSC) of 16.35 mA/cm2, F.F. of 33.33%, and overall power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 3.60%. Moderate reduction of GO by simple thermal treatment over 250 °C was confirmed through the measurements of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscope (AFM). Enhancement of efficiency after high temperature thermal treatment might be attributed to the improved electrical conductivities and higher catalytic activities, resulting from the reduction of GO.

Manejo de tiririca e trapoeraba com glyphosate em ambientes sombreados / Commelina benghalensis and Cyperus rotundus treated with glyphosate in shaded environments  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Plantas daninhas mantidas em ambientes com redução da intensidade luminosa apresentam alterações morfofisiológicas marcantes, que podem alterar seu comportamento reprodutivo e a tolerância a herbicidas aplicados em pós-emergência. Objetivou-se neste estudo avaliar a eficiência de doses de glyphosate [...] no manejo da trapoeraba (Commelina benghalensis) e da tiririca (Cyperus rotundus) cultivadas em diferentes níveis de sombreamento. O trabalho foi composto por dois ensaios, referentes a cada uma das espécies, com o mesmo delineamento experimental, sendo constituídos em esquema fatorial 5 x 3, com cinco doses de herbicida (0, 540, 810, 1.080 ou 1.350 g ha-1 de glyphosate), três ambientes de cultivo (0, 30 ou 50% de sombra) e quatro repetições. As parcelas experimentais foram compostas por um vaso com duas plantas de tiririca ou de trapoeraba. As avaliações de controle ocorreram aos 10, 20 e 30 dias após a aplicação (DAA), por meio de observações visuais. Aos 30 DAA, foi determinada a massa seca da parte aérea de cada espécie. A produtividade de tubérculos foi observada pela contagem direta desses propágulos presentes nas raízes das plantas de tiririca. Já a sua viabilidade foi avaliada por teste de germinação em leito de areia e por tetrazólio no caso dos não germinados. O controle das espécies foi mais eficiente em ambientes sombreados, contribuindo para a redução de até 25% da dose recomendada para ambas, obtendo-se controle de 81% para trapoeraba e 100% para tiririca. Já a matéria seca da parte aérea, a produtividade e a viabilidade dos tubérculos foram afetadas pelo aumento do nível de sombra e pela dose de glyphosate. A diminuição da intensidade luminosa - comum no sub-bosque de culturas arbóreas e arbustivas ou quando do adensamento de cultivos - representa prática interessante na supressão da trapoeraba e da tiririca e potencializa a ação de controle do glyphosate. Abstract in english Weeds maintained in reduced light intensity environments present remarkable morpho-physiological changes that may alter their reproductive behavior and tolerance to post-emergence herbicides. Our goal was to evaluate the efficiency of glyphosate doses in the management of Commelina benghalensis and [...] Cyperus rotundus grown at different levels of shading. The work consisted of two trials for each species with the same experimental design, in a 5 x 3 factorial design with five herbicide doses (0, 540, 810, 1.080, and 1.350 gha-1 of glyphosate), three cultivation environments (0, 30, or 50% of shading) and four replicates. Experimental plots consisted of a vase with two plants of either C. benghalensis or C. rotundus. Control evaluations were carried out 10, 20, and 30 days after application (DAA) through visual observations. Tuber productivity was verified by direct counting of these propagules present in the roots of C. rotundus plants, while tuber viability was evaluated by germination test in a sand bed, and by tetrazolium, for the non-germinated tubers. Species control was more efficient in shade environments, contributing to a reduction of up to 25% of the recommended dose for the treated species, and resulting in a control of 81% for C. benghalensis and 100% for C. rotundus. Aerial part dry biomass and productivity and viability of tubers were affected by increase in shade level and glyphosate dose. Reduced light intensity - common in the under-story of tree and shrub cultures or in culture density - is an interesting practice aiming at suppressing C. benghalensis and C. rotundus, acting as a potential control of glyphosate.

Full Text Available Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar o grau de tolerância dos genótipos diploides e tetraploides de L. multiflorum (azevém ao herbicida glyphosate. Para isso, foram instalados quatro experimentos, sendo um para cada estádio fenológico do azevém (duas folhas, quatro perfilhos, pré-florescimento e formação de grãos. Utilizou-se delineamento em blocos casualizados com arranjo fatorial 2 x 6 (dois genótipos e seis doses do herbicida glyphosate: 240, 480, 960, 1.920, 3.840 e 7.680 g e.a. ha-1 e uma testemunha sem aplicação de glyphosate, com quatro repetições. Os parâmetros analisados foram porcentagem de controle e fitomassa seca da parte aérea das plantas. Os resultados foram submetidos à análise de variância e, em seguida, ajustados para modelo de curva de dose-resposta do tipo logística, sendo desses modelos calculados valores de controle correspondentes a 50, 80, 90 e 99%. Os genótipos de azevém diploide apresentaram suscetibilidade diferencial ao herbicida glyphosate, sendo o genótipo tetraploide mais tolerante ao herbicida que o diploide. O grau diferencial de tolerância, medido pelo fator de tolerância diferencial entre os genótipos, foi de 1,6 vez a dose de glyphosate no genótipo tetraploide em relação ao diploide. Os estádios fenológicos de desenvolvimento das plantas de ambos os genótipos afetaram o grau de tolerância ao glyphosate.

The parameters analyzed were control percentage and shoot dry biomass. Results were submitted to analysis of variance and subsequently adjusted to non-linear log of dose-response curves, and from these models control values were calculated at 50, 80, 90 and 99%. The Italian ryegrass genotypes presented differential susceptibility to the herbicide glyphosate, with the tetraploid genotype being more tolerant to the herbicide than the diploid. The degree of differential tolerance, measured by the differential tolerance factor between the genotypes, is 1.6 times the glyphosate dose in the tetraploid genotype compared to the diploid genotype. The phenological stages of plant development of both the genotypes studied affected the degree of tolerance to glyphosate. The variable shoot dry biomass presented the same differential tendency between the diploid and tetraploid genotypes presented by the parameter visual control percentage.

Reduced baroreflex sensitivity in alcoholic cirrhosis: relations to hemodynamics and humoral systems.  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

In cirrhosis, arterial vasodilatation leads to central hypovolemia and activation of the sympathetic nervous and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systems. As the liver disease and circulatory dysfunction may affect baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), we assessed BRS in a large group of patients with cirrhosis and in controls who were all supine and some after 60 degrees passive head-up and 30 degrees head-down tilting in relation to central hemodynamics and activity of the sympathetic nervous and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systems. One-hundred and five patients (Child classes A/B/C: 21/55/29) and 25 (n=11 + 14) controls underwent a full hemodynamic investigation. BRS was assessed by cross-spectral analysis of variabilities between blood pressure and heart rate time series. The median BRS was significantly lower in the supine cirrhotic patients, 3.7 (range 0.3-30.7) ms/mmHg than in matched controls (n=11): 14.3 (6.1-23.6) ms/mmHg, P<0.001. A stepwise multiple-regression analysis revealed that serum sodium (P=0.044), heart rate (P=0.027), and central circulation time (P=0.034) independently correlated with BRS. Head-down tilting had no effects on BRS, but, after head-up tilting, BRS was similar in the patients (n=23) and controls (n=14). In conclusion, BRS is reduced in cirrhosis in the supine position and relates to various aspects of cardiovascular dysfunction, but no further reduction was observed in parallel with the amelioration of the hyperdynamic circulation after head-up tilting. The results indicate that liver dysfunction and compensatory mechanisms to vasodilatation may be involved in the low BRS, which may contribute to poor cardiovascular adaptation in cirrhosis.

Central fuel banking to reduce the number of proliferation sensitive enrichment activities  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Central fuel banking is a complex international political, economic and technical concept that aims to reduce uncontrolled spreading of uranium enrichment technology in the world in order to prevent proliferation of nuclear weapons. This paper first gives an outline of the notions: 'non-proliferation', the 'front-end' of the fuel cycle, the scope of fuel baking, nuclear fuel and the 60 years of enrichment technology. Enrichment technology is highly concentrated in the nuclear weapon states and other developed countries, but this is not exclusive any more. The technology is spreading. The global demand for enrichment services - parallel to massive nuclear investments in the civil sector and the ageing of older facilities - is constantly growing. Proliferation sensitivity calls for an effective and comprehensive non-proliferation regime. The solution may be multilateralizing the nuclear fuel cycle. After a historical overview, the proposals on multilateral nuclear approaches are presented. The assessment of the proposals is complex in the dimensions of: the non-proliferation aim, the assurance of supply aspect and other variables such as legal issues and non-nuclear inducements. A general evaluation and the recommendations of the Expert Panel of the IAEA are introduced outlining a plan on a middle- and long-term basis. The conclusion of the paper stresses the importance and challenge in finding the 'new balance' between obligations and interests of the members of the glons and interests of the members of the global community stating that the answers will have a significant impact on the nuclear indus- try, world wide economics and security policy.

Appetitive Sensitization by Amphetamine does not Reduce its Ability to Produce Conditioned Taste Aversion to Saccharin  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Previous exposure to amphetamine attenuates its ability to induce conditioned taste aversion (CTA). Because amphetamine, unlike emetic agents like LiCl, possesses appetitive properties that sensitize when it is administered repeatedly, the present study assessed the contribution of sensitization to this US pre-exposure effect (US-PEE). It was found that not all sensitizing regimens of systemic amphetamine injections produce a US-PEE. In addition, previous exposure to amphetamine in the VTA, w...

Synthesis of 15N labeled glyphosate  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Amongst the actually commercialized herbicides the Glyphosate is the most used in Brazil. Its efficiency as well as the others herbicides against undesirable weeds is harmed by its final composts left at the environment. Although studies has being carried out to improve the knowledge about the herbicides behavior at the environment its complexity has led them towards innumerous to new significant research work where the use of radiolabeled composts (radiative tracers) are recommended to evaluate their bio-availability in the soil. However is the use, the manipulation and the storage of radiolabeled composts is requires an extra care under chemical safety point of view. The use of non radiolabeled composts is a world tendency especially for field researches. Under this context the presented work describes a method for the synthesis of 15N labeled glyphosate. The 15N-herbicide was undertaken by phosphometilation with the phosphit dialquil and 15N-glycine. The tests where carried out through a micro scale production plant and of equimolars amounts. At these conditions it's was possible to reach approximately a 20% of yield. At the conclusion of a best operational condition its expected to offer another important toll that shall be used in glyphosate behavior at the environment and undesirably weeds. (author)

Atividade de glutationa S-transferase na degradação do herbicida glyphosate em plantas de milho (Zea mays Glutathione S-transferase activity on the degradation of the herbicide glyphosate in maize (Zea mays plants  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A glutationa S-transferase (GST, EC 2.5.1.18 desempenha um papel importante na resposta do estresse causado por herbicidas nas plantas; é considerada uma enzima de desintoxicação, por metabolizar grande variedade de compostos xenobióticos, por meio da conjugação destes com glutationa reduzida, formando substâncias de baixa toxicidade. O milho (Zea mays foi escolhido neste trabalho por apresentar problemas de injúrias quando submetido ao controle químico de plantas daninhas, por meio do uso de herbicidas. Esta pesquisa teve como objetivo determinar as alterações na atividade desta enzima em plantas de milho submetidas ao tratamento pelo herbicida glyphosate. O delineamento experimental utilizado foi o inteiramente casualizado, em esquema fatorial 4x4, com quatro tratamentos herbicidas (glyphosate nas concentrações de 1.000, 2.500 e 5.000 ppm e as plantas-controle tratadas com água e quatro estádios de desenvolvimento (9, 16, 23 e 30 dias após a emergência, com cinco repetições. O herbicida foi aplicado na parte aérea das plântulas de milho. A parte aérea foi coletada às 24, 48 e 72 horas após a aplicação do herbicida e utilizada para a determinação da atividade da GST e do teor de lipoperóxidos. Foi verificado que os teores de lipoperóxidos não foram alterados pelo tratamento com o glyphosate, porém a atividade de GST aumentou na maioria dos tratamentos utilizados, indicando ter ação na degradação do herbicida glyphosate em plantas de milho.Glutathione S-transferase (GST, EC 2.5.1.18 plays an important role in the response to stress caused by herbicides in plants; it is considered to be a detoxifying enzyme since it metabolizes a great variety of xenobiotic compounds, by combining them with reduced glutathione, forming substances of low toxicity. Maize (Zea mays was chosen in this work for showing injury problems when submitted to weed chemical control. This research aimed to determine the alterations in the activity of this enzyme in glyphosate-treated maize plants. The experimental design was completely randomized, in a 4 x 4 factorial arrangement, with four treatments (glyphosate at concentrations of 1,000, 2,500 and 5,000 ppm and control plant treated with water and four developmental stages (9, 16, 23 and 30 days after emergence, with five replicates. The herbicide was applied on the maize plant shoots, which were collected at 24, 48 and 72 hours after herbicide application and utilized for determining the GST activity and lipoperoxide content. It was verified that glyphosate does not change the lipoperoxide content, but increases GST activity for most treatments utilized, indicating its action in the degradation of glyphosate in maize plants.

Glyphosate applications on arable fields considerably coincide with migrating amphibians.  

Science.gov (United States)

Glyphosate usage is increasing worldwide and the application schemes of this herbicide are currently changing. Amphibians migrating through arable fields may be harmed by Glyphosate applied to field crops. We investigated the population-based temporal coincidence of four amphibian species with Glyphosate from 2006 to 2008. Depending on a) age- and species-specific main migration periods, b) crop species, c) Glyphosate application mode for crops, and d) the presumed DT50 value (12 days or 47 days) of Glyphosate, we calculated up to 100% coincidence with Glyphosate. The amphibians regularly co-occur with pre-sowing/pre-emerging Glyphosate applications to maize in spring and with stubble management prior to crop sowing in late summer and autumn. Siccation treatment in summer coincides only with early pond-leaving juveniles. We suggest in-depth investigations of both acute and long-term effects of Glyphosate applications on amphibian populations not only focussed on exposure during aquatic periods but also terrestrial life stages.

Study of glyphosate transport through suspended particulate matter  

Science.gov (United States)

The results have been produced in a project aiming to improve the water quality of the Layon localy supported by stakeholders involved in the implementation of the Water Framework Directive as the SAGE-Layon Aubance. The study site is a small vineyard catchment (2.2 ha) of the Loire Valley. The slopes of the study site are between 8 and 40% resulting in strong erosive episodes during rainy event. The main objective is to understand the transfer of pesticide residues to stream. Preliminary results have shown glyphosate can be found with high concentrations during runoff. However this study was realized only in the dissolved phase. The objective is now to understand the glyphosate transport driven by SPM. The methodology developed has been (i) characterization and production of the erodible water fraction from soils aggregates; (ii) achievement of the adsorption of glyphosate on these erodible materials to compare this results with adsorption on soil sieved to 2 mm, (iii) achievement of the desorption of glyphosate on these erodible materials. Measurements have been performed on soil samples distinguishing weed or grassed soils. Soils are sieved to 2 mm or between 2 and 5 mm (to produce the erodible water fraction). Both fractions are then used to glyphosate sorption and desorption. The erodible fraction was produce with a wet sieving machine (eijkelkampt Method Kemper and Rosenau, 1986), using sieve porosity of 250 microns. The fraction obtained at 250 microns is considered to be the erodible water fraction and is used to study the adsorption and desorption of glyphosate. Kinetics has been first carried out then the isotherm to obtain the value of Kd. A ratio soil/solution of 1/5 was used. Successive desorption's method was chosen with a stirring time of 20 min, centrifugation at 6000 g and the supernatant in each desorption of 20 min is analyzed. This step is repeated 25 times. The main results of the study are: (i) adsorption of glyphosate is rapid and almost complete (95% in 2 min). (ii) Kd obtained on the erodible fraction are two times higher than on 2 mm sieved soils. (iii) Desorption showed that glyphosate is desorbed from the erodible fraction at 40% after 25 desorptions. The aim of this study was to show the potential transport of glyphosate through suspended particulate matter. The adsorption on the erodible fraction argued to a significant transport potential of glyphosate on this fraction. The desorption of glyphosate from the erodible water fraction have revealed that the adsorption of glyphosate is reversible but it is much slower. These results demonstrate that glyphosate may be stored on the erodible fraction and be transported by these fractions. Keywords: Adsorption, Desorption, Glyphosate, Suspended Solids, Erosion.

Identification of Glyphosate Resistance in Lolium rigidum Gaudin  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate resistance was found in Lolium rigidum Gaudin (Rigid ryegrass, LOLRI inSouth Africa. Suspected glyphosate-resistant L. rigidum populations were collected andgrown under greenhouse conditions. The plants were sprayed with a range of doses of glyphosate35 days after planting and shoot dry biomass was determined 17 days after herbicidetreatment. Based on the dose-response experiment conducted in the greenhouse,one population of L. rigidum suspected to be resistant to glyphosate was approximately 5.3fold more resistant than susceptible population. The other population was 2.8 fold moreresistant than susceptible population. Difference between the two suspected resistant populationswas 1.9 fold. All plants were treated with glyphosate (1000 g a.i. ha-1 and shikimicacid was extracted 2, 4 and 6 days after treatment. The plants of susceptible populationsaccumulated more shikimic acid than other two populations.

Effect of different doses of glyphosate in soybean  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract: Brazil ranks second in production of conventional soybeans and third in production of transgenic soybeans. The main advantage of transgenic soybean is resistant to the herbicide glyphosate, but the continued use of exaggeration and even of the same herbicide on soybean can significantly decrease acquired resistance. This work aimed to evaluate the effects of different doses of glyphosate can result in soybean. The experiment was conducted in a greenhouse on the Campus of UFMT in Sinop-MT, and evaluated five doses of glyphosate in transgenic soybeans intercropped with two conventional soybeans. The characters were evaluated for phytotoxicity scores and length of the root system. It was found that, regardless of the amount of glyphosate applied occur symptoms of phytotoxicity in conventional and transgenic soybean. Whereas the most damage will be in conventional soybean, and transgenic soybean little affected by the action of the herbicide.Key words: Glycine max, glyphosate, phytotoxicity

Glyphosate tolerance of soybean mutant gained after boarding on satellite  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Glyphosate-tolerant germplasm and genetic variation characteristics of SP2 and SP3 soybean varieties boarded on Shijian No.8 satellite were analyzed after treated by herbicide glyphosate in the field. Abundant variations of traits were produced, and the resistance within and among cultivars were different in their offspring of space mutagenesis. Plant height and maturity were used as index to screen glyphosate tolerant materials. Space mutation increased of soybean 661 SP3 of Zhongpin, and one glyphosate-resistance variant was screened from Zhongpin 661 SP3. It showed that glyphosate tolerance was different among offspring of different space mutagenesis soybean materials. It is feasible to systemically screen elite traits soybean by applying space mutation breeding. (authors)

Bioassay for detection of transgenic soybean seeds tolerant to glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Glyphosate is a systemic, nonselective, postemergence herbicide that inhibits growth of both weeds and crop plants. Once inside the plant, glyphosate interferes with biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan, by inhibiting the activity of 5enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS, a key enzyme of the shikimate pathway. The objective of this work was to develop a simple, effective and inexpensible method for identification of transgenic soybean tolerant to glyphosate. This technique consisted in germinating soybean seeds in filter paper moistened with 100 to 200 muM of glyphosate. Transgenic soybean seeds tolerant to glyphosate germinated normally in this solution and, between 7 and 10 days, started to develop a primary root system. However non-transgenic seeds stopped primary root growth and emission of secondary roots.

Refractory cardiopulmonary failure after glyphosate surfactant intoxication: a case report  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Glyphosate is an herbicide considered to be of low toxicity to humans because its effects are specific to plants. However, fatal reactions to glyphosate have been reported after the ingestion of large amounts. Pulmonary edema, shock, and arrhythmia were the reported causes of mortality. Case presentation We present the case of a 57-year-old woman who was admitted to the emergency department unconsciousness after ingestion of glyphosate surfactant in a suicide attempt. Metabolic acidosis, refractory respiratory failure, and shock developed during hospitalization. Despite aggressive supportive care, the patient died in the hospital. Conclusion The toxicokinetics of glyphosate surfactant is complicated. Respiratory failure, metabolic acidosis, tachycardia, elevated creatinine, and hyperkalemia are poor prognostic factors if presented. Physicians should consider using hemodialysis early to improve the outcome of patients with glyphosate surfactant intoxication.

The influence of salts in carrier water and adjuvants on glyphosate activity  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Glyphosate, a non-selective herbicide, is antagonized by salts in the spray carrier and responds to surfactant type and concentration. Glyphosate antagonism by dissolved salts such as calcium and magnesium was verified with natural water carriers and with carriers to which salts were added. Salt antagonism of glyphosate occurred from the formation of complexes that were less absorptive than the formulated isopropylamine glyphosate. Absorption of various salts of glyphosate varied as follows: ...

Developmental exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls reduces amphetamine behavioral sensitization in Long-Evans rats.  

Science.gov (United States)

PCBs have long been known to affect dopamine (DA) function in the brain. The current study used an amphetamine behavioral sensitization paradigm in rats developmentally exposed to PCBs. Long-Evans rats were given perinatal exposure to 0, 3, or 6mg/kg/day PCBs and behavioral sensitization to d-amphetamine (AMPH) was assessed in one adult male and female/litter. Non-exposed (control) males showed increasing locomotor activity to repeated injections of 0.5mg/kg AMPH, typical of behavioral sensitization. PCB-exposed males showed greater activation to the initial acute AMPH injection, but sensitization occurred later and was blunted relative to controls. Sensitization in control females took longer to develop than in the males, but no exposure-related differences were observed. Analysis of whole brain and serum AMPH content following a final IP injection of 0.5mg/kg revealed no differences among the exposure groups. Overall, these results indicated developmental PCB exposure can alter the motor-stimulating effects of repeated AMPH injections. Males developmentally exposed to PCBs appeared to be pre-sensitized to AMPH, but quickly showed behavioral tolerance to the same drug dose. Results also revealed the behavioral effect was not due to exposure-induced alterations in AMPH metabolism following PCB exposure. PMID:23623962

A quantidade de glyphosate absorvido, translocado e exsudado foi avaliada 64 horas após aplicação, por meio da medição da radiação emitida pelo 14C-glyphosate, em espectrômetro de cintilação líquida. O glyphosate foi quantificado em folha de aplicação, perfilhos, raízes e na solução nutritiva onde foram cultivados os biótipos de azevém. No segundo experimento, aplicou-se o glyphosate (480 g ha-1 tanto no biótipo sensível quanto no resistente. Após dez dias da aplicação, a parte área e as raízes das plantas foram coletadas e secas em estufa, sendo determinados os teores de macronutrientes. No primeiro ensaio, verificou-se exsudação radicular em ambos os biótipos, nos quais a quantidade de glyphosate exsudada foi semelhante, não ultrapassando 5% do total que penetrou na planta. No perfilho principal do biótipo sensível, comparado ao resistente, foi observada maior concentração do produto marcado. O biótipo resistente apresentou maior acúmulo de produto marcado na folha de aplicação; no sensível, a maior parte do glyphosate foi encontrada nas raízes. Com relação ao segundo ensaio, na presença de herbicida o biótipo sensível apresentou menor teor de fósforo tanto na parte aérea quanto na planta. Os biótipos resistente e sensível, sem aplicação de herbicida, tenderam a apresentar maiores teores de N total e N inorgânico na parte aérea e na planta como um todo, quando comparados aos tratamentos em que foi realizada a aplicação do produto. Ambos os biótipos mostraram a mesma capacidade de absorção e acúmulo de macronutrientes na ausência do produto.This work aimed to evaluate nutrient accumulation and glyphosate translocation in ryegrass biotypes. Two trials were conducted: in the first, 10 uL of 14C-glyphosate ware applied on the upper side of the first leaf showing completely visible ligule, with ryegrass plants at the three-tiller stage. The amount of glyphosate absorbed, translocated and exudated was evaluated 64 hours after application, by using a liquid scintillation spectrometer. Glyphosate was quantified in the leaf it had been applied, in the tillers, roots and in the nutritive solution the plants were grown. In the second trial, glyphosate was applied on the resistant and the susceptible biotypes at the rate of 480 g L-1. Ten days after application, the shoot and roots were collected and oven-dried and the levels of macronutrients were determined. In the first trial, root exudation was observed in both biotypes, in which the amount of exudated glyphosate was similar and not greater than 5% of the absorbed glyphosate. In the main tiller of the susceptible biotype, a higher concentration of 14C-glyphosate was observed, compared to the resistant one. The resistant biotype showed more glyphosate accumulation in the leaf it had been applied and in the susceptible biotype; most 14-C glyphosate was found in the root system. In the second trial, the susceptible biotype showed less P accumulation than the resistant one. Both the resistant and susceptible biotypes tended to accumulate more total N and inorganic N in the shoot and in the whole plant in the absence of glyphosate, compared to the applied treatments. Both biotypes presented the same absorption capacity and macronutrients accumulation in the absence of the glyphosate.

A new image similarity measure with reduced sensitivity to interpolation and generalizability to multispectral image registration.  

Science.gov (United States)

Mutual information (MI) has proven to be a useful similarity measure for spatial registration between related pairs of images in various medical imaging applications. Image registration algorithms that utilize the MI assume that the best alignment between a pair of images is reached when their MI is at its maximum. However, this assumption is not always valid because the MI is not only sensitive to dissimilarity between images, but also to the image interpolation operations performed during the optimization process in image registration algorithms. When the images that are being registered are close to their optimum spatial alignment, MI's sensitivity to interpolation may become dominant over its sensitivity to image misalignment, hence limiting the accuracy of the image registration method. In this paper, we present an entropy-based cost function, closely related to MI, that can be made relatively insensitive to interpolation effects, and can be generalized to registration of multispectral images.

Numerical study of the sensitivity of mangroves in reducing storm surge and flooding to hurricane characteristics in southern Florida  

Science.gov (United States)

The sensitivity of the mangrove effect on reducing storm surge flooding to hurricane characteristics is investigated by using the numerical model Coastal and Estuarine Storm Tide (CEST). First, the attenuation of storm surge by mangroves is incorporated into the model by updating Manning's coefficient based on the National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) 2001. Then CEST is verified by comparing the model results with field observations in South Florida for Hurricane Wilma. Secondly, a set of numerical experiments using synthetic hurricanes with different intensity, forward speed, radius of maximum wind speed and travel direction are conducted for the sensitivity study. Results indicate that storm surge magnitudes and flooding areas are reduced by the mangrove zone more for fast moving hurricanes than slow moving hurricanes in the west coast of South Florida. In addition, increasing hurricane intensity and hurricane size lower the effect of mangroves on attenuating storm surge and reducing the flooding area. The mangrove zone plays a more effective role in reducing flooding areas from hurricanes that travel from east to west than from hurricanes that travel from west to east. The mangrove reduction effect is most sensitive to changes in hurricane forward speed. A 6.7 m/s to 2.2 m/s decrease in forward speed can result in a decrease in flood area reduction by mangroves that is equivalent to the decrease in flood area reduction by mangroves from Category 3 to 5 hurricanes.

Response of Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus urograndis Plants at Different Doses of Glyphosate  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The aim of this study was to evaluate the response of eucalyptus plants submitted to the application of glyphosate increasing rates. The doses 0.0, 3.6, 7.2, 18, 36, 72 and 180 g ha-1 of acid equivalent (ae of glyphosate were applied on plants. At 7, 15, 22, 29, 36 and 42 days after application (DAA was determined leaves relative chlorophyll content and quantum efficiency of photosystem II. At 22 and 42 DAA plant height and stem diameter were measured. At 42 DAA were determined the leaves dry mass, stem dry mass and foliar area. The height, diameter, leaves and stem dry masses and foliar area were converted to percentages, whereas the controls as 100%. These variables were fitted to the model described by Gauss equation. The data chlorophyll content and quantum efficiency of photosystem II were submitted to mean comparison, and when they differed, we performed the Tukey test at 5% probability. All the features presented here showed some hormetic effect promoted by reduced rates of glyphosate and the increments observed in these characteristics (when compared to control ranged between 5.92 and 33.18% at 42 DAA. From average curve with height, diameter, leaves dry mass, stem dry mass and foliar area can be concluded that the increase averaged 12% on application of 16 g a.e. of glyphosate ha-1. For leaves chlorophyll content significant differences were observed only at 29 DAA, while for quantum efficiency of photosystem II significant differences were found only at 7 DAA.

Utilização de glifosato para o controle de ferrugem da soja / Glyphosate application on soybean rust control  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o efeito de glifosato sobre a germinação de esporos de Phakopsora pachyrhizi e no controle da ferrugem da soja, aplicado preventiva e erradicativamente, em condições controladas. A germinação de esporos foi avaliada tendo-se vertido, em meio de cultura, soluções [...] de esporos com diferentes concentrações do glifosato (0, 100, 1.000, 10.000 e 20.000 ppm) e fungicidas. Para avaliar o controle da ferrugem, plantas foram pulverizadas com glifosato, com variação da dose e do momento, tendo-se medido a severidade da doença. Houve efeito do produto sobre os esporos do fungo, o que reduziu sua germinação. As pulverizações em plantas, em casa de vegetação, mostraram um efeito do produto sobre a ferrugem, quando aplicado preventivamente, porém com período de proteção curto e fungitoxicidade inferior à do fungicida tebuconazole. O uso do glifosato, avaliado nesse ensaio, não deve ser visto como medida de manejo de ferrugem, e não interfere nas práticas habituais de controle da ferrugem da soja. Abstract in english The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of glyphosate on the germination of Phakopsora pachyrhizi spores, and on soybean rust control; applications were either preventive or eradicative under controlled conditions. The germination of spores was evaluated by pouring spores solutions on [...] culture medium, with different concentrations of glyphosate (0, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 20,000 ppm) and fungicides. For the rust control evaluation, plants were sprayed with glyphosate, varying doses and moments, and estimating the disease severity. The product reduced spores germination. Plants sprayed in greenhouse conditions, showed effect of the product on rust, when applied preventively, but with short protection period and lower fungus toxicity than tebuconazole fungicide. The use of glyphosate, evaluated in this trial, must not be taken as a rust management measure, and should not interfere in usual practices for soybean rust control.
