Overview

Herbicides and their Mechanisms of Action highlights issues in herbicide selectivity. Developed with the input of authors from both academia and industry, this volume delivers a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of the operation of the selectivity mechanisms of herbicides. Even more, the book discusses real-world effects of herbicides, and the results herbicides bring to bear on the environment. The authors emphasize applied aspects of the subject and concentrate on the developments of the last decade, making the book both practical and timely.
With the wide variety of herbicides now available for the selective control of weed growth, it is imperative that scientists acquire a detailed understanding of the scientific bases of these herbicides. Indeed, the most recently developed herbicides work by inhibiting the enzyme systems of specific herbs, thereby retarding the growth of those herbs. For maximum effectiveness it becomes crucial that the active ingredients of these herbicides be efficiently delivered on the desired targets. Providing a state-of-the-art appraisal of this important subject, Herbicides and their Mechanisms of Action is the ideal resource for virtually all researchers and professionals involved in the development, administration, and regulation of herbicides.
