Atrazine tolerance in South African maize cultivars (Zea mays L.)



Atrazine tolerance in South African maize cultivars (Zea mays L.)



Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 47(7): 2706B



In trials with different genotypes, atrazine and cyanazine toxicity were associated with increased leaf diffusive resistance (LDR). Inbreds with different degrees of tolerance to cyanazine could be identified within 4 days of herbicide application using the LDR technique. Experiments with isolated epidermises showed that cyanazine had no direct effect on stomatal movement but inhibited photosynthesis in leaf tissue and hence indirectly influenced stomatal aperture and LDR.
