Imazapyr is an insoluble herbicide which belongs to the imidazolinone family.
|Mechanism of Action||Imazapyr inhibits acetolactate synthase (ALS) which plays an essential role in the biosynthesis of branched chain amino acids.|
|Plant Biology Applications||Imazapyr is most effective post-emergence to kill broadleaf weeds and grasses less than 10 cm in height (Armel, 2003). ALS inhibiting herbicides account for approximately 17.5% of the global herbicide usage in corn and other agricultural goods (Green, 2008).|
