Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Glufosinate is a short name for the ammonium salt, glufosinate-ammonium.
  • Glufosinate-ammonium is a broad-spectrum  herbicide, in use in relatively small quantities since the 1980s.
  • Glufosinate ammonium is the active ingredient in a new non-selective herbicide.
  • Glufosinate residues are readily miscible in water  and will not volatilize significantly due to a low vapor pressure
  • It is used to control a wide range of weeds after the crop emerges or for total vegetation control on land not used for cultivation.
  • Glufosinate is a natural compound isolated from two species of Streptomyces fungi. It inhibits the activity of an enzyme, glutamine synthetase, which is necessary for the production of glutamine and for ammonia detoxification.
  • Glufosinate ammonium was obtained from Riedel-de Haen.
  • Glufosinate-ammonium is a phosphoruscontaining amino acid derived from a natural toxin isolated from two species of Streptomyces fungi.
  • Glufosinate-ammonium is a non-selective contact herbicide with systemic action.
  • Glufosinate or its ammonium salt DL-phosphinothricin is an active ingredient in several nonselective systemic herbicides - Basta, Rely, Finale, Ignite, Challenge and Liberty.
  • It is used on a wide range of annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds and grasses in orchards, vineyards, rubber and oil palm plantations, cotton,
    soy, ornamental trees, non-crop land, home gardens, greenhouses, nurseries, and pre-emergence in vegetables.
  • Glufosinate - ammonium is a non-selective contact herbicide with limited systemic activity in the aerial parts of treated plants.
  • Glufosinate inhibits the glutamate synthetase enzyme needed for the ammonification of glutamate to glutamine. This disruption in the production of key amino acids leads to disruption of the cell membrane, excess ammonium and death of the cell.
  • In Malaysia, glufosinate ammonium (GLUF) is a commonly used herbicide in oil palm plantations to control broad-leaved weeds and grasses.
  • Glufosinate ammonium treatment reduced the number and size of lesions in transgenic rice plants.
  • Bayer CropScience is the major producer of glufosinate-ammonium.
  • In China, Zhejiang Yongnong Chem. Ind. Co., LTD is also producing the herbicide.
  • Glufosinate-ammonium is an active ingredient in several formulated products registered
    for preplant and postemergent control of broadleaf weeds in a variety of crops and non-crop areas.
