Enhanced herbicide potency for greatly reduced glyphosate application rates

Steve Chivasa and Fidel Gonzalez-Torralva at Durham University have demonstrated that the addition of metabolites either feeding into or part of the shikimate pathway upstream of the EPSPS reaction, dramatically increases the effectiveness of glyphosate, and thereby making the herbicide so potent that it is possible to overcome glyphosate resistance developed in super weeds, and/or lower the required levels of glyphosate to control weeds.
