Application Notes
Glyphosate is a potent plant growth regulator; however, it is also a potent growth regulator for bacteria and algae.2 Its mode of action is to interfere with the shikimate pathway by inhibiting the 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate (EPSP) synthase, which is responsible for the biosynthesis of the aromatic compounds (e.g. tryptophan, phenylalanine, tyrosine) and the 3-deoxy-d-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate (DAHP) synthase isozyme. 3, 4, 5
It has been reported that single bud explants of low bush blueberry produced more shoots than usual in vitro when the mother plant were sprayed with 250 or 500 mg/L of glyphosate solution. Similar result has been reported with stem explants of cranberry when dipped in glyphosate solution of 102.5 mg/L for 30 seconds or 321.2 mg/L for 5 seconds. 6
