Elmore and Bayer (1992) described the mitotic and structural effects of the dinitroaniline herbicides, nitralin (4-methylsulphonyl-2,6-dinitro-N,N-dipropy-laniline) and butralin [4-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-N-(1-methylpropyl)-2,6-dinitrobenzenamine], on perennial ryegrass root meristems.
1991), and nitralin and butralin (Elmore and Bayer, 1992).
The absence of amyloplasts was similar to what was observed by Elmore and Bayer (1992) for perennial ryegrass seedlings treated with nitralin (4-methylsulphonyl-2,6dinitro-N, N-dipropy-laniline) and butralin [4-(1,1dimethylethyl)-N-(1-methylpropyl) -2,6-dinitrobenzenaminel.
0-mg Ala-Ala treatment produced effects similar to those of nitralin and butralin in that the developmental stages; specifically, xylem development, appeared closer to the apex (Elmore and Bayer, 1992).
