Description

General description

Glufosinate Ammonium 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. The application of glufosinate ammonium leads to reduced glutamine and increased ammonia levels in the plant tissues. This causes photosynthesis to stop and the plant dies within a few days.

Glufosinate Ammonium inhibits the activity of glutamine synthetase, an enzyme necessary for photosynthesis.
