The photosystem (PS) I diverter herbicides include several of the oldest in the herbicide arsenal, introduced in the mid-late 1950s by ICI (now Syngenta) and still commercially available. Because of this long-term use, a sizeable literature exists on their use as herbicides, their biochemical effects on mammals and plants, and the development of herbicide-resistant weed biotypes. Because of this voluminous literature, this review will cite mainly recent references, referring the reader to previous reviews for further details of the earlier literature.
