Researchers said this reduces the chance of a size-dependent fitness advantage for horseweed biotypes that develop herbicide resistance.
In irrigated rice cultivation, the intensive use of herbicides inhibiting the enzyme acetolactate synthase (ALS) has favored the selection of biotypes of resistant weeds worldwide; among them, those of barnyard grass (Echinochloa crusgalli) (Heap, 2017).

The combination of the test results generate four host-specific biotypes (ecovars), namely, human, poultry, bovine, and ovine and five nonhost-specific biotypes (NHS biotypes) individually named after the test results: K - [beta] + CV: C (biotype A), K - [beta] + CV: A (biotype B), K + [beta] - CV: A (biotype C), K + [beta] + CV: A (biotype D), and K - [beta] - CV: C (biotype E).
However, all strains of Y Enterocolitica are not pathogenic to humans but some strains such as biotypes 1B/O:8, 2/O:5,27, 2/O:9, 3/O:3, and 4/O:3 are human pathogens [13].
enterocolitica biotype IA (1 of the 6 biotypes) lack the pYV plasmid and the major chromosomal determinants of virulence and, thus, have been regarded as avirulent (2).
Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial resistance of Y.enterocolitica of biotypes 1A, 2 and 4 isolated from clinical and non-clinical sources between 1979 and 2012, in Brazil.
