Guayule: A Rubber-Producing Shrub for Arid and Semiarid Regions By William G. McGinnies and Edward F. Haase Topics: Guayule, Guayule -- BibliographyAuthor: William G. McGinnies and Edward F. Haase. Guayule is a shrub native to Mexico growing in semiarid lands, that may be incorporated into the semiarid region production system as a complement for annual crops. The possibility to develop this natural resource as a sustainable industrial source of natural rubber, may improve the socio-economical level of people living at the guayule region and favor the agricultural development near the US Cited by: 4. Guayule (Parthenium argentatum A. Gray), originates from the Southern Texas and Northern Mexico deserts, and is receiving wide attention as a natural rubber crop that could successfully grow in arid and semiarid regions. Continued improvement of guayule for higher biomass, rubber production and resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, as well as maximizing agronomic practices are necessary to meet the increasing demand of the guayule rubber Author: Hussein Abdel-Haleem, Zinan Luo, Dennis Ray.

Guayule (Parthenium argentatum Gray) is a rubber-producing plant native to the semi-arid region of north central Mexico and southwestern Texas. As a member of the family Asteraceae, the seed dispersal unit in guayule is comprised of an achene enclosed by two staminate florets and a bract.

BACKGROUND: Guayule (Parthenium argentatum A. Gray), a plant native to semi-arid regions of northern Mexico and southern Texas in the United States, is an alternative source for natural rubber (NR). Rapid screening tools are needed to replace the current labor-intensive and cost-inefficient method for quantifying rubber and resin contents.

Chrysothamnus, a multi-use desert shrub which can grown in a wide range of environmental conditions, has potential uses for revegetation (Sankhla et al. ), as a forage for wildlife and livestock (Bhat et al. ), for production of natural rubber (Hall and Goodspeed ), for production of hydrocarbons from its biomass (Buchannon et al. ), for resin for polymer plastics (Thames Guayule Probably the second xerophytic plant to become a com-mercial reality will be Guayule (Parthenium argentatum, Fig. 1), a rubber-producing shrub that is native to the Chi-huahuan Desert in southwestern Texas and northern Mex-ico. Though Guayule is a member of the Compositae (daisy family), its rubber is essentially identical with that pro-.
