"The book provides a very useful review for researchers into GR crops and weeds, as well as to those involved in education and extension, and decision-making in the approval of GM crops. It exemplifies the complexities and consequences of resistance development in general."-- The Journal of Experimental Agriculture
Glyphosate-resistant crop technology has revolutionized crop production in many parts of the world, offering such benefits as reduced fuel costs and improved soil conservation; however, glyphosate-resistant weeds are becoming one of the most pressing problems in crop protection, threatening the sustainability of glyphosate and glyphosate-resistant crop technology. This book details the development of glyphosate resistance, offering interdisciplinary approaches for managing glyphosate-resistant weeds and reducing their spread.
Glyphosate Resistance in Crops and Weeds features contributions from leading experts in the many disciplines needed to fully understand glyphosate-resistant crops and weeds. The authors have reviewed and analyzed all the latest research findings as well as the latest technologies developed to manage glyphosate-resistant crops and weeds. Coverage includes:
References guide readers to the primary literature for further investigation of individual topics. A compilation of commonly used terms in herbicide resistance and their definitions is also provided.
With the productivity and health of croplands threatened around the world by glyphosate-resistant weeds, this review of glyphosate resistance is essential for land managers, weed scientists, plant biologists, crop consultants, and agronomists.
