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:

  • Developmental processes of first and subsequent generationsof glyphosate-resistant crops
  • A separate chapter on the economic impact of glyphosate-resistant weeds
  • Strategies for effectively managing glyphosate resistance
  • Regional management issues surrounding glyphosate-resistant weeds around the world
  • Genetics and genomics of glyphosate resistance
  • Methods of testing for glyphosate resistance

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.
