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.
Drs. Leslie and Summerell organize an annual Fusarium Laboratory Workshop in which participants receive hands-on instruction in the implementation of and the interpretation of results from the techniques described in this manual.
