Cross-resistance to bispyribac-sodium and Bensulfuron-methyl in Echinochloa phyllopogon and Cyperus difformis
Abstract Water-seeded and continuously flooded rice in California is mostly grown as a continuous crop and weeds are the most serious rice production problem. Echinochloa phyllopogon (Stapf) Koss andExpand
