Weeds are the main cost factor for pineapple production as at least a half of production costs are related to weed control. All current commercial pineapple cultivars are sensitive or susceptible to biodegradable herbicides. This research project aimed to establish an F 1 hybrid pineapple cultivar resistant to herbicide by conventional breeding. Direct and reciprocal crosses between genetically modified 'Phuket' pineapple (TP) carrying the bialaphos-resistant (bar) gene and the commercial… CONTINUE READING
