Herbicide Resistance : Definition and Management Strategies

  title={Herbicide Resistance : Definition and Management Strategies},
  author={Timothy S. Prather and Joseph M Ditomaso and Jodie S. Holt},
H erbicide resistance is the inherited ability of a plant to survive and reproduce following exposure to a dose of herbicide that would normally be lethal to the wild type. In a plant, resistance may occur naturally due to selection or it may be induced through such techniques as genetic engineering. Resistance may occur in plants as the result of random and infrequent mutations; there has been no evidence to date that demonstrates herbicide-induced mutation. Through selection, where the… CONTINUE READING
