Summary

Written by experts from across the globe, Herbicide Resistance and World Grains evaluates the weed and herbicide management systems in major world grain crops such as soybean, maize, rice, and canola. The book examines the impact of transgenic crops and new technology on resistance management. It provides background information and offers practical guidelines for the management of herbicide resistant weeds with an emphasis on a systems approach.

This book provides the how-tos of managing herbicide resistant weed populations in the major grain crops. The authors also explore the sociological and agronomic factors affecting farmers' adaptation of herbicide resistance management systems. With this in mind, they suggest that the recommended guidelines be global in scope but also applicable at local levels.

Containing the most up-to-date information on the genetics and mechanisms of resistance, the book also includes models that can be used to make informed decisions on management alternatives and financial analysis of the cost and an update of the regulatory aspects of resistance management. Other books on this subject merely document the extent and spread of resistance but provide little information on what to do about it. Herbicide Resistance and World Grains contains practical solutions that can be used by researchers and practitioners alike.
