What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The book provides a very useful review for researchers into GR crops and weeds, as well as to those involved in education and extension, and decision-making in the approval of GM crops. It exemplifies the complexities and consequences of resistance development in general." (The Journal of Experimental Agriculture, 1 October 2011)

"Features contributions from leading experts in the many disciplines needed to fully understand glyphosphate-resistant crops and weeds. The authors have reviewed and analyzed all the latest research findings as well as the latest technologies developed to manage GR crops and weeds." (Chemical & Engineering News, December 2010)

"This book provides such an essential, up-to-date source of information on glyphosate resistance for researchers, extension workers, land managers, government personnel, and other decision makers and provides comprehensive coverage of the intensely studied topic of glyphosate resistant (GR) in crops". (, 23 November 2010)
