Herbicide Resistance Testing

Since the 1rst herbicide-resistant weed reported in 2001 many weed species has acquired a resistance to an herbicide: this is a threat to the sustainability of cropping systems world-wide !

The Issue

Weed resistance normally occurs from repeated use of the same herbicide(s) and mode of application :

1 Mutation (blue) occurs naturally and confers weeds a resistance to an Herbicide

2 Application of the herbicide  erase only non-resistant weed

3 Resistance mutation to the herbicide is transmitted to the weed descendant

4 Herbicide application is not efficient anymore

" Testing for herbicide resistance will allow you to adapt on quickly evolving weeds "​

The Solution

We target site mutation in known genes that play important role in herbicide resistance
