Early glyphosate-resistance detection soon?

A new kit will help growers determine whether weeds in their fields are glyphosate resistant.

A USDA Agricultural Research Service scientist is working with Monsanto to develop a kit that growers could use to determine whether weeds in their fields are glyphosate resistant. One key to addressing the threat posed by glyphosate resistance is early detection. If a resistant weed is detected early, alternative control methods can be employed to prevent resistance spread.

Scientists can determine whether a weed will resist glyphosate by measuring the amount of a compound, shi
