Resisting Resistance: NY Times Article

A New York Times article from Sunday, May 16, 2010, describes the herbicide resistance scenario I discussed in last Friday’s blog and discusses how herbicide overuse has contributed to glyphosate-resistant weeds. As he states in his conclusion, the desirable solution to the problem is the incorporation of new seeds, including unmodified seed, and the addition of cultivation practices.

Also, read today’s editorial in the Fayetteville Observer (North Carolina) about the evolution of Roundup resistant weeds in southeastern North Carolina.
