Target-Site vs. Non-Target-Site Resistance: What’s the Difference?

This article was originally posted on Take Action. Weed scientist identifies two types of herbicide resistance farmers should watch for. Herbicide resistance is an evolutionary process – one that began decades ago and grows each season. With new discoveries in herbicide resistance becoming more complex, the weed-control battle proves to be a never-ending uphill climb for U.S. soybean farmers. But as resistant weeds continue to evolve, ongoing research provides a better understanding of the challenges presented in the types of herbicide resistance we face—target-site resistance and non-target-site resistance—and which control mechanisms will work for each moving forward. Target-Site Resistance [...]
