Inheritance of herbicide resistance in black-grass (Alopecurus myosuroides) and responses of the weed to a range of herbicides
Aims and objectives
The combined objectives of the project were:
a) To study cross-reliance patterns and inheritance of herbicide resistance in black-grass in order to determine the risk of increase of resistance in the United Kingdom.
b) To determine the respsonse of several populations of resistant black-grass to a range of herbicides applied under stimulated field conditions, in order to confirm the relevance of resistance ratings derived from glasshouse tests to field conditions.
