Fighting Global Herbicide Resistance Safety

Professor Stephen Powles, Director of the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI), discussed global weed resistance with Liam Condon, Member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and President of the Crop Science Division, at the Weed Resistance Global Symposium in Paris. Bayer and the AHRI have been collaborating in research on the mechanisms of resistance and continue to exchange experiences in order to develop better solutions that are needed to ensure that weeds do not threaten food production. A diversified approach to weed resistance is needed as herbicides alone as weed control tool are not sustainable. For this purpose, Bayer invests annually more than one billion euros in crop science research and development, combining chemical and biological crop protection products with modern breeding technologies and trait research.
