Weed Resistance to Herbicides: Assessing and Finding Solutions for a Complex Problem
Weed resistance to herbicides is one of the most critical threats to sustainable global food production. The speed of their evolution and spread of resistant weeds is overcoming the industry's capacity to provide new herbicides for effective weed control. To cope with this threat, it is vital to assess and bring new solutions to this complex problem. We are pleased to announce this special Topic on “Weed Resistance to Herbicides” at MDPI. This Topic will span across five journals: Agriculture, Agronomy, Crops, Genes, and Plants. The authors can choose in which journal to publish, and all the manuscripts will be assembled under a unique Topic. Please check on the journal webpage the instructions for authors to find details on what is expected of a manuscript.
In this Topic, we will accept manuscripts dealing with the aspects related to weed resistance below:
- Weed resistance detection;
- Ecology and biology of resistant weeds;
- Weed resistance mechanisms;
- Weed resistance management;
- Weed resistance and environmental aspects;
- Agronomic and sociological impact of weed resistance.
