Impacts of Crop Genetics: Weed Evolution
Have you ever wondered how plant scientists help farmers maintain the delicate balance between maximizing crop yield while keeping weeds in check? As farmers contend with more herbicide-resistant weeds, plant breeders must worry about developing additional herbicide-resistance traits in crops if weeds will quickly become resistant, too. Breeding herbicide-resistant crops is especially challenging when weed relatives can become resistant through gene flow.
A new spring 2017 course taught by Dr. Melinda Yerka at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) will cover this subject between Jan. 9-Feb. 17. “Environmental Impacts of Crop Genetics: Weed Evolution” will examine how selective pressures are applied to plant populations both in breeding programs and to weed populations growing in fields, to understand outcomes in plant response and competitive ability.
