Project Title: Managing Herbicide Resistance

This project will endeavor to improve weed control and vegetation management within New Zealand to minimize future herbicide resistance. As part of a larger national programme, funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and managed by AgResearch, our role will be to design identification tools to quickly identify plants that have developed resistance to herbicides. Some of these tools will involve seed-based assays but most will make use of gene-based methods. The genes responsible for resistance will be identified using a range of different methods, then resistance markers will be used to develop rapid identification tests.
