The article focuses on weed scientists who have developed a plan to combat glyphosate resistance. According to the weed scientists, herbicides do not cause resistance. Rather, herbicides select for resistance already present in the population. A biotype is a subgroup within a species that possesses certain traits or characteristics not common to the entire population. A biotype, for example, may be resistant to a particular herbicide that kills most individuals within that species. Growers need to stop and think just how much they depend upon glyphosate.

There also...
