This article presents an interview with Stephen Powles, director of the Western Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative, on the issue of herbiside resistance. A cropping system that is a Roundup Ready crop followed by another followed by another and on and on isn't sufficiently diverse. According to Powles, if farmers strike on a good herbicide, don't stick to it. If farmers are getting fantastic weed control with glyphosate, change it anyway. Same is true for paraquat. Rotate the herbicides and use any non-herbicide tools that make economic sense.
