ABSTRACT
An interview with plant biology professor Stephen Powles of Australia is presented. When asked about the agricultural situation in Australia, he states that it is not that great, but pretty decent especially in 2009. He notes the need for farmers to be creative and diverse on crop weed management as not all of them can maintain conservation tillage. He indicates that glyphosate resistance will be big time in the U.S., Argentina, and Brazil due to their adoption of the Roundup Ready crops.
