Last changed: 25 October 2023

The aim of the project is to provide improved opportunities and more reliable basis for developing strategies against herbicide resistance in systems with integrated weed control. Parts: 1) investigate if resistance situations; weed species (biotypes), active ingredient, resistance mechanisms and distribution, 2) establish relevant test methods, 3) providing testing opportunities for our farmers and 4) develop a strategy for monitoring herbicide resistance in Sweden
