Do GMOs contribute to super weeds?
The problem of weed resistance is not limited to GM crops. Weeds are one of the most significant problems for farmers, second only to soil erosion. Controlling weeds can be done by using clean equipment and seeds, rotating crops, applying herbicides, mulching, mowing, tilling, and cultivating. If a farmer repetitively uses the same crop protection product to control weeds, weeds may develop resistance. Crop rotation and employing a variety of weed control options is the best defense against resistance.
