Concurrent evolution of seed dormancy and herbicide resistance in field populations of dominant weed species in Western Australian cropping systems

Roberto Lujan Rocha

This study evaluates the interaction among developing herbicide resistance, seed size and seed dormancy of ripgut brome, wild oat and hare barley collected from within intensively-managed fields (in-crop) in comparison with populations in surrounding ruderal (non-crop disturbed) areas with no history of exposure to herbicides within the Western Australian grainbelt.
