Roberto conducts research on the evolutionary dynamics of herbicide resistance – to discover and understand why and how weeds can evolve resistance so fast. Over the past six years, his research has focused on the impact of using low herbicide rates and, in a world first, established that persistent use of the pre-emergent herbicide Sakura (pyroxasulfone) at low rates can lead to rapid resistance evolution in Lolium rigidum.
