Partnering in Weed Management Research
Bayer’s Weed Resistance Competence Center cooperates globally with leading institutes and universities on numerous projects to expand the WRCC’s capabilities to investigate many different issues.
Herbicide Innovation Partnership
|Partner:||Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), Australia|
|Focus of research:||New herbicide modes of action|
|Weeds:||Ryegrass, wild radish, feathertop rhodes grass, fleabane, etc.|
|Aim:||Develop herbicides with new modes of action for growers around the world, and expand scientific know-how among Australian researchers via a post-doc program.
ARC Linkage Grant
|Partner:||Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) based at University of Western Australia UWA with support from GRDC and funding from Australian Research Council (ARC)|
|Focus of research:||Metabolic resistance|
|Aim:||Identification and functional characterization of genes for metabolism-based herbicide resistance in Lolium rigidum.|
Case study Germany
|Partner:||University of Braunschweig|
|Focus of research:||ALS and ACCase resistance development|
|Aim:||Follow the evolution of ALS and ACCase resistance development in blackgrass field populations and identify the most important agronomic factors contributing to resistance.
