The evolution of weed and insect resistance to traditional controls has brought about the need for new approaches in crop protection. Today’s guest is Dr. Doug Sammons (@wiltedweeds) is a biochemist from the Monsanto Company. He has spent a career in understanding mechanisms of herbicide action and resistance, and now discusses new approaches using RNAi to enhance weed sensitivity to herbicide treatment. The result is better weed control and decreased need for herbicide treatments.
