Pesticide-resistant weeds continue to be a threat to agricultural production in the US and globally. Dr. Parsa Tehranchian, SynTech Global leader for Screening and Weed Resistant Testing was invited as a key speaker at this year’s California Weed Science Society (CWSS) Meeting in Sacramento, CA.
In the session on Weed Management and Genetics, Dr. Tehranchian explained the molecular and physiological resistance mechanisms to an appreciative audience. He described the specific research methods for screening, confirmation and characterization of herbicide resistance in pre- and post-emergence grass and broadleaf weeds.
