Farmers could breed herbicide-resistant crops, making it possible to apply non-selective herbicides without impacting their product.
Farmers could breed herbicide-resistant crops, making it possible to apply non-selective herbicides without impacting their product.

Genetically-modified crops with a herbicide-tolerant trait designed to improve environmental properties without the onus of heavy chemicals. This solution counteracts the herbicide-resistant weed problem present in many agronomic cropping systems.

Species of soybean, cotton, corn, and canola are being developed with resistance to additional herbicide chemistries, including dicamba and 2,4-D in soy. The types of gene-editing used to enhance tolerance traits include selection, mutation, or targeted editing through CRISPR/Cas9.
