CROP TOLERANCE TO WEEDS

in HortScience

Plant breeders have successfully increased crop tolerance to many pests and physiological stresses. However, very little work has examined the potential for increasing levels of tolerance to weeds, despite weed control costs of several billion dollars annually. Evidence will be summarized from the literature supporting the contention that genotypic differences in tolerance to neighboring plants exist. Approaches to screening for tolerance, choice of selection environment, and genotype identification will be discussed.
