Weeds can acquire resistance to herbicides as a result of natural mutations. This property of plants is used by BASF researchers. Scientists trigger gene mutations in cultivated plants and cross these plants with one another several times. By using these traditional breeding methods, researchers obtain daughter generations with a variety of characteristics.
Agricultural Biologist Sarah Meadows and Biologist Chad Brommer test herbicide chemistry. New active ingredient candidates and advanced formulations from herbicide research have a strong commercial potential.
