Crop management and agronomical and environmental consequences of sugarbeet resistant to a non-selective herbicide

63e Congres Institut International de Recherches Betteravieres, Interlaken, Switzerland, 9-10 fevrier 2000: 209-220

Crop management and agronomical and environmental consequences of sugarbeet resistant to a non-selective herbicide

Since 1995, ITB has been experimenting with transgenic sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris) tolerant to non-selective herbicides (glyphosate and glufosinate) to assess their performance and impact on the management of beet fields. The impact is evaluated on both the development of weed beet populations and the management of several crops tolerant to the same herbicide. Weed beet have been present in beet fields since the late 1960s and are currently found on 4.5% of the beet cultivation area.
