In a review published in the March-April Crop Science, author Sudheesh Manalil examines the biological, genetic, and operational factors that favored Lolium rigidum to evolve as a troublesome weed. In addition to being a practical lesson to frame future herbicide resistance management strategies for troublesome weeds in global agriculture, this review explores the biological and genetic attributes that aid L. rigidum to augment minor resistance mechanisms and provide auxiliary advantage for this weed to adapt to any artificial selection pressure imposed by herbicides.
