Modern Weed Management by Gupta OP
Book Summary:
This grossly updated fourth edition of Modern Weed Management is a unique review of the sample material that reflects the fast emerging issues in weed science research eg concerns about our environmental safety in the use of herbicides; the changing patterns of weed species dominance; the development of herbicide resistance in races within the weed species; genetic engineering leading to purposeful induction of herbicide resistance in crops; and the like. What sets this book apart from the other valuable ones on the subject is the fact that the entire research and development pathway is presented in an orderly manner, with proper brevity.
