    • Roundup Ready Maize symposium: The European Perspective Glyphosate • Introduced in UK for perennial weed control in 1974 • Pre-harvest application introduced in 1980 And then it got cheaper! • Subsequently used for annual grass and broad-leaved weed control and crop dessication • Glyphosate residues commonly occur in UK bread (below MRLs) © Copyright text

    • Roundup Ready Maize symposium: The European Perspective Post-drilling use • Convenience – rather than improved weed control • Maize in France: – up to 48 hours after drilling provided soil has more than 10% clay (<24 hours and max dose of less than 360 g ae/ha if soil is sandy) – soil well structured and seed well covered © Copyright text

    • Roundup Ready Maize symposium: The European Perspective Cases of resistance to ‘Atlantis’ (mesosulfuron+iodosulfuron) in black-grass in the UK by 2008 (‘Atlantis’ introduced autumn 2003) • >250 cases confirmed in pot tests • In 21 counties • Most not ‘field failures’ • Target site resistance (Pro197) confirmed on 10 farms • Target site resistance (Trp574) confirmed on 1 farm • Both target site mutations (Pro197 & Trp574 ) on 1 farm • Enhanced metabolism also probable • 79% also ACCase (‘fop’/‘dim’) TSR © Copyright text Compilation of Bayer, Syngenta and Rothamsted results
    • Roundup Ready Maize symposium: The European Perspective The future – do we need a Plan B? • Need to embrace new technologies (e.g. remote sensing and GM) in addition to refining current technologies to reduce dose/ha of key active substances • Need to build up fertility in soils in order to: – sustain/increase yields – increase flexibility of cropping © Copyright text
