Resistance to antibiotics and herbicides are challenges with much in common. Antibiotic resistance became a risk in the 1950s, but a concerted global effort to manage it did not begin until after 2000. Widespread herbicide use began during the 1950s, and not long after there has been an unabated rise in resistance. Here we examine what lessons for combatting herbicide resistance could be taken from the global, co-ordinated efforts of all stakeholders to avert the antibiotic resistance crisis.
