Abstract

Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum), an economically damaging weed, is cross pollinated, genetically diverse and resistance prone. Currently, wild radish has evolved resistance to herbicides of different modes of action. However, resistance mechanisms to photosystem II (PSII), phytoene desaturase (PDS) and 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD) inhibitors are not fully understood. In this PhD thesis, resistance mechanisms to these herbicide groups were investigated. Results revealed that both target-site and non-target-site resistance mechanisms endow the herbicide resistance. This knowledge is important for understanding herbicide resistance evolution in wild radish, and for developing management strategies.
