Widespread use of glyphosate (a highly effective herbicide) for corn and soybean has led to glyphosate resistance, and recent surveys suggest that acreage with glyphosate-resistant weeds is expanding. This report explores a number of issues related to the decline of glyphosate's effectiveness and choices for managing resistance to it.
