A new polymer-based, solid-state transistor can more sensitively detect a weed killer in drinking water than existing hydrogel-based fluorescence sensor chips. The details were published in Chemistry‚ÄďA European Journal.

Cover crop could solve weed problems for edamame growers

For vegetable growers, weeds can mean lost income from reduced yield and foreign plant matter contaminating the harvest. But for many crops, particularly vegetable legumes, weed management options are very limited.

Global warming will heighten agriculture weed threat

Working with computer models to predict the likely impact of climate change on invasive weed propagation, Dr. Farzin Shabani from Flinders University's Global Ecology Lab found a likely increase in areas of habitat suitability ...
