Molecular control of wild radish using SP11 protein
Plain text source:
Despite the prolonged chemical onslaught against wild radish, it persists within farming systems... With funding from the Weeds CRC (2005-08 Molecular Control of Reproduction in Weeds) an initial proof-of-concept study showed that targeting seed production through interference with the molecular basis of fertilisation could form the foundation of practical alternative weed control strategies... Subsequent investments from the GRDC, Australian Weeds Research Centre, University of Melbourne and the CSIRO have confirmed the findings of the initial study...
