Improved herbicide tolerance for break crops

Plain text source: 
Pulse growers demand pulse cultivars with improved tolerance to herbicides which allows effective control of dicot weeds... The project will apply the established chemical mutagenesis approach to induce mutation in lupin, chickpea and field pea and the screening techniques to select among the mutants for tolerance to herbicides capable of controlling wild radish and other dicot weeds... Improved weed control would ensure grain legumes becoming valuable crops for the sustainable cereal-legumes rotations...
