effects of transgenic plants

Postby kanagasundar » Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:33 am

Hi all,
What is difference between control weeds by transgenic plants, chemical herbicide and bioherbicide? Chemical herbicide control weed through spray chemicals but how transgenic plants control weeds? I need our suggestion and share your idea.

transgenic plants do not control weeds per se. However, some (not all!) of transgenic plants have resistance to herbicides so they can be used in higher concentration and thus assure elimination of weeds with one time application.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
