Herbicide-tolerant Plant Varieties

Herbicide-tolerant Plant Varieties

A Sustainable Weedkilling Tool?


Ouvrage collectif

Edition 2014

So-called "herbicide-tolerant" varieties of sunflower and oilseed rape have been introduced in France since 2009. Intended to make weedkilling easy, these varieties resist a given herbicide, meaning theoretically that the herbicide can be applied without risk to the crop. Cultivating such varieties has sparked social protest, resulting in herbicide-tolerant sunflower crops being denounced and pulled up as "hidden GMO". In this context, the Ministries of Agriculture and the Environment have requested Inra and CNRS to report on available knowledge on all impacts of cultivating these varieties.
