ISU to Work on Herbicide Resistance Strategies with USDA Research Grant
Iowa State University received a grant from the USDA to study how increased food security could improve overall global food production. The research will focus on crop and pest management systems, in particular herbicide resistance in weeds. “As a leader in agriculture production, the United States plays a critical role in feeding the world. This funding is critical to finding new solutions that will enable us to feed, clothe and shelter all people.” As the number of people continues to grow worldwide, the need to improve crop security and increase access to healthy, safe food for everyone has never been higher. ISU will be working in conjunction with other universities across the United States to help remedy this issue.
