"Challenge Accepted"


The 2nd Global Herbicide Resistance Challenge will be held May 14-18, 2017 in Denver, Colorado, USA.

The 1st  Global Herbicide Resistance Challenge was held February 18-22, 2013 in Perth, Australia.  More than 300 scientists from 38 countries representing industry, government, universities, and non-governmental organizations attended the very successful 1st Global Challenge.

The 2nd Global Challenge expects to attract scientists and professionals in research, education, government, and industry for four days of oral paper and poster presentations and networking on key herbicide resistance issues spanning the spectrum from genomics to management. 

The Scientific Program Committee is developing a program that will bring together academic and industry weed researchers, land managers, policy makers, and communication experts.  The program includes invited speakers in plant molecular genetics, non-chemical weed management, communications, socio-economics, as well as experts from insecticide, fungicide, and anticiotic resistance for an inter-disciplinary program.

We hope you and your colleagues will participate in this event.  It is a great opportunity to interact with other scientists and professionals in research, education, government, and industry for four days of oral paper and poster presentations and networking on key herbicide resistance issues spanning the spectrum from genomics to management.  Abstract submission ends on October 1, 2016.

The GHRC will kick off on Sunday, May 14, 2017, with exhibit set up, opening reception, and more!
