Unappreciated border biosecurity risks related to herbicide-resistant biotypes in imported seeds (New)

Researchers will quantify herbicide-resistant seed contaminants imported in ryegrass and clover seeds using spray trials, glass house trials, and innovative genetic tests. The study will provide evidence on the scale of the issue and direction for potential genetic screening or import standards.
