Herbicide Resistance in Crop Plants
Description of the problem it is intended to solve:
Example #1: On large scale farms, hand weeding takes too long and requires too many workers to be cost efficient ("Herbicide resistant crops"). Researchers Steven Winter and Allen Wiese provide evidence of this through their study on the economics of hand weeding sugar beets versus weeding the beets through chemical means, in which they concluded that hand weeding is much more expensive than chemical weeding (Deese). The chemicals used in this chemical weeding are known as herbicides ("Herbicide resistant crops").
