The EWRS herbicide resistance working group is holding a two-day workshop to examine current issues and challenges in resistance research management in Europe. The workshop will include invited and contributed talks from researchers, practitioners and industry representatives, as well as opportunities for discussion of key current issues. The workshop will have four major themes:

• Reporting and documenting resistance
• Resistance mechanisms (focus on non-target-site resistance)
• Ecological and evolutionary principles in resistance management
• Resistance management and adoption.

Workshop attendees are encouraged to submit a title and abstract for contributed talks at this link (call for abstracts).
