Resistance is defined as the inherited ability of a plant to survive and reproduce
following exposure to a herbicide dose normally lethal to the wild type (WSSA, 2017). Two
important points of this definition are that the resistance trait(s) must be heritable (passed on
to progeny) and that the resistance response is compared to that of herbicide-susceptible
plants (“the wild type”).
