Genetic Engineering of plants for 2, 4-D Herbicide Resistance

Date Issued:1989-06-30


This project has achieved its stated goals in that a gene which confers tolerance to 2,4-D has been isolated and engineered for expression in plants. Good tolerance levels were observed in a model plant species and efforts have now turned to cotton. The project will therefore be funded through our genetic engineering of cotton project for which a separate application will be made in the 1990/91 financial year .
