Bayer opens Weed Resistance Competence Center in Frankfurt, Germany

FRANKFURT, MAIN/GERMANY: Bayer CropScience opened Weed Resistance Competence Center (WRCC) in Frankfurt, Germany on 19 November 2014. This is a major step forward in tackling weed resistance, as it will develop new weed control strategies, and share knowledge within the global community of farmers, agronomists and scientists.

As a scientific institution, the WRCC will act as Bayer CropScience’s global reference center for weed resistance management. The core activities of its 12 full-time personnel cover three areas: understanding weed resistance mechanisms and their evolution in the field; developing and testing new weed control strategies; and sharing Bayer CropScience’s knowledge and weed control solutions with the entire value chain.

“Bayer clearly recognizes the threat weed resistance poses to our business and to agriculture in general. The WRCC will help us learn from the past and develop solutions that secure harvests in the long run,” said Harry Strek, Head of WRCC.
