Description: The term ?herbicide-resistant crop? (HRC) describes crops made resistant to herbicides by either transgene technology or by selection in cell or tissue culture for mutations that confer herbicide resistance. HRCs are also referred to as herbicide-tolerant crops. Most of the success and controversy about HRCs concerns transgenic HRCs, so this article will focus on these products. Transgenic HRCs are the predominant transgenic crops, and the number of hectares planted in these crops has increased dramatically worldwide since they were introduced in 1994, reaching almost 60 million hectares in 2004 (ISAAA, 2005).
