What can be learned from this brief glance at the challenges herbicide-resistant weeds present in other parts of the world? Herbicide-resistant weeds are a global issue affecting different continents. This highlights that herbicide resistance is not limited to specific regions and can emerge wherever herbicides are extensively used. Wherever glyphosate-resistant crops have gone, glyphosate-resistant weeds have been soon to follow. However, amidst the challenges, there is a positive result: there appears to be a growing global recognition of the formidable challenges these weeds pose. This recognition is encouraging because it suggests that effective solutions, once developed, can potentially be shared and adapted across different regions.
