Italian ryegrass is a common herbicide-resistant weed.

Corteva Agriscience and AgPlenus, part of the computational biology firm Evogene, will collaborate to develop herbicides based on new modes of action. Farmers have not had access to a new mode of action for weed control for 30 years, and many weeds are now resistant to common herbicides. Corteva will contribute its expertise in crop protection R&D, while AgPlenus will bring its computational platform and its assessment of several families of chemicals shown to have herbicidal activity connected to new modes of action.
