Caption: Herbicide resistant crops. Field of soya bean (Glycine max) plants with a maize plant (Zea mays, centre) growing as a weed. The soya beans are genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready plants. They have had a gene introduced by genetic engineering that allows resistance to this herbicide. A Roundup Ready crop can therefore be sprayed with the herbicide to kill weeds without damaging the soya beans. However, the maize is also a Roundup Ready plant, so it cannot be killed using Roundup. The farmer may be able to eliminate this volunteer crop by using a different herbicide. Photographed in Kansas, USA.
