Due to their superior efficacy and time-saving nature, herbicides are the most popular and effective weed control products. However, prolonged use of herbicides has resulted in a slew of issues, including weed resistance, shift weed in shift flora, and environmental risks. Herbicide resistance is a very important problem in the globe today as a result of all of these issues. The major causes of herbicide resistance are a lack of rotation and the use of herbicides with a protracted residue period. Herbicide resistance is a global problem, and the number of resistant weed biotypes is growing at an alarming rate. There are 480 occurrences of herbicide resistance in 252 plant species at the moment. Weed resistance to herbicides should be reduced as much as possible because it is a major limiting factor in food security. A thorough understanding of development and resistance mechanisms would aid in its control. Integrated weed management approaches, including as crop and herbicide rotations, herbicide combinations, and cultural, mechanical, and biological weed control, are used to combat herbicide resistance.
