In this chapter, we will first consider the modes of action of the principal herbicides used with HTVs, and the mechanisms at work in plants and microorganisms showing resistance to these substances. Next we will describe the various techniques for introducing the HT trait into cultivated varieties (cultivars). Finally, we will present the principal HTV-herbicide pairs that have been obtained with these techniques up to the present time.
