Herbicide resistance is becoming a real problem.
And together we're going to do something about it
The latest on Herbicide Resistance
Did you know:
Multiple resistance in weeds is the result of two or more separate resistance mechanisms in the same plant, whereas cross-resistance is the result of only a single resistance mechanism
6 weed management “non-negotiables” that will help growers get a handle on resistance according to weed scientist Jeff Stachler
1. Practice perimeter weed management: Anywhere weeds have a competitive advantage has to be addressed and not allowed to produce seeds
2. Practice zero tolerance: Allow no weeds to reproduce
3. Scout your fields
4. Diversify weed management strategies
5. Start clean: All weeds must be removed before planting
6. Maximize herbicide activity: Growers must choose the most effective herbicide(s) for the most difficult weeds in the field
