Louis Sutton recommends using this list of nine things that farmers need to pay attention to for effective weed control and resistance management.
The struggle to survive is as fierce in weeds as it is in any species. With the introduction of herbicide-tolerant traits in 1996, weeds have adapted by becoming resistant to certain herbicides.
Early weed control is critical to maximizing yield potential. Weed competition costs yield and research proves just how much.
Herbicide resistance continues to become an ever more challenging aspect of crop production. Currently, fifteen weed species in North America are confirmed glyphosate resistant.
