Here’s quick look at weed control strategies and their cost.
Recognizing the presence of herbicide-resistant weeds and formulating a total management plan is becoming more important than ever.
Beyond the possibility of resistance developing, ineffective control exacts cost to growers in lost yield.
Sophisticated tank mixes, multiple adjuvants and surfactants — this is the future of herbicide application.
There are lessons to be learned for the Midwest from the places where Palmer amaranth resistance to glyphosate first emerged.
