A much anticipated highlight of the Commodity Classic this year in San Antonio, Texas, March 2-4 will be an event hosted by The Weed Science Society of America (WSSA). In an effort to get firsthand stories about on-farm experience with herbicide resistance, WSSA is inviting
The group of farmers, ag retailers, crop consultants, company reps and scientists that met Wednesday in southeastern Pennsylvania represent a special slice of agriculture. They spoke of the benefit of rotating grains with lima beans and other specialty crops. They
More than a billion herbicide-resistant Palmer pigweed seed could be heading to the Midwest with every new spring migration
“We’re not going to name the company because we don’t think this is the only one distributing weed seeds in their pollinator seed,” said U. of I. crop sciences professor Aaron Hager, who led the research at Illinois.
The increased reliance on self-fertilization may help perpetuate Roundup-resistance by blocking herbicide-susceptibility genes from other plants, the researchers concluded.
The South is at war with weeds. Some 280 participants packed into a town meeting here on Monday to talk about how to regain the upper hand against a growing list of resistant adversaries such as Palmer pigweed, Italian ryegrass
