When talking to farmers, we all have certain years that come to mind. “2005-The year of Pigweed resistance to roundup,” “2013-Wet summer with rank hay,” “2016-The year of no rain.” […]
Soil-residual herbicides are important components of integrated weed management programs. Reducing the number of weeds exposed to foliar-applied herbicides helps reduce the selection intensity for weeds resistant to foliar-applied herbicides.
In the fight against herbicide resistance, farmers are working with a shrinking toolkit. Waterhemp, a weedy nemesis of corn and soybean farmers, has developed resistance to multiple herbicide modes of […]
As you begin developing your weed management plan, here are six key management practices and five key timings to improve control of herbicide-resistant weeds this year.

With cold spring conditions this year, cover crop plant growth has been delayed and questions have come up as to whether that should affect timing of cover crop termination. In […]
To prevent weed resistance, it is always good to start with a pre-emergence program, said Paul O. Johnson, SDSU Extension Weed Science Coordinator.
