What is your greatest weed challenge? Have you seen an increase in certain resistant weeds? Have you tried any new approaches to weed control now that the old “hit ‘em with glyphosate” doesn’t work like it used to?

One of the biggest challenges we face is getting growers to utilize several modes & sites of action in their weed management programs. We need to do a better job of teaching growers about how to effectively utilize the tools we have at our disposal in their fields.

Water hemp and mares tail are the culprit
