Montana State Online Course on Herbicide Physiology

This online course is offered during the Fall 2016 term (Aug. 29 – Dec. 16). This course covers topics in herbicide classification, herbicide mode of action, and resistance mechanisms. The goals of the course are: to understand the fundamental physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology of herbicides and their effects on plants; to study the physiological mechanisms of herbicide resistance; to examine the processes by which herbicides are discovered and developed for commercial release; and to investigate typical herbicide non-performance scenarios and practice troubleshooting field complaint situations.
