Organic  growers can face tough challenges when it comes to weed control.  But new research published in the journal Weed Science shows weather conditions and well-timed cultural management techniques can make a big difference.
With the introduction of crops engineered for resistance to the auxin herbicides, concern has soared about unintentional injury to auxin-sensitive crops through off-target spray drift, volatility
A study featured in the journal Weed Science is certain to keep many corn and soybean growers up at night. Researchers have identified a waterhemp population in Missouri that is resistant to a record-breaking
Australian farmers have long considered harvest-time weed seed control their “last chance” opportunity to battle herbicide-resistant weeds that survive in-crop treatments. The only downside is that commonly used
Chinese privet is a common fixture in the southeastern United States – typically found growing in dense thickets along roadsides, on rights of way and in forests. One common control strategy is to cut away the shrub’s thick foliage and
Scientists at Purdue University have just answered an important question that has plagued many corn and soybean growers. Why does mixing glyphosate with other selective herbicides sometimes fail to control glyphosate-resistant giant ragweed plants?
Today genetically engineered, glyphosate-resistant crops are often singled out as a major contributor in the evolution of herbicide-resistant weeds. But a new data analysis featured in the journal Weed Science shows it may be time to revisit that common assumption.
What if you could predict which nonnative plant species would become invasive weeds and when? Would it change your weed management plan?
Waterhemp is already one of the most problematic weeds in the Midwest and South. But researchers writing in the latest edition of the journal Weed Science say its control challenges are getting even tougher.
Scientists have discovered an important new reason to focus on removal of invasive plant species. A recent study featured in the journal Invasive Plant Science and Management shows that removing invaders alongside a stream or river can greatly improve the biodiversity of aquatic organisms.
With herbicide resistance on the rise, more farmers are making tillage the foundation of their integrated weed management program. But new research shows that when tillage occurs can make a big difference
Palmer amaranth is widely considered to be one of the most damaging and difficult to control agricultural weeds in North America. A lot of time and attention has been devoted to herbicide-resistant Palmer amaranth
