As manager for weed resistance strategies for Syngenta, my number one priority is helping producers fight weed resistance. But, obviously, the war on glyphosate resistance cannot be fought by one person. Syngenta understands that consultants, retailers and county extension agents across the U.S. are playing a vital role in helping producers combat weed resistance and believes they deserve to be recognized for their efforts. That is why we launched The Resistance Fighter of the Year program.
