More growers are starting to see glyphosate-resistant weeds in their own fields. Many growers have made adjustments to their weed control programs to manage glyphosate-resistant weeds based on advice from a local expert.
We applaud those who are counseling growers to proactively implement sound resistance management practices, such as incorporating pre-emergence residuals or tank mixing at burndown, rotating crops and scouting their fields for glyphosate resistance. Those individuals inspired us to create the Resistance Fighter of the Year program.
The Resistance Fighter of the Year program recognizes those who serve as role models and provide growers with guidance they need to manage weeds successfully in their operations. For more information, visit www.resistancefighteroftheyear.com.
Nominations are being accepted through Monday, November 30, 2009. Eligible nominees include retailers, consultants and county extension agents who have successfully implemented resistance management practices with producers in their area.
Who has influenced weed management practices in your operation? Should they be considered for Resistance Fighter of the Year?
