The Syngenta Resistance Fighter of the Year program recognizes individuals who are tackling weed resistance head on through research and educational efforts that provide growers with the solutions they need to combat this real and growing threat in the field.
Our 2009 winners demonstrate a passion for the preservation of glyphosate and the future of agriculture. They devote extensive time and effort toward their work and are helping many growers successfully manage glyphosate resistance. We know there are more individuals across the country with similar passion and devotion that are deserving of this recognition, which is why we are continuing our Resistance Fighter of the Year program.
2010 Resistance Fighter of the Year nominations are being accepted now through November 19, 2010, at www.resistancefighteroftheyear.com. Eligible nominees include retailers, consultants and county extension agents who have successfully implemented resistance management practices with producers in their area.
