Effective weed control is essential to the future of farming. Herbicide resistant weeds increasingly threaten the ability to produce crops economically. Proactive management is essential for minimizing the impact of herbicide resistant weeds and maintaining marketing options. While weeds do not respect borders, trade issues have arisen with the use of specific herbicides on certain crops or the presence of particular weed seeds. Tammy will look at strategies to identify new weed problems, manage herbicide resistant weeds, and minimize marketing concerns for long-term farm profitability.
