US weed scientists target resistance management

The Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) has set out a series of best management practices aimed at reducing the incidence of herbicide-resistant weeds and the threat they pose to US agricultural productivity. The main recommendations are that growers should diversify their weed management practices and the types of herbicides they use. “Today, it is common to rely on repeated use of a single class of herbicides,” says WSSA president Rod Lym. “It is clear we need a different approach if we want to protect the future effectiveness of these products, which are important tools for farmers.”
