Three-quarters of Canadian farmers say that herbicide-resistant weeds are impacting their profits, according to a survey by Ipsos Reid conducted on behalf of BASF. Of the 500 farmers questioned, 7% considered the impact to be “large”, 20% “moderate” and 47% “small”. The majority (56%) agreed that weeds were getting “tougher to control”, while 43% disagreed. Almost all (96%) said that they used products from more than one herbicide group to manage their weeds.
