New Extension Publication on BMPs for Managing Herbicide Resistance

Mayweed Chamomile herbicide resistance.

Herbicide resistance has been a focus of WSU Weed Science for several years. The overreliance on herbicides for weed control has brought us to a situation where we are quickly running out of effective herbicide options for some of our most problematic weeds. The only way to slow the loss of effective herbicides is to adopt integrated weed management approaches for weed control.
Best Management Practices for Managing Herbicide Resistance (PNW754) is a new regional extension publication that presents growers and farm managers with best management practices (BMPs) that can be incorporated into farming systems to manage herbicide resistance. The graphics-heavy, 12-page publication can be used as a go-to resource for developing an integrated weed management plan for your farming operation.""
