The spread of herbicide-resistant weeds is a growing problem in many parts of the United States, and the number of weed species with resistance to glyphosate and other herbicides has risen dramatically; contributing to lower yields and profits for farmers. An interdisciplinary team of weed scientists, economists and sociologists led by Mike Owen, university professor and weed specialist with Iowa State University and Outreach, are working to develop effective approaches to address this growing problem of herbicide resistant weeds.
