Description

While there have not been many new things in weed control/management for 2012, some that have occurred are not necessarily good. Herbicide resistance, particularly in common waterhemp has escalated significantly for populations with evolved resistance to glyphosate and resistance to HPPD herbicides has predictably has been identified in a number of locations across Iowa. Unfortunately, again as predicted, no new “silver bullets” have surfaced and in fact, it is unlikely that new herbicide mechanisms of action will be introduced in the foreseeable future. Thus it comes that much more important to recognize the tactics that are available and establish a diverse long-term approach to using the tools in a sustainable manner.
