VIDEO: Fighting herbicide resistance in weeds

Provide a healthy, competitive crop stand to help battle back weed pressures

“If you don’t put a crop plant there on that spot in the field, a weed’s gonna grow,” says Rob Gulden, professor of weed science at the University of Manitoba. Gulden was referring to one strategy producers can use to help fight herbicide-resistant weeds, and that is by increasing their seeding rates. In this interview with Allan Dawson, Gulden talks about glyphosate resistance and offers more practical advice for producers who may be dealing with, or want to avoid the development of, herbicide resistant weeds.
