American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by BASF.

Many factors play into the development of weed resistance, from using too few sites of action to overusing the same product. However, multiple strategies can be applied in the field by growers to preserve chemistries and prevent weed resistance. By following product labels, making timely herbicide applications and using the right sprayer technology, growers are able to effectively manage weed resistance risks in the field.
