Research Focus

The focus of this project is to conduct a series of greenhouse, laboratory, and field studies to understand the mechanism of HR in horseweed and its effective management.


Management of herbicide resistance in Horseweed using multiple spectrums of herbicides.


Results will be updated at the completion of this study.


Herbicide resistance has become a serious threat and cannot be stopped. But certain management practices can slow down the rate. This study will provide farmers with information on best practices.
