Weed Control Strategies
Innovative herbicide-tolerant soybeans systems and the development and spread of herbicide-resistant weeds have increased the complexity of weed management. Problem weeds steal moisture, nutrients and yield from soybeans. To preserve existing herbicide technology, research is identifying weed control strategies that incorporate diverse practices, including herbicides with multiple modes of action, cover crops, tillage and more. Many checkoff-funded tools, resources and research projects support effective weed control to protect soybean yield.
Weeds steal nutrients and water and cut soybean yields. Herbicide resistance adds to the challenge and complexity of managing weeds. Farmers, researchers and others in the soybean industry discuss weed problems and effective management. Join the conversation on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
