Weed Control Strategies

Apr 2024

Controlling weeds has gotten more complicated, thanks to advanced herbicide-tolerant soybean systems and the spready of herbicide-resistant weeds. Weeds steal soybean yield as they compete for moisture, nutrients and light. Research is identifying effective management strategies that use multiple herbicide modes of action, precise application timing, cover crops and more. Check out a variety of checkoff-funded research, tools and resources aimed at projecting yields and preserving herbicide technology.
