One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

A project building from cover crop and herbicide application research is exploring management strategies to improve control of tough weeds, including Palmer amaranth and glyphosate-resistant horseweed. Cover crops help reduce nutrient loss, and termination timing research will equip them to maximize the weed control value of cover crops at the same time.
