Herbicide-resistant weeds, especially those resistant to glyphosate, continue to spread at an alarming rate.
Many weed scientists predict that herbicide-resistant weeds will be the number one challenge that farmers will face in the next 10 years.
Jason Norsworthy specializes in weed science at the University of Arkansas. At a recent herbicide-resistant weed management field day near David City, Nebraska, Norsworthy discussed how glyphosate resistance has changed the face of production agriculture, particularly cotton production, in the southern U.S.–and the resulting economic effects.
We visited with Norsworthy about what that may mean for weed control in Midwest.
