Operation Weed Eradication Radio Road Show 2/14/20


In this Operation Weed Eradication Radio Road Show, Darren Unland, Technical Marketing Manager with BASF says to eradicate pigweed, it’s important to understand its biology.

Pigweeds are dioecious, meaning they have male and female plants. For the female plant to produce seed, cross-pollination has to occur, which creates more genetic diversity and a greater chance for weed resistance to occur, even to multiple sites of action.

Operation Weed Eradication is a journey that includes a multi-year approach to cultural and mechanical practices, chemical control and eradication diligence on the farm.
