Herbicide resistant weeds reduce yields, increase dockage and limit the herbicide options available to manage weeds in your fields. Identifying herbicide resistance in your fields early is important for proper selection of herbicides and the ability to manage resistance effectively.
Quality and quantity of weed seed is critical when it comes to submitting samples to diagnostic labs, like the Saskatchewan Agriculture Crop Protection Lab, for herbicide resistance testing. Watch below as provincial weed control specialist Clark Brenzil demonstrates techniques to collecting and submitting samples to the Crop Protection Laboratory for herbicide resistance testing.
