What is Herbicide Resistance? (1 credit in NY)



Herbicide resistance can be defined as the acquired ability of a weed population to survive a herbicide application that previously was known to control the population. In this case ‘acquired’ refers to the fact that resistance evolves in relationship to how a herbicide is used over time in a weed management system. This module presents an introduction to the fundamentals of herbicide resistances.
