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 lesson presents an introduction to the fundamentals of herbicide resistances. By the end of this lesson, you will: 

  • Understand what herbicide resistance is and how it evolves in the field.

  • Recognize the factors that influence selection for herbicide resistance.

  • Define the different types of herbicide resistance.
