Scouting After a Herbicide Application and Confirming Herbicide Resistance (1 credit in NY)



Due to the extensive use of herbicides to control weeds, populations of weeds with resistance to one or more herbicides continue to increase within the USA.

The entire agricultural community must make an effort to understand herbicide resistance, learn to identify it early, and implement management tactics to reduce the evolution of herbicide-resistant weeds.

This lesson presents several practical concepts related to herbicide resistance in the field. By the end of this lesson, you will:

  • Understand the importance of scouting for herbicide-resistant weeds.
  • Know the factors that can contribute to weeds being present after a herbicide application.
  • Know how to identify herbicide resistance in the field.
  • Understand when to suspect and test for herbicide resistance in the field.
  • Know procedures for confirming herbicide resistance.
