Principles of Managing Herbicide Resistance (1 credit in NY)



This lesson presents several practical concepts related to the management of herbicide-resistant weeds in the field. We will emphasize the differences between two key management approaches relative to the presence of herbicide-resistant weeds: proactive management, or management before a herbicide-resistant population evolves, and reactive management, or management after the herbicide-resistant population is confirmed.

Students completing this lesson will:

  • Understand that diversity is an important concept in the management of herbicide-resistant weeds.
  • Identify the broad strategies and specific tactics for managing herbicide-resistant weeds.
  • Compare the value of proactive versus reactive management for herbicide-resistant weeds.
