Ford Baldwin of Practical Weed Consultants, LLC, in Austin, Ark., says Midwest growers are just two years away from losing glyphosate as an effective herbicide – just as Southern farmers already have. "It's now a grass herbicide in the South," said Baldwin, who was speaking on "Weed Resistance 2.0" during Beck's Hybrid Media Day in Atlanta, IN. "We can no longer build a herbicide program around it. It's not just a broadleaf weed (herbicide) anymore.”

In the Midwest, he sees the same resistant weeds and the same denial agronomic practices need to change. “The same mentality is in place. ... That's just two years away from a train wreck," he says.
