The strip-tiller uses 10 different chemicals with seven modes of action, and he plans herbicide use for both crops to help control specific weeds this year and avoid a major issue when he rotates crops next year.</p> Photo: Kurt Lawton Weed resistance statistics http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/crop-chemicals/weed-resistance-statistics <div class="node-body gallery-body"><p>Weed resistance happens when a herbicide program relies on only one mode of action. This places extreme selection pressure on weed populations, which means a number of resistant weeds can survive the herbicide application, producing thousands of resistant weeds.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/crop-chemicals/weed-resistance-statistics" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/crop-chemicals/weed-resistance-statistics#comments Crop Chemicals Weeds Mon, 27 Oct 2014 18:42:00 +0000 94131 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com Analyze your weeds http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/crop-chemicals/analyze-your-weeds <div class="field-byline"> Source: Lizabeth Stahl, Extension educator in crops, and Jeff Gunsolus, Extension agronomist in weed science, University of Minnesota </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>September soybean fields in Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota displayed large numbers of escaped waterhemp.
