Since resistance isn’t going anywhere, experts agree the focus needs to be on implementing weed management strategies pro-actively. These strategies should include biological, mechanical, chemical and cultural practices such as:
- Later sowing
- Clean seed
- Seed Destruction
- Different MOAs
- Full dose rates
- Alternation of:
- Monocot crops and dicot crops
- Winter and summer crops
- Pre-seed control with non-selective herbicides
