Got weeds? U of M Extension has resources

Managing herbicide resistance and controlling resistant weeds is a challenge. The U of MN Extension Crops Team is offering new video and web resources to help manage these difficult to control weeds:
  • Weed management website – includes resources on herbicide resistance management, weed identification, herbicide application and chemistry, and research reports.
  • Herbicide resistant waterhemp (video) – Waterhemp has an extended emergence pattern, making it difficult to control. Results from a 2015 trial demonstrating the effectiveness of layering residual herbicides for herbicide-resistant waterhemp control are shown in this video.
  • Herbicide resistant giant ragweed (video series) – Due to its large seed and early emergence, giant ragweed can be difficult to control. This video series describes a study looking at alternative management practices to control this herbicide-resistant weed.
