Reducing the Risks of Herbicide Resistance: Best Management Practices and Recommendations

  • Jason K. Norsworthy (a1), Sarah M. Ward (a1), David R. Shaw (a2), Rick S. Llewellyn (a3), Robert L. Nichols (a4), Theodore M. Webster (a5), Kevin W. Bradley (a6), George Frisvold (a7), Stephen B. Powles (a8), Nilda R. Burgos (a1), William W. Witt (a9) and Michael Barrett (a9)...


Herbicides are the foundation of weed control in commercial crop-production systems. However, herbicide-resistant (HR) weed populations are evolving rapidly as a natural response to selection pressure imposed by modern agricultural management activities. Mitigating the evolution of herbicide resistance depends on reducing selection through diversification of weed control techniques, minimizing the spread of resistance genes and genotypes via pollen or propagule dispersal, and eliminating additions of weed seed to the soil seedbank. Effective deployment of such a multifaceted approach will require shifting from the current concept of basing weed management on single-year economic thresholds.
