Herbicide resistance, particularly in black-grass, is a major threat to the sustainability of UK arable farming – it is a problem the farming industry can’t ignore. Key to managing resistance is understanding how it develops at a cellular and field scale.
To test your herbicide resistance knowledge, we’ve created a quiz which assesses your understanding of the different types of resistance, how to test for resistance, how to manage resistance in the field and much more!
Our Ultimate Guide to Herbicide Resistance explains the science behind weed resistance, and how best to incorporate the information into your weed control management strategy.
Trials can provide a great source for ideas but putting them into practice commercially can be challenging.
Resistance tests on grass-weeds, especially black-grass, can provide you with valuable information to help plan control strategies.
