Since Roundup Ready® crops were introduced, the technology has become the farm industry standard for many growers. But using glyphosate as the primary, or only, herbicide mode of action has resulted in an increase in glyphosate-resistant weeds. In the past year, farmland infested with glyphosate-resistant weeds increased by 20 percent to 84 million acres in the United States.1
As the number of resistant weeds increases, controlling these weeds becomes more complex. New herbicide and trait technology such as the Enlist™ Weed Control System gives growers an effective tool to use against these herbicide-resistant weeds.
In this video, Andy Asbury, Enlist field specialist, explains how weed resistance spreads and the three major steps to managing weed resistance — following a program approach with multiple modes of action, timely application of herbicides and scouting fields.
