Controlling glyphosate resistant weeds is a challenge. It’s a challenge that can be strewn with complications as well. Timing is a key factor in the control of glyphosate resistant weeds and if that timing is thrown off by any number of factors, a complicated situation can lead to a herbicide injury situation. That’s precisely the situation Weed Specialist Peter Sikkema of the University of Guelph wants to help producers avoid. As part of a workshop to help producers identify herbicide injury in soybeans, Sikkema showed producers various symptoms of herbicide injury as a result of improper use.
In this episode of the Soybean School, Professor Sikkema brings us through a number of different scenarios in which herbicide injury can occur as we attempt to control glyphosate resistant weeds.
