The advent of glyphosate resistant weeds has and will continue to complicate pre-plant weed removal. Farmers need to match herbicide resistance management and control options with targeted weed species to ensure not only an effective kill, but also to avoid limiting control options later. Glyphosate-resistant giant ragweed has been confirmed in Ontario, and farmers set… Read More

Responsible, appropriate use of antimicrobial products is a cornerstone of managing resistance to these products in both humans and livestock. For many outside the livestock industry, a lack of understanding about the use of these products, their administration and withdrawal times has created misconceptions and undue concern over the risk of antimicrobial resistance in beef… Read More
