Glyphosate-Resistant Waterhemp Recommendations Available to Download
Successful management of glyphosate-resistant waterhemp will require careful consideration and implementation of multiple management tactics (obviously, more than exclusive reliance on glyphosate). Weed scientists at the University of Illinois have developed recommendations that address this specific issue for the 2008 soybean crop. The recommendations were first published in the Bulletin on March 21, 2008 (Issue 1, "Glyphosate-Resistant Waterhemp in Illinois: Recommendations for Management") in an article modified from the proceedings of the 2008 University of Illinois Corn & Soybean Classics.
We've continued to explore other avenues for disseminating these recommendations. A condensed format is available to download as a PDF file from the University of Illinois Weed Science Web page and IPM Web page. The document outlines the four-step approach we believe will reduce the pernicious impact of glyphosate-resistant waterhemp in Illinois soybean fields. Considerations for the recommendations are also provided, albeit in a much-abbreviated form compared with the original publication. If you have any questions about these recommendations, we encourage you to contact us or peruse the original, full-length version in the proceedings.--Aaron Hager and Dawn Refsell
