The simple button no longer applies to weed control. “The days of letting all the weeds come and just planning to clean them up with one application of glyphosate is not working anymore,” said Tom Mudd, marketing manager, UPL. Mudd says there are a limited number of weed control choices, making it important to preserve all of these options. Mudd says farmers recognize the problem of weed resistance, but more education is needed. “A lot of farmers are still looking for an easy solution, but it is important for us to make sure we’re getting that message out about making sure they use multiple modes of action and planning on a pre, a residual program and a post application to clean up any escapes.”
