Due to shortages of Roundup and Liberty, AMVAC Technical Service Manager Joe Bruce is seeing more interest in other chemistries. “It seems like growers and retailers are looking at Plan A, B, C and D because there are so many issues out there with supply. Several of our products are coming into the picture often because of the shortages that are out there.” Bruce says farmers can’t take their eye off the ball when it comes to weed resistance. “Growers really need to use a good pre-emergence residual-based program to help combat any of these weeds that potentially have resistance. They’ll end up with better control overall regardless of what program they are utilizing.”
