Weed Management & Crop Protection

The primary goals of the weed management program are to evaluate and develop cost-effective weed management programs and new technologies in alfalfa, corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, sunflowers, and wheat. Specific areas of research include herbicide evaluation, adjuvant comparisons with herbicides, and herbicide-resistant weed investigations and management strategies. It is imperative that these programs are cost effective and environmentally friendly.

Research in Weed Management and Crop Protection focuses on:

  • Chemical grass and broadleaf weed control in crops
  • Non-chemical management practices for grass and weed control
  • Development and control of herbicide-resistant weed populations
  • Effective use of spray adjuvants
  • Experimental herbicide comparisons
