Missouri Farmers Manage Herbicide-Resistant Weeds Missouri farmers are coping with herbicide-resistant weeds, including one – waterhemp – that is resistant to three different herbicide chemistries, including glyphosate, ALS-inhibitors and PPO products. Agricultural scientists in the state also have their eye on Palmer amaranth and giant ragweed, watching for possible development of glyphosate and/or ALS resistance. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that Missouri typically grows twice the number of acres of soybeans than it does of corn. “This makes the standard corn-soybean rotation, which would help us better control herbicide-resistant weeds, less of an option for our growers,� Dr. Bradley explains. “In many cases, we have continuous cropping of Roundup ReadyŽ soybeans with little or no rotation.� He says in soybeans, there are simply no good postemergence herbicide options to control waterhemp that is resistant to these three modes of action. “You have to control this weed with preplant or preemergence residual herbicides, or you won’t control it.� Dr. Bradley adds that in-crop cultivation is still an option for these situations, but that few, if any farmers are using cultivation any more. To achieve the best control, he suggests planting into a weedfree field by using burndown herbicides and preplant residual herbicides. “In corn, HarnessŽ Xtra, Degree XtraŽ, Bicep II MagnumŽ, Guardsman MaxŽ and LexarŽ are generally good premergence herbicide options for the weed spectrum typically encountered in Missouri, but a postemergence herbicide


The pigweed species Palmer amaranth is quickly becoming the number one weed challenge for Arkansas cotton growers. The problem: Much of the Palmer amaranth population is resistant to two popular herbicide chemistries, ALS-inhibitors and glyphosate. “About 50 percent of our Palmer amaranth populations are resistant to ALS herbicides,� says Dr. Ken Smith, extension weed specialist for the University of Arkansas. “We also are seeing more glyphosate resistance in Palmer amaranth.� The weed scientist notes that Palmer amaranth can be difficult to control even when it isn’t glyphosate resistant. “The flushes and populations of this weed just keep coming,� Smith says. While the ALS herbicide resistance in Palmer amaranth is more widespread, the fact that Arkansas farmers rely so much more on glyphosate than any other single herbicide is exacerbating the problem. “The herbicide-resistant Palmer amaranth has really gotten our farmers’ attention,� Smith says. “Our most conscientious farmers are already making a good attempt to stay on top of the problem. If they see weed escapes, they work on them.� He says farmers should always use a residual herbicide of some kind in Roundup ReadyŽ and Roundup Ready Flex cotton, either preplant or preemergence. “For instance, ValorŽ or ReflexŽ herbicides work well as part of a burndown treatment and provide residual control of Palmer amaranth well into the growing season,� he explains.

Regular use of preplant and preemergence residual herbicides is strongly recommended in all crops, particularly Roundup ReadyŽ and Roundup Ready Flex cotton. “If a grower has herbicide-resistant weeds, he needs to control them with residual herbicides at the beginning of the growing season,� Dr. York says. “In many cases, if you don’t control these weeds with preemergence herbicides, then you won’t control them.� He says where possible, 2, 4-D should be used in preplant burndown herbicide treatments. “This herbicide is economical and helps control glyphosate-resistant marestail, in addition to other toughto-control weeds,� Dr. York explains. Residual herbicides are also strongly recommended for overthe-top and layby post-directed applications in Roundup Ready and Roundup Ready Flex cotton. “It is very important to use residual herbicides and herbicides with different modes of action across all crops, including cotton, corn and soybeans,� Dr. York emphasizes. He recommends using a residual herbicide such as ValorŽ with 2, 4-D and glyphosate tank mixes when making burndown treatments, when possible. “Otherwise, use a preemergence residual herbicide,� he adds.

d t w o c r e at i v e

The widespread use of burndown herbicide tank mixes is necessary in Louisiana due to the winter annual weed spectrum. Also, late-germinating weeds such as brown top millet and broadleaf signalgrass are best controlled postemergence and at layby with a tank-mix combination of herbicides. “Farmers should continue making post-directed herbicide applications at layby in Roundup Ready Flex cotton,� explains Dr. Stewart. “This technology reduces the need for application precision, enabling growers to make their layby applications a little faster.�

That patch of weeds may be there for any one of a hundred reasons, and herbicide resistance might be one of them.


Dr. Stewart acknowledges that Louisiana isn’t completely untouched by weed-resistance issues. Weed resistance to ALS-inhibitor herbicides exists in some areas, though farmers are doing a good job managing around that resistance issue. “What we don’t have is the glyphosate-resistant marestail that is a problem in other Delta states,� the weed scientist says. “With the tall waterhemp and johnsongrass, we’re in the very early stages of these weeds potentially being identified as herbicideresistant.�

Dr. Sandy Stewart, Louisiana State University

Dr. Stewart suggests that farmers in Louisiana remain proactive and perhaps take some other steps to delay the development of herbicide-resistant weeds. He offers these additional tips for effective weed management: s #ONTINUEUSINGTWO WAYOREVENTHREE WAYHERBICIDETANK mixes for burndown treatments ahead of planting.

There are currently four herbicide-resistant weed species confirmed in South Dakota: ALS-resistant kochia, ALS-resistant wild sunflower, glyphosate-tolerant common ragweed and ACCase-resistant wild oats. This list may well increase soon if state farmers don’t take some countermeasures in their weedcontrol programs, according to a South Dakota State University weed scientist. Dr. Mike Moechnig, SDSU extension weed specialist in Brookings, says other weeds are showing potential for resistance development, including glyphosate-tolerant horseweed and wild buckwheat, and ALS-inhibitor-resistant common waterhemp. “When rotating Roundup ReadyŽ Corn 2 and Roundup Ready Soybeans, I recommend use of residual herbicides to at least partially reduce selection for glyphosate-resistant weeds,� Dr. Moechnig says. While Roundup Ready crops generally provide the best weedcontrol options, rotations with other crops, such as wheat and sunflowers, help minimize selection for glyphosate-resistant weeds, the scientist adds. Dr. Moechnig estimates that less than 25 percent of Roundup Ready soybean acres in the state are treated with a residual herbicide, but that percentage may increase as weeds become more difficult to control and soybean prices increase.

Higher fuel prices also make tank-mixing of residual herbicides with glyphosate for early postemergence applications a more attractive option for farmers who are trying to minimize trips across their fields, Dr. Moechnig adds. To delay the development of herbicide-resistant weeds, he offers the following tips for effective weed management:

Also on farmer radar in Arkansas is glyphosate-resistant marestail, or horseweed. This weed is currently a lesser problem than Palmer amaranth, according to Smith. “A burndown program that includes a residual herbicide provides good control of glyphosate-resistant marestail,� he adds. He suggests tillage, post-directed sprays and hoe crews as other effective control options.

Unlike other Mississippi River Delta states, Louisiana farmers have not yet had to deal with herbicide-resistant weeds and grasses on a major scale. The reason may lie in certain cultural practices used in cotton production that help delay or prevent the development of herbicide-resistant weeds, according to Dr. Sandy Stewart, extension cotton specialist at Louisiana State University. “If you look at a map of the Cotton Belt that shows where herbicide-resistant weeds are a problem, Louisiana is in an outlying area,� Dr. Stewart explains. “Some of our cotton production practices, such as using tank mixes of different herbicides for both preplant burndown treatments and over-thetop applications in Roundup ReadyŽ and Roundup Ready Flex cotton, are helping our cause.�

s 2OTATESOYBEANSTOCORNWHENPOSSIBLE4HISROTATION helps break up weed cycles, and corn has a good arsenal of herbicides to choose from that will prevent the development of resistant weeds or manage weeds like waterhemp, which may have already developed resistance.

Maximize Your Weed Control to Minimize the Risk of Weed Resistance Dr. Ken Smith, University of Arkansas

To help preserve the effectiveness of Roundup ReadyÂŽ Technology and minimize the development of herbicide-resistant weeds, Dr. Smith and the Arkansas Herbicide Resistance Committee, a group of academics, consultants and industry representatives, offer these additional tips:


Start clean and control weeds early.

2. Use Roundup ReadyÂŽ Technology as your foundation.

North Carolina Farmers Focus on Fighting Herbicide-Resistant Weeds Glyphosate- and ALS-resistant Palmer amaranth and glyphosateresistant marestail remain the only two herbicide-resistant weeds of economic significance in North Carolina, and a concentrated effort is under way to keep these weeds under control to prevent their spread, according to Dr. Alan York, extension weed specialist with North Carolina State University.

Dr. Kevin Bradley, University of Missouri

To achieve the best possible weed management in both Roundup ReadyÂŽ Corn 2 and Roundup Ready soybeans, and to delay or prevent the development of weed resistance, Dr. Bradley offers Missouri farmers these additional tips:
