Stewardship and Resistance Management! §  Respect the Rotation! §  Rotate Crops. Switch the crops you plant in each field frequently to help diversify weed management tools. ! §  Rotate Herbicide-Tolerant Traits. Alternate herbicide-tolerant traits and/or use herbicide-tolerant stacks for more efficient rotation.! §  Rotate Modes of Action. Reduce selection pressure of a single mode of action by using multiple modes of action during each growing season and from year to year. !

§  It’s best to use multiple practices, as no single strategy is likely to be completely effective. ! §  It’s important to take every opportunity to stop surviving weeds from producing seed. This will reduce the soil seed bank and the selection pressure, slowing the development of resistant weeds. !
