Weed Science

WEED BIOLOGY, ECOLOGY, RESISTANCE AND MANAGEMENT

Objective: First, determine strategies for optimizing weed control while simultaneously reducing inputs through discovering methods to enhance herbicide performance. By enhancing weed control, fewer herbicide applications will be necessary. A system approach to understanding the biology and ecology of individual weed species is needed to create effective control programs. Second, study the biology of resistant weeds and discover the mechanisms of herbicide resistance and identify alternative control approaches for stakeholders.
