Potato webcast covers weed resistance management


Herbicide-resistant weeds pose significant economic and production challenges, particularly in specialty crops such as potatoes where weed control options are limited.

And as the threat of herbicide-resistant weeds continues to grow due to these limited modes of action, growers must focus on practical considerations of weed management that minimize the risk of herbicide resistance in weeds.

In the latest ‘Focus on Potato’ webcast, titled “Managing Weed Resistance to Herbicides in the Potato Rotation,” Jed Colquhoun, weed science professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, gives users an update on herbicide-resistant weeds and a systematic way to assign herbicides to crops across the rotation in a manner that maintains weed control while utilizing multiple herbicide modes of action. Go to http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/edcenter/seminars/potato/ManagingWeedResistance/.

Dozens of other potato management presentations are available through the Focus on Potato resource at www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/fop.

Focus on Potato is a publication of the Plant Management Network. To get the most out of the Plant Management Network’s full line of resources, please sign up for PMN’s free electronic newsletter, PMN Update.

The Plant Management Network (www.plantmanagementnetwork.org) is a nonprofit online publisher whose mission is to enhance the health, management, and production of agricultural and horticultural crops. It achieves this mission through applied, science-based resources, like Focus on Potato.
