Weed Resistance: Weeds Find a Way!

The agricultural industry is constantly adapting new ways to responsibly manage weeds while producing a safe product for consumers, and minimize negative effects on the environment.

Plants naturally evolve to decrease vulnerability to threats. This process has been occurring as long as crops have been grown.

Farmers must use all the tools at their disposal to fight weeds, and the crop industry continually adjusts to develop solutions. To manage weed resistance, farmers employ a varied system of technologies and practices.*
