Weed Control Challenge

Glyphosate-resistant kochia has been confirmed in Western Canada.This highly competitive weed is hard to kill, and can take over railways andutility grounds. Kochia is a tumbleweed that’s able to travel long distances,dispersing seeds along the way. If you already have glyphosate-resistant kochia in your area, you need an immediate change to your weed management strategy. And if it hasn’t hit your area, it’s time to introduce new modes of action as part of a proactive resistance management plan.
