Seeing is Believing for Growers at Bayer CropScience Respect the Rotation Events

Thousands of growers, agricultural retailers and consultants throughout the Midwest and Southeast got a firsthand look at the impact that herbicide-resistant weeds can have on their farming operations and, potentially, to their bottom line, thanks to eight Respect the Rotation™ field events held at research facilities and farms during the summer of 2012. What they saw was both frightening and motivating.

From Palmer amaranth towering over attendees’ heads in soybeans and cotton to waterhemp and kochia choking out Midwestern row crops, the images were vivid and the message was clear – best management practices, including rotation of crops, herbicide-tolerant traits and modes of action, is needed to keep weed species that are resistant to glyphosate, ALS products and other herbicides under control.

Respect the Rotation is an initiative backed by Bayer CropScience and university partners throughout the country to demonstrate the urgent need for proactive management of difficult-to-control weeds and reinforce the principles of Integrated Weed Management. At each event, university weed scientists, industry experts and growers discussed current and potential issues regarding herbicide-resistant weeds in their respective geographies. Specialists from the Mid-South attended some Midwestern events to share stories of trying to manage overwhelming resistant weed pressure.

“Weed control today is not what it used to be,” explained Jeff Stachler, assistant professor and Extension weed specialist at North Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota. “We have too many species resistant to a bunch of different herbicides, not just glyphosate. We also have weeds with multiple resistance. We want to make sure people understand the frequency of herbicide-resi
