It takes keeping up with the latest research to stay ahead of changing weed populations. Weed resistance continues to spread. There are wild oats resistant to three or more groups and yellow foxtail herbicide-resistant weeds continue to gain ground. Management techniques have to meet the changing weed landscape.
Dr. Breanne Tidemann, research scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Lacombe, AB, is one of the leading weed scientists in the country. Dr. Tidemann shared her knowledge and advice on how to manage current weed challenges in a very thorough webinar.
Dr. Tidemann references the Wild Oat Action Committee. More information can be found here: www.weedscience.ca
