Experts from universities, industry and Bayer CropScience attended the first Pan American Weed Conference to share concepts and innovative herbicide technologies from Jan. 19-21 in Miami. The Pan American Weed Resistance Conference brought together some 200 scientists, universities and research institutions and practitioners from North and South America to exchange experiences in dealing with weed resistance and the propagation of practical and sustainable solutions.

Innovative solutions were presented at this unique international conference that offered farmers effective and sustainable ways of controlling weeds in many major crops. Solutions include new crop protection technologies that are designed to combat growing resistance to products such as glyphosate and the danger of herbicide-resistant weed biotypes spreading. The most important crops affected in the Americas — from Canada to Chile — are cotton, wheat, soybeans and corn.
