Weed management, tillage and agronomy experts met to discuss an initiative designed to protect weed control options for years to come. The initiative, called Respect the Rotation, is being facilitated by Bayer CropScience and is intended to spur grower adoption of the key elements of Integrated Weed Management (IWM), said Andy Hurst, product manager for Bayer, which served as host for two days of field tours and roundtable discussions.
"A key goal is to preserve the utility of glyphosate herbicide and promote proper stewardship of viable technologies, such as the LibertyLink trait and Ignite herbicide," Hurst said. "Respect the Rotation provides the opportunity for an open dialogue to help define how the industry can work comprehensively to support and act upon the messages the weed science community has championed for years."
