Too much of a good thing might be a bad thing when it comes to controlling weeds, a Texas AgriLife Extension Service specialist said.

Prior to herbicide-resistant crops, producers used a variety of methods to control weeds, including herbicides, cultivation and hoeing crews, said Peter Dotray, Ph.D., an agronomist with AgriLife Extension and Texas AgriLife Research in Lubbock.

Dotray, speaking at the Texas High Plains Grain Elevator Workshop in Amarillo recently, told the crowd, "As we've changed the things we plant, we've changed the way we try to control weeds."
