Nearly 60 percent of farmers who responded to a recent national poll said they are changing their weed management plans to deal with growing glyphosate resistance. The poll, conducted by BASF Crop Protection, showed that a similar percent of farmers are adding a pre-emergent herbicide with residual control to battle stubborn weeds such as ragweed, marestail, lambsquarters and waterhemp.

"Lambsquarters are coming through higher rates of glyphosate, leaving weed pressure and competition in fields later in the season," said one grower in the national poll.


Although only 23 percent of respondents believe glyphosate resistance will impact their yield this growing season, the poll confirms that many farmers believe they need to take action now to overcome the threat of yield-robbing glyphosate resistant weeds in the future.
