Free herbicide-resistant weed screening

Do you have weeds in your fields growing strong even after a herbicide application? These weeds might be herbicide-resistant, meaning they have the genetic capability of surviving herbicides. Even one weed plant in a field can be problematic: resistant weeds such as palmer amaranth and pigweed can produce hundreds of thousands of seeds in a growing season -- seeds that will be resistant to herbicides next year!

If you suspect you have herbicide resistant weeds in your field, contact Xandra or Zach and we can collect and ship your seeds in to be tested.

E-mail xandra.morris@ag.tamu.edu or call 254-582-4022 for more information.
