Managing Herbicide Resistant Weeds in Pulses with Alternative Modes of Action
Herbicide-resistant weeds are problematic with over 1/3 land that is annually cropped in the prairie provinces, yet the introduction and commercialization rates for new herbicides has slowed dramatically in the last two decades.
This project addresses three research gaps:
- The need for additional field studies to generate data to support registration of flumioxazin, fluthiacetmethyl, pyrosasulfone and propyzamide in pulse crops
- Development of sequential pre-, post-application application strategies for controlling cleavers in field pea in high organic soils of the black soil zone, and
- Evaluation of tank-mix partners with glyphosate for controlling glyphosate kochia prior to seeding pulses.
