More Resistant Plants!

More Resistant Plants!

A little over a year ago we suspected some Cheat, true Cheat to be ALS resistant in Northern Grant and Kay Counties. So we sent off some seed to OSU for testing in their green house.  Unforunatley they could not control it either and it came back ALS resistant cheat.  This means that Olympus, PowerFlex, Olympus Flex, and or Maverick will not stop it.  So far I have not seen it spread south......yet.

Last summer, we sent off some pig weed seed from Eastern Grant county, thinking it is probably Atrazine resistant. As you can see by the picture below it too came back resistant. 4 pounds of atrazine per acre would not stop it.

It is not always a chemical failure, sometimes Mother Nature trumps all.
