VIDEO: Herbicide resistance spreading in Western Canada

From the International Weed Resistance Summit

At the Herbicide Resistance Summit this past March, Dr. Hugh Beckie presented the results of the latest weed survey in Saskatchewan. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researchers hadn’t finished screening for herbicide resistance. But Beckie expects to see herbicide-resistant weeds on over 50 per cent of cultivated land in Saskatchewan, he told Grainews reporter Lisa Guenther.
