Management of Herbicide Resistant Weeds

This research program seeks management alternatives for herbicide resistant weeds in S.C.  This research is currently being conducted on a variety of agronomic rowcrops including corn, cotton, peanuts, soybeans, and wheat.  Herbicide resistant weeds represent an inherent negative cost to S.C. agricultural production.  The program seeks to solve these production issues through practical, applied research on resistance alternatives.  This is being conducted by Dr. Mike Marshall.
