Join the Fight Against Herbicide-Resistant Waterhemp: Participate in Our Statewide Survey
September 12 at 11:00 am - 11:45 am CDT
Please join Dr. Aaron Hager and Travis Wilke of the University of Illinois for a webinar discussing their upcoming statewide survey of waterhemp resistance to Group 15 herbicides. Waterhemp is a troublesome weed that has developed resistance to herbicides from multiple site-of-action groups across Illinois and other states. This survey aims to gather waterhemp seed samples from fields throughout Illinois to test sensitivity to Group 15 herbicides like S-metolachlor (Dual II Magnum and others) and acetochlor (Warrant and others).
In this webinar, Drs. Hager and Wilke will cover how to identify waterhemp and properly collect and submit seed samples from your fields. They will provide instructions on sample packaging and shipping, as well as discuss how the results will help researchers and producers better understand waterhemp resistance trends across the state. Time will be allotted at the end for a live Q&A session.
Please join to learn how you can participate in this important research survey and help combat the spread of herbicide-resistant waterhemp.
