Water hemp has not yet formed resistance to dicamba, glufosinate

Researchers at the University of Missouri have stated that so far, water hemp has not developed resistance to dicamba and glufosinate.

Kevin Bradley, MU Extension Weed Scientist, said his team’s ongoing research is on more than 200 hiyumodoki in seven states in the Midwest and Southeast, including Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Louisiana, and Tennessee. He told Brownfield that he was screening the population.

“Fortunately, with just two years of data, I looked at it and saw big changes that really matter to me, such as higher survival in the second year compared to the first. I can’t, “says Bradley.

He said the study was actively investigating how water hemp was adapted to dicamba and glufosinate. Bradley said weeds are not yet resistant to herbicides, but warns that high levels of herbicide use can lead to the development of resistance by Amaranthus tubercens.

“Whenever there are millions of acres of land that rely on these post-germination herbicides to control one weed: Amaranthus tubercii, they are not so good in terms of resistance in our past It’s an era, “Bradley said.

United Soybean Board is funding MU research.
