Start Date April 2017
End Date December 2020

The Challenge

Herbicide resistance is increasing in severity across the prairies, and with limited new herbicide products being released, new weed management techniques are necessary.

The Project

Investigate the Harrington Seed Destructor (HSD) efficacy across different cropping systems and management choices to potentially provide a new weed control method for farmers in Alberta.

The Results

This section will be updated upon completion of the project.

Grower Benefits

Aid in the identification of potential weed control options, in addition to herbicide application, for farmers to incorporate into their cropping systems.
