Herbicides are a powerful weed control tool for farming operations around the world. A perceived over-reliance on herbicides for weed control has sparked much debate on how to best incorporate herbicides into sustainable weed management systems. To have an informed discussion on the future of herbicide use, it is important to understand current trends of how herbicides are being used. This presentation will explore several aspects of US herbicide use in several crops before and after the introduction of glyphosate-resistant crops.
