Research Project: Trends Observed in Herbicide Evaluation

Location: Global Change and Photosynthesis Research

Project Number: 5012-12220-009-51-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 30, 2016
End Date: Sep 29, 2021

Objective:
To characterize changes in weed management efficacy over time.

Approach:
For decades, the University of Illinois Herbicide Evaluation Program has quantified the effectiveness of various weed management systems in corn and soybean field trials. These data will serve as platform for testing hypotheses related to weed management efficacy in production agriculture, including changes in weed management outcomes. Datasets will be compiled and an assessment of the database made in order to characterize the size, scope, and parameters available. The team will test various hypotheses related to herbicide efficacy, management strategy, problem weed species, and incidence of herbicide resistance.
