Preplant Tillage to Manage Glyphosate-resistant Common Ragweed

February 13, 2018
Nebraska university weed scientists conducted research in 2017 to identify the effect of preplant tillage on weed emergence in an effort to develop an integrated weed management plan to control glyphosate-resistant weeds. Here's what they found.
