Tops Weeds To Watch In 2010

BASF reveals that the top weeds producers will be watching for in 2010 are common lambsquarters, marestail, ragweed and waterhemp. These are the primary weeds that concern people in the agriculture industry, reports a recent survey of more than 800 growers, retailers, distributors and university experts. The reason? These weeds are increasingly tolerant or resistant to glyphosate herbicides.

In the survey commissioned by BASF, marestail and common lambsquarters were the top weed threats for 45 percent of respondents. Close behind were common or giant ragweed (43 percent) and waterhemp (41 percent). Morningglory species (30 percent) and Palmer amaranth (26 percent) were also noted as weeds-to-watch. Palmer amaranth poses the greatest threat in the southern United States.

Midwestern states garnered 63 percent of survey responses, with 60 percent ranking waterhemp as the top weed to watch, followed closely by lambsquarters (57 percent) and ragweed (56 percent).

Of those surveyed, 52 percent say glyphosate resistance is a major concern for these tough-to-control weeds. Most noted experience with weeds showing more tolerance, or herbicide resistance, than in the past.

BASF is providing growers with an innovative chemistry in Kixor herbicide technology that is specifically designed to control the toughest broadleaf weeds. Kixor herbicide technology is the only pyrimidinedione chemistry on the market, providing broad-spectrum control of broadleaf weeds including ALS, triazine and glyphosate-resistant biotypes.

Kixor provides burndown and soil activity across a wide range of crops, including corn, soybeans and cotton, making it one of the most flexible and versatile herbicide technologies on the market. Kixor herbicides are not registered for use in peanuts at this time.
