Why is weed control important and What are Integrated Weed Management Best Practices

Integrated Weed Management (IWM) is an way to manage weeds utilizing multiple control tactics. According to IntegratedWeedManagement.org, “Herbicide application is the main weed control strategy used. Reliance on this one method has led to the development of herbicide-resistant weeds. There are a limited number of herbicides available to use and cases of herbicide resistance are rapidly increasing in the US. As a result, herbicides are in need of extra help to continue to ensure adequate weed control.”
