SYNGENTA RELEASES STRIKING NEW VIDEO ON WEED RESISTANCE CONTROL
Source: Syngenta news release

A stunning new video by Syngenta illustrates the growing threat of herbicide-resistant weeds on America's farm lands while offering hope to growers who proactively choose to "Be Part of the Solution" in the battle against so-called "super weeds."

From the South to the Midwest and to the Southwest, weeds, such as Palmer amaranth, horseweed and waterhemp, daily threaten America's agriculture industry, resulting in significant losses in corn, soybeans and other crops. Advancements in technology have been successful through the years in controlling weeds; however, with each new successive technology has come a tendency to rely exclusively on the latest tool, facilitating the evolution of new types of herbicide resistance.

"Be Part of the Solution" by Syngenta explains the obstacles that growers face in dealing with herbicide-resistant weeds and how they can overcome the weeds that threaten their livelihood and legacy. In fact, in-depth research shows that diversifying weed-management strategies can go a long way toward saving the land - and leaving it in great shape for generations to come.

"There is no doubt that growers face a formidable opponent in the fight against herbicide-resistant weeds, as this video vividly shows," said Les Glasgow, Ph.D., Syngenta herbicide technical asset lead. "But this video also shows growers can successfully fight herbicide resistance. These aptly-named Resistance Fighters, proactively use all the tools in the weed management arsenal, including herbicide diversity," he said.
