Pest Resistance Management Webinar Series

Webinar Series Description:
Pest resistance (fungus, pathogen, insect, weeds) is a huge issue in agriculture. Companies spend millions on developing products to manage each of these pests, yet they continue to adapt to these new products over time. What can we learn about the pathways of resistance that can help us manage pests? This series is also meant as a review for the CCA resistance management specialty exam.

Path of Resistance - How Resistance Affects Pathogen and Fungi Management

Pathogens and fungi are common in crop production and there are products available to manage these. Some of these organisms learn to adapt over time to current management strategies. How do they do this? This webinar will look into how pathogens and fungi are adapting to resist current management strategies and what can be done about it. This webinar is also a review for the resistance management specialty exam.

Growing for Tomorrow - How Weed Resistance Management Can Lead to Sustainability

BASF Logo

American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by BASF.

Many factors play into the development of weed resistance, from using too few sites of action to overusing the same product. However, multiple strategies can be applied in the field by growers to preserve chemistries and prevent weed resistance. By following product labels, making timely herbicide applications and using the right sprayer technology, growers are able to effectively manage weed resistance risks in the field.
