Herbicide resistance is becoming more of a problem for producers.
As a result, more and more producers are looking at herbicide layering.
Regional Crop Specialist Cory Jacobs says herbicide layering means using two or three herbicides together in a tank mix or in sequence to tackle hard to control weeds.
"Really it's not a silver bullet solution, but it's another tool growers can use with other options and integrated weed management to manage herbicide weeds, then to delay the onset of herbicide resistance as much as possible," Jacobs said.
He notes it’s important that farmers take the time to read the product labels so they are using the right compatible products, for the right job and on the right crop.
Recent surveys show that wild oats continue to be the most common herbicide resistant weed in Saskatchewan.
