Over the years, Italian Ryegrass could be found on roadsides, in ditches, and other benign places. Unfortunately, glyphosate-resistant biotypes of this weed are being found more and more in cotton fields.
In 2005, Jason Bond, Mississippi State University Research and Extension weed scientist, was the first to discover glyphosate-resistant Italian ryegrass and is one of the leading experts in helping growers manage it. Bond shares this valuable knowledge in the latest Focus on Cotton presentation, titled “Management of Glyphosate-Resistant Italian Ryegrass.”
This presentation summarizes the known distribution of the weed, as well as research addressing its management. By the end of this presentation, listeners should know more about the negative impact of ryegrass on cotton and have adequate information to minimize the negative effects of this troublesome weed on cotton farming operations.
