Exploring the connections between 80 years of changing soybean genetics and recent agronomic practices for shaping herbicide resistance management.
Many changes in soybean production have occurred over the last 80+ years, and those changes are driven by both genetic improvements and other agronomic practices. Over that time span, weed control practices have played a major role in shaping agronomic recommendations. A thorough understanding of these relationships is important for continuing to develop sound agronomic systems and weed management plans that are sustainable by returning economic profits and combatting herbicide resistance, and several recent research experiments relating to these relationships have returned valuable results which will be shared.
