Summary: This presentation will help growers, consultants, dealers, and other practitioners in soybean-producing areas manage herbicide-resistant weeds in general and glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth in particular. Specifically, this presentation will cover some of the basic biology and physiology of Palmer amaranth and how that contributes to this plantís success as a weed. Basic herbicide resistance management strategies will be discussed, and specific management programs for Palmer amaranth will be presented. The information presented will help growers avoid resistance, or if glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth is already present, the information will help growers effectively manage the problem.
