This four year study, funded by Canadian Agricultural Partnership, had locations in Bow Island, Enchant, and Medicine Hat. We investigated precision agriculture tools and mitigation opportunities available for the fight against resistant kochia.
Every farmer should scout their fields for weeds. Scouting throughout the season gives you the advantage of knowing how your crop is handling the competition. Each growing season is different, but the more you learn about your field the better...
Kochia enjoys a dry, hot year. There is less competition from the crops. Due to the lack of precipitation this year, many crops have experienced inhibited growth which leaves more resources available to the pesky weed.
