Host: Dr. Ramon Leon
Refreshments at 2:45 pm
Seminar at 3:00 pm

The increase in herbicide resistance over the last decade has caused a series of changes

is reducing the pool of herbicides available for farmers and increasing the hurdles that
must be overcome to bring new weed control products to the market. The implications of
these changes will be discussed and how industry is adapting to them.
