This course will address the array of plant and herbicide differences that affect weed control and discuss how we can hedge our bets as turf managers to increase efficient and effective control of weeds. A better understanding of both weed and herbicide characteristics will lead to best management practices for weed control. The discussion will include how herbicides have changed over time and how herbicide application choices are influenced by weed life cycles, their growth characteristics in different seasons, and their physical characteristics. These best management practices will improve herbicide choices, application timing, formulation choices, and other informed decisions toward an optimized weed control program.
