What is Operation Weed Eradication?

Weed resistance continues to impact row crop agriculture and increase costs. When it comes to problem pigweed like Palmer amaranth and water hemp, even one weed left standing in your farm is one too many. Operation Weed Eradication aims to drive mindshift toward pigweed eradication goal incorporating holistic practices for longevity and sustainability of your farming operation.

 

One pigweed is one too many

Herbicide-resistant pigweed, specifically Palmer amaranth and waterhemp, are a major economic issue for U.S. farmers. These weed species can grow rapidly, producing large amounts of seeds, allowing them to compete with row crops for nutrients, moisture, and sunlight. This gives them the potential to cause yield loss and devalue farms — ultimately threatening the legacy of an operation.
