WSSA SW Resistance Workshop interest

 Survey Header Image

As part of a national effort on developing research and regulatory priorities related to the challenging problems of herbicide-resistant weeds, the Weed Science Society of America is sponsoring a series of half-day regional workshops to discuss the issues, potential solutions, and technical and economic barriers related to resistant weeds.

California, New Mexico, and Arizona are combining to hold a “Southwest US Herbicide Resistance Listening Session” on February 15, 2017 in Tulare, California during the World Ag Expo. The format of this workshop will be a facilitated half-day (morning) discussion session and will lead to a more formalized and defined understanding of herbicide resistance at both the regional and national level.

If you are interested in contributing to this conversation from your perspectives as: growers, commodity leaders, ag suppliers, pest control consultants, local/state/federal land managers, right-of-way managers, etc, please go to the web address below to provide your contact information and answers to a few simple categorization questions. 

In a few weeks, we’ll use this list to formally invite workshop attendees that balance among the view points, regions, and ag sectors representing the diversity of weed management viewpoints in the southwestern United States.

Thank you.
