Herbicide resistant wild radish: take back control

Herbicide resistant wild radish: take back control

Herbicide resistance in wild radish is developing fast!

Effective management to control wild radish populations is imperative to protect your productivity; prevent herbicide resistance and avoid its spread.

Key Messages

  • Implement an effectively timed 2-spray herbicide strategy
  • Wild radish size when treated greatly affects herbicide efficacy; always spray small plants
  • Using multiple mode-of-action chemical groups will delay onset of herbicide resistances
  • Prevent wild radish seed set. Deplete soil seed banks to wipe out herbicide resistant populations and impede the development of resistance
