Start date
2016
End date
2021
Objective
1. Determine potential of new herbicides for use in vegetable crops and optimal timing and rates of application.2. Obtain field research data to support registration of new herbicides and expand registrations of labeled herbicides for use in perennial bush and tree fruit crops.3. Confirm and verify putative weed resistance to herbicides in horticultural crops.4. Develop herbicide use programs for perennial crops that include multiple modes of action and timings to improve quantity and quality of crop production and reduce potential for weed resistance.
