Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., Lubbock, reports that a Texas AgriLife Extension glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth weed management survey will be conducted for a second year.
“Glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth has caused costly impacts on cotton production in many areas of the Cotton Belt,” according to the PCG report. “The team at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is conducting a survey to determine weed management systems commonly used by growers, as well as the current extent of glyphosate resistance. They sent a survey about this time last year, but need to collect one more year of data to complete the study.”
The Extension team solicits farmer support in collecting data to help gauge the extent of glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth in West Texas. “Results from the survey will be used by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Weed Science Team to guide research efforts and provide better information to cotton producers.”
The PCG report notes that producers can complete the survey in three to give minutes. “Participation is voluntary; you may skip any question or quit the survey at any time. No personal information will be collected.”
