While continuing to address control of weeds with historic persistence, such as wild oat, foxtails, kochia, and wild buckwheat, investigations for managing new weed concerns, such as downy and Japanese bromes and Persian darnel, are increasing. Incorporation of soil-applied herbicides in North Dakota cereals could prevent $350 million in lost revenue annually.
Increasing spray droplet size to reduce drift has reduced weed control by 10 to 50% for some herbicides used in cereals. Research continues to evaluate the extent of impact as well as the cause of this effect and corrective measures.
