{{#customtitle:Integrated Pest Management-Herbicide Resistance Weed Plan|}}

Introduction & guidelines

Integrated Pest Management Herbicide Resistance Weed Conservation Plan is ecosystem-base, with an emphasis to modify herbicide use for suppressing weeds on cropland by utilizing four IPM strategies Prevention, Avoidance, Monitoring and Suppression that will be implemented with the augmentation of three key essential conservation practices Crop Rotations, Cover Crops, Residue Tillage Management, and IPM techniques especially Monitoring/Scouting, with the judicious use of herbicides.

  • To change herbicide rotation (modes of action and herbicide) and intensify mechanical practices initially as well as some manual labor may be needed where farms are presently populated with herbicide resistance weeds;
  • To change herbicide rotation (modes of action and herbicide) and increase the use of conservation practices along with IPM techniques that prevent early term resistance

weeds on farms;

  • Minimize resistance weeds seed production by reducing the weed populations before the flowering stage or before maturity;
  • To manage the weeds seed bank with a healthy soil (cover crops) which improve soil biological activity and shorten the half-life of the weed seed bank at the same time

having a desirable habitat for seed predators (invertebrates, small rodents, birds) that consume weed seed.

  • Manages resistance weeds economically;
  • Addresses operator’s objectives;
  • Meets NRCS quality criteria for soil, water, air and plant quality;
  • Complies with federal, state, tribal, and local laws, regulation and permit requirements;
