Research at the University of Alberta appears to reinforce the importance of post-harvest herbicide applications.

Scientists have also found that changing up timing and herbicide rotations, combined with proper crop rotations, can help manage weed resistance.

BASF helped fund the research and its technical development specialist, Bryce Geise, says waiting until spring to apply herbicides can give the weeds time to get too big and become much harder to control.

He also argues a post-harvest burndown allows growers to start with cleaner fields come spring, meaning less weed competition during seeding.
