From page 18...
... Now there may be many choices in the best management practices, and we all tend to make the most logical recommendations based on mixing ability of herbicides or the pounds of material that may be used or ones that have rotation restrictions, but best management practices are a large part of our business. Q: Are there recommendations you make that growers are particularly resistant to?
From page 19...
... There are other impediments to using best management practices for managing herbicide resistance in weeds. They include weather-induced delays that can result in untimely herbicide applications, monoculture crop rotations due to dominant economics for that particular crop, and the "ease" of using a single herbicide technology across multiple crops, rotations, and geographies.
From page 20...
... This will continue to be an impediment for implementing best management practices and can undermine university and governmental recommendations unless industry is an active participant in developing these practices. Prickly lettuce (Lactuca serriola)
