CWMA Webinar: Understanding Residual Herbicides to Develop Successful Bareground and Selective Rights of Way Programs
Register today for our Live Webinar: Understanding Residual Herbicides to Develop Successful Bareground and Selective Rights of Way Programs
Approved for 1 CEC in category 109 Industrial and Right of Way
An overview of residual herbicides will be given with a focus on modes of action. Emphasis will be given on selecting the proper herbicides for bareground versus selective rights of way programs. Lastly, resistance management for industrial herbicide programs will be discussed.
-Participants will know what the term mode of action means in relation to herbicides and how to find an herbicide’s mode of action.
-Participants will understand the difference between residtual and contact herbicides.
-Participants will know how to select the proper herbicides for an industrial ROW program.
-Participants will be able to identify factors that increase the likelihood of developing herbicide resistance and how to mitigate resistance in industrial ROW programs.
