7.2.19 Herbicide weed resistance has more than one cause. In addition to the chemistry of the product, there’s how it is marketed as well as the human impulse to continue using what’s working—until it doesn’t work anymore. That complexity is why weed scientists call resistance the wicked problem, hence the title of episode 132: The Wicked Problem of Herbicide Weed Resistance.  Scott Yates, director of communications and producer relations for the Washington Grain Commission, continues his conversation with WSU weed scientists Ian Burke and Drew Lyon, focusing more broadly on the issue of weed resistance, what farmers can do to combat it in the present and what they may be looking at in the future.
