Under Construction

Our website is currently undergoing a transition to reflect the amalgamation of the two commissions into the new Alberta Grains brand. Until then, you’ll still be able to toggle between the Wheat and Barley sides for industry news, research and relevant information to help grow your crops, your business, and your future.

Stay tuned for the official launch of the new website!

Scouting for herbicide resistance

Producers are currently managing herbicide decisions on their fields. With some areas having delayed weed emergence due to lack of rainfall, some decisions change rapidly to account for new conditions. When the dust settles, producers and agronomists will be scouting fields to assess herbicide efficacy. Inevitably, there will be weed escapes that need review. For tactics on how to assess whether these escapes could be due to herbicide resistance, see these scouting tips breakdown by Dr. Charles Geddes. This video will provide a framework to assess potential herbicide resistance.
