Is the use of herbicides one of your most powerful tools for the direct control of weeds? Such use must be economically viable. It should provide added value for you and have minimum impact on the environment. Sustainable use of herbicides should be obligatory for farmers, as well as in their own interest.

The occurrence of herbicide resistance in weeds is no longer a rarity and is effecting an increasing number of farms.

If you suspect herbicide resistance in your field, you should take a moment to perform a diagnosis by exclusion (see: in the chapter ”Field Observation”). If your suspicion is confirmed by the signs, you should check for resistance. The sooner you are aware of all of the facts, the more precisely you can take action against this. Often, one field is symptomatic of all comparable fields on a farm. An analysis confirms your decision. Only a resistance test can prove whether resistance is present and confirm mere suspicions.
