It's time to rethink how our industry has been dealing with weed pressure.
and how misguided policies related to declaring herbicides or classes of chemistry good or bad has contributed to that. A lot of those resistant weeds succumb to the "bad" herbicides that were demonized when the politically correct products came onto the market. Yes, I am talking about "quats", phenoxys, and triazines. In lawn care, I am extremely concerned about how most of the new herbicides that are not taboo are sulfonylureas.
