According to Peter Sikkema, a professor of field crop weed management at the University of Guelph’s Ridgetown campus, the presence of glyphosate-resistant weeds is increasing every year. Since Canada fleabane has wind-dispersed seeds which can produce upwards of 200,000 seeds per plant, it is no wonder resistant biotypes are have spread so quickly across Ontario.

Seeding crops into clean fields will help get them off to the best possible start but there are a number of things to keep in mind that will increase the effectiveness of any burndown.
