Glyphosate-resistant Echinochloa colona L. (Link) is becoming common in non-irrigated cotton systems. Echinochloa colona is a small seeded species that is not wind-blown and has a relatively short seed bank life. These characteristics make it a potential candidate to attempt to eradicate resistant...

AbstractFull Text

Harvest weed seed control (HWSC) is a new approach which targets weed seed removal and/or destruction during the crop harvest operation. The success of HWSC is dependant upon weed seed retention at harvest. To identify and define the potential value of HWSC in northern farming systems, we conducted ...

AbstractFull Text

Planting forests onto marginal ex-agricultural land may provide a relatively cost-effective way of creating a carbon sink where more CO2 is being removed from the atmosphere than is being released (sequestration), while simultaneously improving soil organic carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) stocks...
