New Extension Publication: “Tips for collecting weed seeds: Ensure your resistance sample gets tested”

-E. Hill

In an effort to increase the quality of weed seed samples sent to MSU Diagnostic Services for herbicide resistance screening we have developed this brief, all-color publication”Tips for collecting weed seeds“. The most frequent weeds submitted include: horseweed/marestail, pigweeds/amaranths (Powell, Palmer, Redroot, Waterhemp), common ragweed, and common lambsquarters. Following the tips in this guide will give us the best chance of getting seedlings to germinate for the greenhouse bioassay.

Stay tuned for the results of this year’s herbicide resistance screening (with 47 samples submitted)!
