I am interested in characterizing and determining the influence of application parameters associated with the efficacy of glyphosate in glyphosate-resistant weed species. I am also intersted in the development and evaluation of herbicide programs for the control of glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth in multiple cropping systems.
