Future of Weed Management?

  • 5
  • votes

While driving for work this week, I was listening to an episode about a new innovation to help manage herbicide resistance. A company called WeedOut is using pollen to sterilize weeds like Palmer Amaranth.

Give it a listen. I’d love to hear some opinions on the feasibility of this on a larger scale.

Innovative idea; what are they saying about scaling up this option for commercial farming?

They’re testing currently with both ground rigs and drones. The limitation is properly preserving the pollen. But, I think they expect to have a workable system for use within the next 18-24 months.
