Jointed Goatgrass is a winter annual weed similar in growth and characteristics to its relative: wheat. While herbicides are very effective in controlling jointed goatgrass, improper weed control techniques may encourage the development of herbicide-resistant forms. This publication defines herbicide resistance in general and explains the development of herbicide-resistant weeds, then describes specific plans and management techniques to prevent the development of herbicide-resistant jointed goatgrass in wheat fields.
