NY Herbicide Resistance Survey

With the recent documentation of evolved herbicide resistance in New York, including Palmer amaranth (glyphosate, ALS-inhibitors), waterhemp (glyphosate, ALS-inhibitors), horseweed (glyphosate, ALS-inhibitors, paraquat), lambsquarters (bentazon), Cornell wants to better understand the current "state of the state" with respect to herbicide performance and failure. Specifically, we are surveying growers/land managers/crop consultants/extension specialists/industry personnel, across cropped (e.g. agronomic, vegetable, fruit), ornamental/horticultural (e.g. Christmas tree farms, golf courses), and non-cropped (e.g. industrial, roadsides) systems in NY to describe the distribution of herbicide resistance in the state. This survey is VERY SHORT and should be QUICK to answer. It is also COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS. Your responses will help Cornell weed scientists plan future research and extension projects.
