Herbicide resistance is a rising economic problem in American agriculture. Increasingly, growers, crop consultants, and other ag professionals are looking toward Integrated Weed Management to eradicate resistant weeds on their farms. IWM allows growers to use multiple tactics together in order to attack weeds from multiple angles.

The Integrated Weed Management (IWM) Resource Center is a place to find helpful, trustworthy resources on using integrated weed management for herbicide resistant weeds. This website is updated regularly by a team of weed scientists from 14 universities and the USDA Agricultural Research Service as part of an area-wide project.
