Glyphosate and Roundup Ready crops are popular because they provide consistent, broad-spectrum weed control with minimal risk of crop injury. On occasion, however, growers experience poor weed control with glyphosate, generally because of application- or weather-related factors. This publication examines the factors that affect glyphosate performance and offers management strategies to minimize fluctuations in its effectiveness.
