A Weed Management Plant (WMP) is a strategy to control weeds based on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, which can include economic weed thresholds, weed identification and populations, mapping, biological controls, crop rotation, tillage, in-crop cultivation, cover crops, herbicide applications, timing of those applications (fall, spring, PRE, POST), and location of the field to be treated in regard to neighboring fields, homes, schools, etc.

With a WMP in hand, farmers can be mindful of budgetary constraints and be proactive in their approach to controlling weeds. Learn what should be included in a Weed Management Plan and how to develop one for your operation in this issue of SeedSCOOP.
