On the way to becoming Arkansas’ Number One grass weed, barnyardgrass has tormented farmers while picking up resistance to a wide range of herbicides. And without agronomic changes the weed is likely to ratchet up the pressure on Mid-South crops.

Propanil resistance in Arkansas barnyardgrass was documented in the early 1990s. Shortly thereafter, Facet (Quinclorac) came in under a Section 18 and was widely adopted. By the late 1990s, weed scientists began to find Quinclorac resistance.
