Tennessee: Resistant Italian Ryegrass – Identification, Control Options – Video

Larry Steckel, University of Tennessee Extension Weed Specialist, discusses glyphosate-resistant Italian ryegrass, how to identify the weed, and available control options. There are currently no post-emergence herbicide options available for corn, but there are still options available for cotton and soybeans. However, relying on post-emergence control applications is not a sustainable option as the weed is already difficult to control with herbicides and will become more-so if it develops further resistance.
