About the Program

Take Action on Weeds is a farmer-focused educational platform designed to help farmers manage herbicide resistance. The goal is to encourage farmers to adopt weed management practices that lessen the impacts of herbicide-resistant weeds and preserve current and future herbicide technology. Established in 2013, Take Action on Weeds was the foundation of the Take Action program.

The four areas of focus for Take Action on Weeds include:

  • Weed biology
  • Cultural practices
  • Herbicides
  • Economics

Resource development for Take Action on Weeds is led by program advisors Kevin Bradley, University of Missouri; Bill Johnson, Purdue University; Christy Sprague, Michigan State University and many other contributing weed scientists.
