Season 1, BONUS: Management of Herbicide Resistance on Farm – Josh Lade and Haley Tetreault
A special episode produced in collaboration with SaskBarley and the Barley Bin podcast.
Herbicide resistance is a growing issue across the prairies. One of the largest concerns for herbicide resistance is wild oat. According to the Herbicide Resistant Wild Oat Action Committee Approximately 69% of wild oats across the Prairies display herbicide resistance; 62% to group 1, 27% to groups 1 & 2, and 34% to group 2.
In this episode we explore the management strategies employed to combat herbicide resistant wild oats on Josh Lade’s farm near Osler Saskatchewan. Josh grew up in Australia which gives him a unique perspective on herbicide resistance. His background has led him to help adapt and prepare their farm for management of current and development of new HR weeds. Josh came to Canada in 2010 on a farm exchange, and later moved to Canada and started farming with the Wiebe family in 2013. The farm has been dealing with herbicide resistant wild oats since 2013, and have developed an impressive management program including harvest weed seed control, patch targeted spraying, herbicide layering, and on farm trials.
