The Resistant Wild Oat Action Committee needs to hear from farmers

The Resistant Wild Oat Action Committee (RWOAC) is working to increase awareness of wild oat herbicide resistance. Approximately 69% of wild oats across the Praries display herbicide resistance (62% to group 1, 27% to groups 1 & 2, and 34% to group 2). Herbicide options for farmers are narrowing and a quarter of wild oats in wheat crops can not be controlled by herbicide.
 
The RWOAC is wanting to hear about the impact of wild oats on your farm. Your experience will guide the committee and help them to decide which projects to undertake on behalf of Prairie farmers. Please take a few minutes to fill out this short survey:
