“Vielfalt ist Zukunft” in Germany
The most serious herbicide-resistant weeds affecting arable farming in Germany are black grass (Ackerfuchsschwanz) and silky bent (gemeiner Windhalm). CropScience in Germany has responded to this threat by promoting the message that “Diversity Is The Future” (Vielfalt ist Zukunft) amongst the farming community. In addition, an extensive Integrated Weed Management package has been developed with educational videos, best practice promotional activities, a weed identification app, a weed resistance platform, web TV programs, and of course an Integrated Weed Management website.
