The science behind herbicide-resistant weeds
Are some weeds better at evolving resistance than others?
What is the ag industry doing to manage resistance?
What do you foresee as new developments/challenges regarding herbicide-resistant weeds?
Ultimately, what has to happen to overcome the challenge of herbicide-resistant weeds?

The College of ACES is excited to host this series of chats – #askACES – on Twitter addressing some of the hot topics in social media today. Recently, we’ve discussed a variety of topics from childhood obesity with Dr. Barbara Fiese in June, gut health and the microbiome with Dr. Hannah Holscher in August, water quality with Dr. Laura Christianson, Dr. Paul Davidson and Jonathan Coppess in September, and the psychology of environmentally responsible behavior in late November with Dr. Carena van Riper . Our goal is to distribute sound science on social media and provide the public an opportunity to engage in a conversation and ask their questions about these topics. We would love to have you join us on Twitter for these chats and contribute to the conversation. Or, listen to the follow-up podcasts at
