Herbicide resistance is a rising economic problem in US agriculture. Increasingly, growers, crop consultants, and other agricultural professionals are turning to integrated weed management (IWM) — the practice of using multiple weed control tactics — to manage herbicide-resistant weeds on their farms. Combatting weeds with a combination of cultural, mechanical, and chemical strategies can create more sustainable and resilient weed control programs.
How GROW Can Help You
GROW (Getting Rid Of Weeds) is your trusted source on IWM tactics. Here you will find up-to-date, tested, and vetted resources on weed control tools such as cover crops, increased crop competition, harvest weed seed control and more.
GROW (Getting Rid of Weeds) is a scientist-led network coordinating research to help farmers across the U.S. fight herbicide resistance, by using a greater diversity of weed control strategies to complement chemical use.

WHY “GROW” IS OUR NEW NAME
One of the changes made to the Integrated Weed Management Resource Center website is the adoption of the name GROW for our collaborative, which represents our goals:
- Getting Rid Of Weeds (GROW) through integrated weed management (IWM);
- Increasing adoption of IWM practices;
- Providing growers with reliable information to help eliminate weeds and slow the development of herbicide resistance;
- Increasing yields as we get rid of weeds.
The logo is green to symbolize that, while IWM includes chemical use, we are also proposing non-chemical (greener) strategies. Furthermore, the monocot and dicot leaves represent the fact that we will cover all weeds.
This website will still act as a reliable resource center on integrated weed management practices and a place to read up-to-date articles on advances in IWM and become part of the discussion about herbicide resistance.
