Ryegrass threatens Georgia wheat production as herbicide resistance has become very problematic. Aggressive resistant management programs must be implemented; ignoring this warning will ensure resistance that threatens long-term sustainability of grain production. Wild radish is the most problematic broadleaf weed infesting Georgia wheat. Wild radish seed pods often contaminate harvested grain, thereby reducing profits. Managing wild radish is not difficult if timely management decisions are implemented. This publication provides commercial wheat producers with herbicide options and critical thinking points on controlling ryegrass and wild radish.
