How does Alion fit into a resistance management plan?
The unique active ingredient available in Alion herbicide presents an excellent weed control option for a variety of reasons. There are currently no documented cases of resistance to CBI chemistries in the United States.
In the same way fruit and tree nut producers are familiar with managing disease and insect pressure, good weed stewardship practices enable growers to prevent, manage or delay the spread of weed resistance and protect useful technologies. Respect the Rotation™ is an initiative to elevate the importance of herbicide mode of action (MOA) rotation, which is essential to improve weed resistance management. Rotate modes of action and use multiple MOAs to reduce the selection pressure caused by overusing a single MOA.
