Hugh is a weed scientist at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Centre in Saskatoon since 1996, and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science, University of Alberta in Edmonton. He obtained his B.S.A. and M.Sc. degrees from the University of Saskatchewan, and Ph.D. in 1992 from the University of Manitoba. His research program deals with monitoring, risk assessment, and management of herbicide-resistant weeds as well as impact assessment of crops with novel traits.
This session will highlight the present and future herbicide resistance issues both globally and from a western Canadian perspective. The prevalence of the most economically important herbicide-resistant weed populations across the prairies and best management practices will be described.
