Evaluate presence of cleavers biotypes on the Prairies based on emergence phenology, whorl/branch number close to maturity, seed production, and TKW. Evaluate emergence timing of cleavers populations. Determine if any of the above characteristics are affected by maternal environment. Screen collected populations for quinclorac resistance.
