1) Determine the impact of crop diversity and crop life cycle on management of glyphosate-resistant (GR) kochia in western Canadian crop production by comparing two-year and four-year crop rotations, 2) Assess integrated cultural methods used to increase the competitive ability of diverse crop rotations based on management of GR kochia in western Canada, and 3) Measure the seed production potential of GR kochia before and after a range of simulated harvest dates with and without application of PRE- or POST-harvest herbicide.
