Test your herbicide mode of action knowledge with this short quiz. The questions were written by a team of university extension weed scientists from 14 universities and the USDA Agricultural Research Service. This quiz is part of a national project on herbicide resistant weed management. All responses are kept anonymous, and the correct answers will be revealed after you hit "Submit."

* 3. How many modes of action are in the following herbicide program: Lexar EZ (groups 5 + 15 + 27) followed by Halex GT (groups 9 + 15 +27)?

* 4. If you apply Enlist Duo (glyphosate + 2,4-D) to a field of Enlist soybeans that contains glyphosate resistant waterhemp, how many modes of action do you have that are effective on the waterhemp?

* 5. Out of the following, which scenario is MOST likely to lead to the development of herbicide resistance in a weed?

* 6. What was the last decade in which a new herbicide mode of action for agronomic crops was introduced into the market?

* 7. How likely is it that a company will release a new herbicide mode of action in the next 10 years that effectively replaces Glyphosate?

* 8. Which of the following will have the LEAST risk for herbicide resistance evolution as a post-emergence option?

* 9. Since Liberty herbicide is mode of action Group 10, and Gramoxone is Group 22, Gramoxone is less likely to develop resistance since it has a high number - true or false?

* 10. Out of the following, which scenario is MOST likely to lead to the development of herbicide resistance in a weed?
