Presentations of research results were made to producers, consultants, and county agents through 19 meetings and field days. Research results in the areas of growth characteristics and shading ability of sugarcane cultivars, weed response to shading, weed management programs in sugarcane fields, and the value of harvest aids in soybean IPM programs were presented at professional meeting resulting in five abstracts. An electronic sugarcane newsletter was distributed several times during the year providing weed control recommendations and updates on herbicides and highlighting specific weed management programs and costs.

INTEGRATED WEED MANAGEMENT IN DRYLAND CROPPING SYSTEMS IN WASHINGTON - WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
Herbicides continue to be the most powerful, economically effective and reliable way to control weeds in wheat. Over the years, the efficacy of herbicides has started declining and there is possibility of development of cross resistance. An integrated approach, where herbicide plays a pivotal role is the only way ahead for effective weed management. Use of weed free seed, use of well rotten farm yard manure, method of sowing, seed rate, sowing time, varietal selection, amount of fertilizer application, proper herbicide selection, proper dose, time and method of herbicide application, herbicide rotation and mixture, use of adjuvant, mechanical weeding and crop rotation are the major constituents of integrated weed management. Thus, integrated weed management practices should be location and time specific by considering the weeds in a broader ecological and management context. Agricultural Reviews. Bhagat Singh, A.
The purpose of IWM is to include many methods in a growing season to allow producers the best chance to control troublesome weeds. Integrated Weed Management IWM means integrating multiple weed control tactics into a single weed management program, optimizing control of a particular weed problem. The past several decades have seen simplified weed control practices that rely heavily on a few popular herbicides.
