The Economics of Glyphosate Resistance Management in Corn and Soybean Production

by Michael Livingston, Jorge Fernandez-Cornejo, Jesse Unger, Craig Osteen, David Schimmelpfennig, Timothy Park, and Dayton Lambert

Economic Research Report No. (ERR-184) 52 pp, April 2015

cover image Widespread use of glyphosate (a highly effective herbicide) for corn and soybean has led to glyphosate resistance, and recent surveys suggest that acreage with glyphosate-resistant weeds is expanding. This report explores a number of issues related to the decline of glyphosate's effectiveness and choices for managing resistance to it.
