Top Crop Manager has long focused on delivering third-party research results and insights to farmers across Canada – but there’s so much more than we can share within our print pages. In this episode of Inputs, we introduce a new series called the Graduate Research Showcase, featuring Amanda Fedorchuk, a master’s student at the University of Saskatchewan studying plant science.

Amanda joins Inputs host Dylan Sjolie to share methodologies and results from her thesis work aiming to boost weed control in faba bean using several integrated weed management techniques. As Amanda notes, combining residual herbicides with several cultural options increases the overall competitive ability of the crop against herbicide-resistant weeds, while extending the life of the herbicides.
