Glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth or pigweed is fast becoming a major problem for row crop producers. Weed scientists have been urging growers to apply residual herbicides.

In recent months, Monsanto has been working with farmers to develop a new hooded sprayer that could help control in-season escapes. Steve Claussen, the inventor of the original hooded sprayer, talked about the new design in this video made at the Sunbelt Expo.
