​Dotray begins by tracing the history of weed management in the Texas High Plains since resistance was first identified in August 2011. New technologies became available in 2016–2017 and were effective. Dotray outlines principles that produced success in 2018, which are essentially basics of weed management. He encourages growers to focus on on-target applications and “finish the job.” The EPA has not yet determined 2019 label changes.
