US - For the third consecutive year, Syngenta is recognizing the critical role that retailers, county extension agents and crop consultants play in the fight against weed resistance.

"We believe these individuals deserve to be recognized for their efforts," says Les Glasgow, Ph.D., manager of weed-management strategies for Syngenta. "These Resistance Fighters are on the front lines, challenging and helping growers proactively manage weed resistance, and serve a crucial role in this ever-growing challenge."

Resistance Fighter® of the Year nominations are being accepted now through Friday, Nov. 18, 2011, at Eligible nominees include retailers, consultants and county extension agents who have successfully implemented resistance-management practices with producers in their areas.
