The Weed Lab at Colorado State University is a collaboration of four different CSU labs: the Dayan Lab, Gaines Lab, Nissen Lab, and Westra Lab. Research focuses mainly on weedy species and the source of their herbicide resistance, though other projects include crop/herbicide relationships as well as soil/herbicide relationships. Our main goal is the support of sustainable weed management in crops despite complex herbicide resistance mechanisms. More About Us.
