The Weed Lab at Colorado State University is a collaboration among four CSU faculty: Franck Dayan, Todd Gaines, Scott Nissen, and Phil Westra. Research focuses mainly on weedy species including management and herbicide resistance, and other projects include crop/herbicide relationships as well as soil/herbicide relationships. Our main goal is to support sustainable weed management in crops and natural areas. More About Us.
