Farmers are discovering that weed management practices must be adjusted to control species previously susceptible to tillage as direct-seed wheat production practices become more widely adopted to conserve soil and water resources. Rattail fescue (Vulpia myuros) is an example, as this grass is becoming an increasingly common weed in wheat-based cropping systems across the Pacific Northwest (PNW). Rattail fescue has been a management problem in southern Australian pastures and wheat-based cropping systems since the mid-1980s, and more recently it has become particularly widespread in PNW wheat-cropping systems as minimum-tillage and direct-seeding practices have become commonplace throughout the region.
