Clemson researchers arm farmers with new tools in fight against costly weeds

Weeds cause $32 billion in crop losses each year by battling crops for nutrients from the soil, according to Matt Cutulle, assistant professor of vegetable weed science at Clemson’s Coastal Research and Education Center. Effective weed control starts when growers are mindful of the weed-free period, which is a critical point during the growing season when weeds cause the largest yield loss, he said.
