PSPP 546 Herbicide Physiology is a distance delivery graduate course to be offered in Fall semesters of even-numbered years. The course is taught by Profs. William Dyer and Tracy Sterling (Montana State University), Dr. Sarah Ward (Colorado State University), Dr. Dean Riechers (Universityof Illinois), and Dr. Erin Burns (Michigan State University) . We will cover topics in herbicide classification, herbicide mode of action, resistance mechanisms, and practical diagnosis of field situations. Prerequisites include upper division courses in biochemistry and plant physiology, or consent of the instructors. The course is designed for students without traditional access to this course material, and is not designed to replace existing, on-campus courses at other institutions.  Fall semesters typically start the first week of September.
