The acreage with herbicide resistant weed populations has rapidly increased in Brazil in recent years. Inadequate herbicide recommendation is pointed as the main cause of this problem. This study aimed to evaluate Bidens subalternans control efficacy through herbicides with alternative mechanisms of action, consisting of a greenhouse and two field experiments, with corn and soybean crops. A Bidens subalternans population suspected to be resistant to ALS inhibitor herbicides, found in a commercial crop area, was used in the experiments. The results confirmed beggartick resistance to ALS inhibitor herbicides. Management alternatives found for this weed include herbicides recommended for soybean and corn with differentiated mechanism of action: protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PROTOX) inhibitors, mitotic disrupters and photosynthesis inhibitor herbicides, applied alone or in tank mixture.
