A field of dicamba-injured soybeans is used as an example to demonstrate the forensic analysis method to determine when dicamba exposure occurred.
Dicamba injury in soybean
Growers, crop consultants, and other stakeholders are invited to take an online survey on new soybean production and weed management systems.
The results of a 2015 survey on Nebraska's top weed challenges and how growers and agribusiness were responding was recently published in the journal Weed Technology.
There are now five structurally different growth regulator herbicides, each of which affects plant growth differently. Understanding the differences can help you better identify the cause when you find damage in your field.
Learn how to examine plant development and use this forensic strategy to determine the approximate calendar date when the plants in your field were likely exposed to dicamba.
