8 Points to Success With Postemergence Herbicide Applications
June 19, 2019
Many crop fields did not get the early-season residual herbicides they usually would, placing a heavier reliance on post-emergence programs this year. Following these eight guidelines can help assure safe, effective POST applications that minimize the potential for off-site contamination.
How Clean is Your Sprayer? Study Participants Needed
May 10, 2019
University researchers are seeking 30 Nebraska spray applicators for a sprayer cleanout study. The study will help extension application educators learn about applicator practices and how to direct their educational efforts.
Research Report: Prevalence and Mechanism of Atrazine Resistance in Waterhemp from Nebraska
October 26, 2018
Researchers studied waterhemp populations in eastern Nebraska to evaluate the efficacy of PRE and POST herbicide applications and the mechanism of atrazine resistance. Here's what they found and take-home messages to apply to your operation.
Competitiveness of Herbicide-Resistant Waterhemp with Soybean
September 26, 2018
The objective of this study was to evaluate the competitiveness of three herbicide-resistant Nebraska waterhemp populations with soybean in a greenhouse environment. The results indicate the importance of enhancing early-season crop competitiveness.
Managing Pesticide Applications for Me and the Environment
January 8, 2018
An article from the Proceedings of the 2018 Nebraska Extension Crop Production Clinics on managing pesticide applications to reduce drift and other forms of off-target movement.
Precise Spray Droplet Sizes for Optimizing Herbicide Applications
April 10, 2018
Achieving the most effective and consistent spray droplet size helps provide for precision application of pesticides, which saves input costs and reduces off-target movement. University researchers using a pulse-width modulation sprayer studied the best droplet size for effective weed control with six herbicides used in Nebraska crop production.
When Weather Delays Planting – Now What?
May 26, 2017
Agronomists consider several options for those pushed into late planting due to heavy rains. Changing corn hybrids or soybean varieties is not recommended, nor is shifting to alternate crops.
