Wet weather this year made timely herbicide applications in winter wheat difficult, allowing substantial weed populations to get a foothold. The author discusses cultural and chemical options for weed management.
With freezing temperatures in the Panhandle May 1-2, wheat injury may have occurred. This guide addresses injury potential at various growth stages, factors contributing to injury, and why it's important to delay assessment for several days afterward.
Extension advises growers who are concerned about recent abnormally low temperatures to wait five days or so after the freeze to assess plant damage, as it takes several days of warm weather for injury to become apparent.
