The Nebraska Crop Production Budgets have been revised and updated for 2019 with 78 budgets covering different management systems for 15 crops. The largest cost increases from 2018 were for nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers.
Managing weeds at least two weeks prior to planting winter wheat and then controlling winter annuals this fall are important to reducing disease, saving soil moisture, and achieving top yields next summer.
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.
Consider using split herbicide treatments to provide extended control of weeds after winter wheat harvest. Timely weed control can limit soil moisture loss to weeds, prevent the deposit of more weed seeds in the soil, and reduce the spread of wheat streak mosaic disease.
