On-line Weed Control Survey for Vegetable Crops - UNL CropWatch, Nov. 4, 2011

Nov. 4, 2011

Weed control can be a challenge in vegetable crop production, particularly where options are limited or when consumers demand that vegetables be produced under organic or “green” production systems. Technologies are under development that may help, and in some cases provide an opportunity to assess the need for chemical herbicides for weed control. We know that weed control will remain a priority for most vegetable growers.

American Vegetable Grower invites vegetable growers to complete a weed management survey on their current weed control practices and their views on the newest technologies emerging for weed control. The purpose of this survey is to help develop research priorities, and to identify critical issues associated with weed management in vegetable production.
