Industrial Hemp Tolerance to Flame Weeding
November 30, 2020
Hemp exhibited relatively good tolerance to heat from propane flaming. Temporary injury could be considered acceptable since it was only at the base of the plants and lasted only for about two weeks.
Industrial Hemp Tolerance to Late-POST Herbicides
November 18, 2020
Hemp exhibited high level of sensitivity to most of the tested herbicides. Visual injury levels ranged from almost no injury (~5%) with only one herbicide, to some temporary injury (~20%) with a few herbicides and severe injury or death (60%-93%) with about 10 out of 18 herbicides tested.
Industrial Hemp Tolerance to Early-POST Herbicides
November 11, 2020
Hemp exhibited relatively good tolerance to several products that can be used postemergence in industrial hemp. It is important to note that the conclusions are based only on one year of data. This study will be repeated in 2021 season.
Industrial Hemp Varieties Exhibit the Same Tolerance Level to PRE-Herbicides
October 7, 2020
Herbicides registered for in-season weed control in industrial hemp are scarce, or nonexistent. To help with this issue, a greenhouse study was conducted this summer at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to test tolerance of three industrial hemp varieties to preemergence herbicides commonly used in corn and soybean.
Industrial Hemp Tolerance to Soil-applied Herbicides
July 8, 2020
Nebraska legalized industrial hemp in 2019, which created much interest in researching various aspects of hemp production, including weed control. A recent study looked at hemp tolerance to 18 soil-applied herbicides commonly used for preemergence weed control in corn or soybean.
