Corn is the most common rotational crop planted the year before dry bean in western NE. However, herbicide programs must be chosen with foresight as many corn herbicides can injure dry beans the next season due to crop rotation restrictions.
In order to calculate an herbicide resistance risk score, four years of crops need to be entered. Once herbicides are chosen for all four years and a weed species is selected, the model will calculate an herbicide resistance risk score for each herbicide site of action that was selected.
Palmer amaranth emergence occurs throughout the season, generally from early May to late August. Consequently, weed control programs targeting Palmer amaranth need to provide season-long control, or from planting through canopy closure.
Pollen-mediated gene flow at a distance could allow the spread of rare herbicide-resistant alleles and favor the evolution of multiple herbicide-resistant biotypes through the accumulation of different resistant genes in an individual weed or weed population. From the Nebraska Crop Management Conference Proceedings.
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.
Researchers tested two herbicide strategies in soybean to see how preemergence herbicides would delay the critical time of weed removal, likely reducing the number of herbicide applications needed in a season.
