Herbicide Resistance Risk Calculator: A New Resistance Management Tool
October 29, 2020
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.
How to Control Palmer Amaranth in Dry Beans in Nebraska
September 10, 2020
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.
Palmer Amaranth and Velvetleaf Control in Conventional Soybean Using Overlapping Residual Herbicide Programs
April 30, 2020
With the depressed corn and soybean prices in recent years in the United States, growers have shown interest in conventional soybean. Herbicide programs should be selected carefully that provide season-long weed control.
Burndown and Pre-emergence Herbicides for Weed Control in Corn and Soybean
April 2, 2020
Profitable crop production starts with a weed control program that includes pre-plant and/or pre-emergence herbicides to deliver long-lasting, residual weed control. A spring burndown program in corn and soybean provides effective weed control to prepare for planting and helps to decrease the seedbank during the season.
