If considering post-emergence herbicide as an option for weed control in storm-damaged soybean, it's important to check the maximum amount of active ingredient that can be applied to avoid crop injury.
Results of a 2020-21 study investigating the impact of uncontrolled Palmer amaranth in dry beans. Using pinto beans, researchers were able to pinpoint yield loss and potential seed production of Palmer amaranth.
With increasing pressure from herbicide-resistant weeds such as kochia and introduced herbicide-resistant weeds such as Palmer amaranth and waterhemp, it is important to reduce spreading of weed seed. Doing a limited cleaning between fields and choosing which fields to harvest first can be an important factor in this endeavor.
The field day included demonstrations on best practices to reduce herbicide drift, study results on new herbicides to control Palmer amaranth in corn, and discussion on several other research projects.
