The objective of this study was to evaluate the competitiveness of three herbicide-resistant Nebraska waterhemp populations with soybean in a greenhouse environment. The results indicate the importance of enhancing early-season crop competitiveness.
Managing weeds at least two weeks prior to planting winter wheat and then controlling winter annuals this fall are important to reducing disease, saving soil moisture, and achieving top yields next summer.
Extra rain this summer has made many pastures greener than they've been in a long time, but unfortunately, some of that green is likely to be weeds. At this point in the season shredding and grazing may be more effective than applying a herbicide.
