Grass and Broadleaf Weeds have Emerged (05/29/14)

Soil temperatures have increased dramatically in the past week. This means our planted crop seeds such as corn, soybean, wheat and sugarbeet will germinate and emerge much more quickly than when those same crop seeds were planted two or three weeks ago.

Spring Dicamba Application and Crop Planting Interval (05/29/14)

Dicamba labels allow use before, during, or after planting of grass crops including corn and wheat. Increasing prevalence of glyphosate-resistant kochia may cause growers to consider using sequential applications and residual soil activity of dicamba in their grass crop weed control strategies.

Delayed Wheat Planting: Fungicide Seed Treatments vs. High Plant Population (05/29/14)

In an effort to get crops in quickly, small grain growers may have thought about forgoing seed treatments and plant a higher population instead. I haven’t found any formal research comparing the two, but the situation provides an interesting discussion on risk taking.

New NDSU Publication: Air Temperature Inversions Causes, Characteristics And Potential Effects On Pesticide Spray Drift - AE1705 (05/22/14)

Pesticide spray drift always has been a costly and frustrating problem for applicators. It’s particularly frustrating because some of the seemingly best weather conditions for pesticide application are often the worst.

Factors that Impact Activation of Soil-Applied Herbicides (05/22/14)

My father taught me that one should never complain about rain and too much rainfall. I have bit my tongue long enough to come up with an advantage from the rain many of us in the Red River Valley received early Monday morning, good conditions for activation of soil-applied herbicides.

Zidua Labeled on Wheat (05/22/14)

Question: I have a client who is asking about the new Zidua herbicide registration on wheat. Are all wheat varieties tolerant to Zidua and has NDSU done any research on this?
