Ammonium Thiosulfate (ATS) as an Ammonium Sulfate (AMS) Replacement (06/01/17)

Question: I received a call who was talking to a neighbor about an idea of substituting ammonium thiosulfate rather than using AMS with glyphosate. He normally uses 8.5 lbs. AMS per 100 gallons of water as a water conditioner. Presently he is considering inducting liquid AMS versus handling the dry product this year for their post work which is a fair amount of work currently with the dry bags.

Sugarbeet Root Maggot Update: Peak Fly Expected in Two Weeks (06/01/17)

Most overwintered sugarbeet root maggots (SBRM) are in either the larval or pupal stage in last-year’s sugarbeet fields, and nearly all are within the upper two inches from the soil surface. However, it will not be surprising to see an occasional fly in the next couple of days, with activity picking up significantly by the end of next week.

Leaf Galls Already Observed…(06/01/17)

A number of different pests – insects and mites – produce a variety of galls on tree leaves. We normally don’t observe galls until later in the summer – late June through August. This year, I’ve already observed the galls produced by the maple bladder gall mite.

Adjuvant Properties from Humic Acid (06/01/17)

Question: Humic acid is getting some 'play' in the countryside. I understand it is sourced locally, derived from North Dakota Leonardite shale. We heard from farmers that humic acid has been suggested as a herbicide adjuvant to increase the activity of and to improve the rainfastness of translocated herbicides. I understand the trade is suggesting humic acid at 1 pint per to the spray solution. Sometimes it is recommended alone, other times it is recommended with non-ionic surfactant.
