From a cotton farming standpoint, it may be more important now than ever to know your surroundings, said a pair of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service specialists at Lubbock. In the past, farmers used to plant brown bag seed and
Observing the preplant intervals for 2,4-D and dicamba prior to planting is important, and in Mississippi time is growing short.
In one of our Using Pesticides Wisely trainings, an elderly gentlemen with a deep voice and powerful persona put me on the spot and wanted to know an exact distance he needed between his peaches and the neighbors auxin sprays.
After many years in development, dicamba will likely be fully approved for use in tolerant cotton varieties for the 2017 growing season. There is great concern that dicamba drift can result in significant losses in nearby sensitive crops. This concern
Finding ways to halt the “resistance treadmill” was a key message from weed scientists on Tuesday at Pigposium III, a daylong event hosted by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture focused on herbicide resistant Palmer amaranth.
It has been several years since I’ve added anything to the Herbicide Ad Hall of Shame, but I feel DuPont’s sales sheet for Fexapan warrants inclusion. At a time when nearly everyone realizes we are painting ourselves into a corner
A farmer asked “there is so much talk about preventing off-target movement of 2,4-D and dicamba, and I get it, but how will the weed control be with an auxin system in the new technologies.” Dicamba and 2,4-D are certainly
In 2017, farmers will need to communicate with their neighboring producers of what they intend to plant to minimize the risks of drift damage from herbicide technologies.
This has been a confusing year in weed management and I’m hoping to help clear up some of the confusion about Engenia dicamba herbicide.
Applicators face complex and sometimes ambiguous buffer requirements for the newly labeled dicamba herbicides this year. The labels for Monsanto’s XtendiMax, BASF’s Engenia and DuPont Pioneer’s FeXapan put all the responsibility for following buffer requirements and avoiding off-target drift on
