For the past two years, we have been participating in a multi-regional U.S. Soybean Board funded experiment that is investigating the effects of planting green on no-till soybean production and management of multiple-resistant waterhemp populations.
Localized populations of these species found on headlands or field margins likely represent a new introduction. Populations that are distributed throughout fields are likely a sign that these species have gone undetected for more than one year.
Atrazine contained in nanocapsules and applied to slender amaranth and hairy beggarticks outperformed commercially recommended rates for atrazine, even when heavily diluted, according to researchers in Brazil.
Preemergence herbicides can aid in the control of troublesome weeds such as waterhemp and giant ragweed. They can also result in lower weed densities and a more uniform weed height at the time of postemergence herbicide application, aid in the management of herbicide-resistant weeds, and ultimately help protect crop yield potential and profitability.
In addition to pigweed species, UPL's PREVIEW 2.1 herbicide provides effective control of horseweed (including resistant species), kochia, morning glory, nightshade, velvetleaf and purslane, among others.
