Evaluating Herbicide Carryover on Cover Crops

To get a sense of which herbicides can be used before a specific cover crop species and which can’t, Purdue University weed scientist Bryan Young compiled research from the University of Wisconsin, Purdue University, University of Missouri and Penn State University, as well as commercial research conducted by retired University of Illinois Extension agronomist Mike Plumer.

No-Tillers Push Beyond Barriers at National No-Tillage Conference

Reasons to spread out fertility, how to resolve compaction with cover crops and ways to fight herbicide resistance were among the many lessons no-tillers took away from the 24th conference.
MORE THAN 1,000 no-tillers from seven countries gathered in the Crossroads of America this January to learn from some of the most experienced no-tillers and respected experts at the 2016 National No-Tillage Conference.

Eliminate Resistant Weeds by Overlapping Residual Herbicides

Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and marestail are the three most problematic weed species confronting corn and soybean growers, says Purdue University weed scientist Bryan Young. With the challenge of herbicide resistance, Young shares how overlapping residual herbicides can help effectively keep these problem weeds under control.

Tankmixes: The Future Of Weed Control Is Here

No-tillers can protect herbicide effectiveness and control weeds by using diverse modes of action and the correct adjuvants.
As no-tillers learn to reduce their exclusive dependence on glyphosate for weed control, their operation’s future profitability may depend on their ability to tankmix herbicides with diverse modes of action.

Surviving The Weed Crisis: Life Beyond Glyphosate

For no-tillers to preserve their way of farming, they’ll need more diverse weed-control programs that include the use of residual herbicides.
With hundreds of no-tillers looking on, Bryan Young showed no-tillers last winter some PowerPoint slides that spelled out a troubling end game: In state after state, glyphosate-resistant weeds have been winning the battle for crop acres.

Take Out Those Weeds Early

Stealing moisture, nutrients, space and light, grasses and broadleaf weeds can end up being huge yield robbers in your no-tilled crops.
If you'd like to boost your no-till corn yields by 15 to 20 bushels an acre, the best place to start this spring may be with early season weed control.

Spraying Late Is Costly

You’ll sometimes have less than a day to make a timely herbicide application — at a time when it may interfere with other essential no-till work.
When it comes to effective weed control, timing is always critical. But it is particularly important when you are using a total post program since dead weeds with late spraying can still trim your yields.

Watching Out for Herbicide Carryover in Your Early Seeded Cover Crops - Bryan Young - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

The increased application of herbicides with soil residual activity in corn and soybean production has complicated fall establishment of cover crops. Initially, the concern focused on the emergence and early vigor of cover crop stands, but has more recently been implicated by some individuals as contributing to a decrease in winter survival. As farmers explore methods for seeding cover crops even earlier in the fall or possibly inter-seeded with corn, the issue of herbicide carryover becomes an even more critical issue, says Bryan Young. The Purdue University weed scientist shares how we can make educated estimates of which herbicide and cover-crop combinations may be the most detrimental, but trial and error will prove to be the only reliable method of gaining local experience that directly relates to your farm operation.
