Withspring planting right around the corner, some are thinking about the ‘green bridge’ and how long to wait before planting. Researchers from Washington State University consider whether there’s a benefit to using paraquat instead of glyphosate for a quick burn-down.

Some plant pathologists maintain green bridge is not likely to be a disease concern with the traditional Midwestern corn-and-soybean rotation. But with the expanding growth of cover crops and adoption of other crop rotations, it’s a possible disease worry for Corn Belt no-tillers.
