Crop protection fundamentals (Northeast Indiana)

With the expansion of weed resistance across our area, it is important to follow three basic principles of weed control. In today’s report I’ll discuss more about these weed control basics and how they apply to no-till soybean programs.

Still time to make applications to wheat (Southwest Indiana)

The past two weeks have brought good sunshine and warmer temperatures to our area, but the conditions have also allowed annual weeds emerge. If you haven’t been able to get into fields to make spring applications, don’t be dismayed because there is still time to do so. I’ll discuss spring weed control options for wheat fields in today’s report.

Spring field reports begin this week

It’s spring and growers are either already in fields, or soon will be, preparing soil for healthy crops, and planting seeds for a plentiful harvest.

Agronomists throughout the Midwest will post spring field reports beginning this week. Find out about spring applications, weed pressure, pest control, weather concerns and more from agronomists in the field.

This year, we’ve added reports from North Dakota, and will continue to share field stories from Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Control chickweed, henbit with fall applications

Many Western Indiana growers have completed harvest and are ready to make a fall herbicide application. Growers who used a fall application last fall had cleaner, drier fields this year compared to others. Troublesome dandelion, henbit and chickweed are quick to overtake fields and should be controlled now for better planting in 2014. I’ll share product recommendations in today’s field report.

Make fall applications before ground freeze

It’s cooling down in my territory, but so far, growers don’t have to worry about freezing ground and can continue to plant wheat acres. Growers should also apply fall burndowns to control marestail, giant ragweed and waterhemp. In today’s report, I’ll discuss product options for fall applications.
