Join next week's Field Notes discussion on early season weed management

An all-new weekly crops program from the University of Minnesota Extension Crops Team!

Join us Wednesday, May 12th for Field Notes when we welcome Debalin Sarangi, University of Minnesota Extension Corn & Soybean Weed Specialist and Tom Peters, University of Minnesota Sugarbeet Weed Specialist to talk about weed control this year, and how the current spring weather and soil condition might influence our management decisions.

While the weather this year allowed for early planting, many questions and concerns have surfaced around effective weed management strategies when we have faced cool and dry soil conditions. These include the effectiveness of preemergence herbicides and the biology of weed emergence and subsequent growth. We will discuss these environmental conditions along with other crop emergence considerations on the next Field Notes program on Wednesday, May 12th at 7:30am.
