New knowledge and tools enable highly efficient just-in-time nutrient planning.
Farmers need to plan ahead and communicate to avoid damaging crops, especially when using dicamba herbicides. Before spraying know the area, communicate with neighbors and take advantage of online resources to ensure you’re taking appropriate precautions for downwind sensitive areas.
Farmers faced with a fungicide, herbicide or insecticide application have more than one option – particularly as more and more generic inputs enter the market. They typically cost less than their name brand counterparts. But are they really a better deal?
Farmers from 10 states are eligible to join a potential class action against Monsanto from dicamba drift damage. States include Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
DuPont Crop Protection received federal approval for FeXapan herbicide plus VaporGrip technology for use in Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans and cotton. DuPont licensed this dicamba herbicide from Monsanto last summer.
Weigh the pros and cons of at-home treatment before making the investment.
Differentiate fact and fiction as you plan your weed control strategy.
The squeeze of a tight farm economy is all too familiar for many farmers. More than half of farm households lost money the past two years, and USDA Economic Research Services (ERS) estimates that number is only going to get bigger.
Illegal use of dicamba was a devil in 2016 and begs the question: With EPA’s labeling approvals on new dicamba formulations, how might the off-target scenario play out in 2017?
You or your neighbors could be unknowingly planting Palmer amaranth anywhere Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) mixes are grown or pollinator mixes are established. Palmer amaranth seed in CRP planting mixes have been identified in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Ohio. It could be in CRP mixes in other states, too, just not identified yet.
Whether you’re buying your first bag of seed or finishing up 2017’s order, hasty decisions can result in less than desirable yields.
Farmers find another tool under pressure from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with pyrethroids’ draft environmental risk assessment and associated comment period ending March 31. The outcome of this review could leave farmers with one less tool in the insecticide toolbox.
Giant ragweed, a prolific and efficient weed, robs soybeans each year of precious sunlight, nutrients and water, slashing yield. The trick to beating this thief could be easier than one might think—destroy the weed’s seed bank.
