2015 Soybeans: Planting and PRE applications

Written by: Erin Hill

Primary Source: MSU Weed Blog

This year we have been using every window of opportunity to get our major weed control studies planted. This is the first year we have gotten corn in during April, ever. We also had an early opportunity to get the bulk of our soybean studies planted this week. Many of our studies have treatements with preemergence herbicide applications (PREs) to try to provide residual weed control. With so many treatments we have been fortunate the past three seasons to have two people operating our Cub Cadet sprayers and finally this year we were able to get some photos of the simultaneous applications.

I am interested in weed ecology as it pertains to agricultural production. I am also interested in field crop and vegetable production systems, the use of cover crops and other sustainable practices, herbicide resistance, and environmental preservation.
