Including on-site demonstrations of projects for control of
Glyphosate-Resistant Palmer amaranth in Soybean
- Palmer amaranth, a member of the pigweed (Amaranthaceae) family, is one of the most troublesome weeds in soybean fields.
- Greenhouse dose-response studies have confirmed glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth in Nebraska.
- Field experiments will demonstrate how to control resistant Palmer amaranth in field and seed corn production fields in Nebraska.
ON-SITE DEMONSTRATION OF PROJECTS
- How row spacing and herbicide programs can affect glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth control in Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Soybean
- Management of Palmer amaranth in
- Balance GT/Liberty Link Soybean (resistant to isoxaflutole and glufosinate)
- Enlist E3 Soybean (resistant to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate, and glufosinate)
- Critical period of Palmer amaranth removal affected by residual herbicides in Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Soybean
