New study evaluated different herbicide programs for Palmer amaranth control in post-harvest wheat stubble

A field study was recently conducted that evaluated the performance of various herbicide programs for Palmer amaranth control in post-harvest wheat stubble. Learn more about the results of this research in this article from Weed Scientist, Dr. Vipan Kumar.

In-season Palmer amaranth control in grain sorghum

With adequate moisture and high temperatures, Palmer amaranth populations are rapidly growing and causing concern for some sorghum producers in western Kansas. What options to growers have at this point in the growing season? Read more in the article from weed scientist Dr. Vipan Kumar.

Metabolism-based herbicide resistance in a 6-way resistant Palmer amaranth

A six-way herbicide-resistant Palmer amaranth population was the subject of a study recently published by K-State weed scientists. Results from this study demonstrate that a single resistance mechanism can provide resistance to multiple herbicide groups.

Considerations for weed control following wheat harvest

Post-harvest weed control in wheat stubble is very important to conserve soil moisture and prevent weeds from going to seed and adding to the weed seedbank. Weeds can grow quickly once the wheat canopy is removed.

Palmer amaranth control in grain sorghum

Pre-emergence herbicides are critical for successful weed management in grain sorghum, especially for difficult to control species like Palmer amaranth. When pre-emergence control efforts fail, learn the best options for Palmer amaranth in sorghum fields later in the growing season.

Palmer amaranth control in grain sorghum

Challenging weather conditions in the spring may have resulted in rapidly growing Palmer amaranth in grain sorghum fields. Post-emergence herbicide options in grain sorghum are limited, with the available choices most effective when the weeds are small. This article discusses the pros and cons of key herbicides that can provide control.

High temperatures reduce effectiveness of Group 27 herbicides

Applying certain herbicides when air temperatures are high could reduce their effectiveness on controlling Palmer amaranth. Research conducted at K-State described two key changes about how Palmer amaranth responds to applications of mesotrione (Callisto) under high temperatures.

Palmer amaranth control in grain sorghum

When the aggressive nature of Palmer amaranth is combined with the limited post-emergence herbicide options in grain sorghum, problems often arise even when an adequate pre-emergence herbicide program is used. This article covers post-emergence herbicide options for Palmer amaranth control in grain sorghum.
