Weed Science

The Weed Science program focuses on developing integrated weed management strategies in irrigated cropping systems that include sugar beets, small grains and field corn. This program also serves as an area weed science resource to extension educators, crop advisors, crop consultants, farmers and the general public.

The primary goals of this program are to identify and conduct research and extension programs that will increase stakeholder knowledge and encourage the adoption of improved weed management practices that will maintain profitability and environmental safety.

Sugar Beets

  • Comparing sugar beet productivity, disease, insect and weed incidence and management in sugar beets growing under conventional tillage, strip tillage and no tillage.
  • Effects of irrigation amounts on weed populations in conventional and strip tillage sugar beets.
  • Effect of irrigation incorporation timing on the effectiveness of soil-active herbicides applied with glyphosate for weed control in sugar beets.
  • Tank mixtures with glyphosate using other herbicides, fungicides insecticides and various adjuvants for weed control in sugar beets.

Small Grains

  • Wild oat and broadleaf weed control and crop safety with herbicides used in spring wheat.

Corn

  • Comparison of several herbicides use with and without glyphosate for weed control in field corn.

Dry Beans

  • Weed control and dry bean crop tolerance to several registered and non-registered herbicides applied pre-plant incorporated and pre-emergence.
  • Comparing protein meals for weed control in dry beans using blood, feather, poultry, fish meals and mustard seed meal.

Chicory

  • Evaluating registered and non-registered herbicides for weed control in chicory.
  • Studies to better understand the biology and management of volunteer chicory in small grain.

Horticulture

  • Weed control and dry bean crop tolerance to several registered and non-registered herbicides applied pre-plant incorporated and pre-emergence.
  • Comparing protein meals for weed control in dry beans using blood, feather, poultry, fish meals and mustard seed meal.
