Just this week we finished production on our Palmer amaranth identification video. We hope that this will be the first of a series of videos helping to identify and manage this herbicide-resistant weed in Michigan.
This new video from AgBioResearch highlights the importance of facilities, like the Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center in Frankenmuth for improving Michigan agriculture. Keep an eye out for some of your favorite weed scientists in the video.
As the field season is winding down we are moving back into the greenhouses. These Weed Wonder of the Week photos come from undergraduate student David Reif who is studying the host specificity and control of the parasitic weed dodder (Cuscuta spp.). He is having much better luck getting the dodder to attach to his sugarbeets and weeds this fall, likely because we have a new seed source. David will be presenting his research findings this December at the North Central Weed Science Society meeting in Milwaukee, WI.
