Recently Karen Renner has begun working with MSU’s soil biologist, Lisa Tieman, to explore how cover crops influence the microbiology of the soil and weed seeds. Last week we put tiny mesh bags of weed seeds into an incubation experiment hoping to gain some preliminary information. It is always exciting when different disciplines come together to try to understand a system. After one week of our bags being in the incubators we had some germination and growth of giant foxtail and velvetleaf. We removed the seedlings (pictured below), but it will be interesting to see if germination correlated to any of the factors that Lisa and her team are measuring…stay tuned.

Each year our program assesses weed control programs for non-GMO soybeans. At the conclusion of the season Dr. Christy Sprague publishes a newsletter comparing the economics of these programs to aid farmers in decision making for the coming season. The 2014 article can now be found on MSUweeds.com under Publications –> Commercial comparisons

Earlier this month MSU weed scientist, Christy Sprague, published and article for the Progressive Forage Grower titled, “Palmer amaranth: Managing this new weed problem.” This article details the characteristics and biology of this herbicide-resistant weed and discusses management considerations specific to alfalfa.
