This year’s Weed Tour may have been one for the record books. There were upwards of 300 participants! When I wasn’t driving tractor or visiting with participants I managed to grab just a few photos to share…please enjoy! Also, if you were at the tour and did not receive a tour book because we ran out, please let me know via email ( and we will try to get you a copy. All the same information will be available at the end of the season online¬†when we post our “Annual results“.

2015 Soybeans: Planting and PRE applications

Friday, May 8th, 2015

-E. Hill

This year we have been using every window of opportunity to get our major weed control studies planted. This is the first year we have gotten corn in during April, ever. We also had an early opportunity to get the bulk of our soybean studies planted this week. Many of our studies have treatements with preemergence herbicide applications (PREs) to try to provide residual weed control. With so many treatments we have been fortunate the past three seasons to have two people operating our Cub Cadet sprayers and finally this year we were able to get some photos of the simultaneous applications.
