Minnesota Corn, Soybeans: Early Season Weed Control – Podcast

Our guest this week is Dr. Jeff Gunsolus, University of Minnesota Extension Weed Specialist for corn and soybeans, Dr. Gunsolus joined us this week to discuss early season weed control management.

This spring many crop producers have contended with delayed planting and weed emergence due to cold temperatures in April and excessive rainfall in May followed by record setting temperatures in late May.

In response to these conditions, Dr. Gunsolus outlines best management practices for timely post-emergence weed control, using the knowledge of weed biology to your advantage, precautions for applying pre-emergence soybean herbicides over the top of emerged soybeans and the use of dicamba herbicides for successful weed control in traited soybeans.

In addition, we discuss specific strategies for giant ragweed, common labsquaters and common waterhemp.
