For many years now, Fritz Breitenbach and I have conducted corn and soybean weed management trials at our Rochester field location. We have a healthy population of giant ragweed, common lambsquarters and common waterhemp to evaluate in these trials - the three most common weed concerns of southern Minnesota farmers.

In the past few weeks, several groups have come to view these plots again - yes, there is still something to see. The big interest, " How did those preemergence herbicides perform on giant ragweed and waterhemp?" Also, "What looks good, where are the weaknesses, are there new options and how did they perform, what other weed management options - non-chemical - do we need to consider, and finally how can we get the message across to folks?" Again, Seeing is Believing. Come and take a look.
