Field day to highlight herbicide resistance strategies in soybean

Tyler Harris Herbicide resistance weeds
MULTIPLE STRATEGIES: At the field day on June 29, growers will get a good look at multiple strategies to combat herbicide-resistant weeds, including chemistries and cultural practices.
Hands-on field day will take place June 29 at Northern Research Farm near Kanawha, Iowa. It will cover effective management of herbicide resistance.

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host a herbicide resistance management field day from 1 to 3 p.m. June 29 at Iowa State University's Northern Research Farm (south farm) located 1 mile south of Kanawha on R35, or 1040 James Ave.

This field day will promote effective management of herbicide resistance through known principles of using effective herbicide modes of action, effective rates and appropriate timing strategies.

"Farmers will get a good look at the use of multiple strategies to combat weeds — not just chemicals, but cultural practices as well," says Angie Rieck-Hinz, a field agronomist with ISU Extension and Outreach.

Effectively managing waterhemp is becoming a bigger challenge due to the development of multiple herbicide-resistant populations. In addition, the use of a cereal rye cover crop with different termination timings and narrow-row soybeans will be used to demonstrate weed suppression strategies.

Rieck-Hinz and Meaghan Anderson, also an Extension field agronomists with ISU Extension and Outreach, will lead participants through soybean herbicide plots to evaluate principles of managing herbicide-resistant weeds with both chemical and cultural control.

This field day is free and open to everyone. Certified crop advisers can receive 2.0 pest management continuing education units for attending.
