A website from UGA Cooperative Extension

Just a few things I thought you might be interested in seeing from my research plots over the last few days (a la Dr. Bob K., the E-Mail King of Georgia): 

1) The most effective weed control program (in any crop) happens by starting clean, using a strong residual program that gets activated by rainfall/moisture, and making timely POST applications.

2) Lots of folks interested in using Anthem Flex (pyroxasulfone + carfentrazone) on their peanut crop.  Anthem Flex is a very good herbicide but it will cause more peanut injury than the other WSSA Group 15’s. Growers need not forget the other WSSA Group 15’s that work equally as well in the UGA recommended peanut weed control programs including Dual Magnum (s-metolachlor), Outlook (dimethenamid-P), Warrant (acetochlor), and Zidua (pyroxasulfone). 

3) Preliminary herbicide/fungicide/peanut response tank-mix research with Provysol looks promising.  I have observed similar results positive results with Cobra and Ultra Blazer.

4) Check out this soybean injury from 2,4-DB (2 oz/A) applied in combo with Reflex (24 oz/A) + Classic (0.5 oz/A).  The use of 2 oz/A of 2,4-DB in just about every POST herbicide application in soybean was very common in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s before all of the technology explosions.  Looks worse than I remember.  Good weed control though!
