Waterhemp Management Challenge

Rodrigo Werle; Nick Arneson; Daniel H. Smith

According to our recent survey, waterhemp has become the most concerning weed species in Wisconsin row crop production. The University of Wisconsin Nutrient and Pest Management Program (NPM) and the WiscWeeds Program would like to invite farmers, agronomists, industry representatives, and educators to attend the 2019 “Waterhemp Management Challenge” Plot Tour on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at the Lancaster Agricultural Research Station (7396 State Rd 35 & 81, Lancaster, WI 53813). See flyer attached.

We will showcase studies comparing:

· 29 PRE-emergence soybean herbicides

· The value of no-till and cover crops for waterhemp suppression

· Systems approach for weed control in Xtend soybean

· Waterhemp management in corn through the use of residual herbicide, no-till, and cover crops

Registration starts at 8:30 AM with coffee and donuts provided by the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board.
