Description

A number of significant problems related to weed management developed during 1995. The most influential factor in many of these issues was the environment. However, with proper planning, adjustments could be implemented in the system to resolve many of these problems. Also, many of these problems have been building during previous years and conditions in 1995 emphasized their impact on crop production. Pigweed control was of concern during 1995. Herbicide injury from postemergence applications was widespread, particularly in soybeans. The potential for the interaction of herbicides resulting in adverse effects to crops continued to be an issue. Grower expectations for weed management and company programs also impacted overall weed control strategies. Finally, weed management in no tillage programs and CRP was a concern. This paper will briefly discuss factors that influenced the development of the problems.
