Nutsedge Plot Tours

Yellow nutsedge will be the featured topic of a plot tour hosted by Mississippi State University’s Delta Research and Extension Center (DREC) on Friday, May 31, 2013, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Yellow nutsedge is an early-emerging, perennial weed that begins to emerge in late February through early April in the Mississippi Delta region. Spring burndown treatments typically include glyphosate which is somewhat weak on yellow nutsedge. Moreover, as the soil warms faster with the removal of winter vegetation this in turn encourages yellow nutsedge to emerge from tubers deep in the ground.

Yellow nutsedge control in soybean

Many questions arise every year on what producers can do to help manage yellow nutsedge in soybean. To help answer some of these questions a research trial has been established to demonstrate various control tactics for this weed both preemergence and postemergence in soybean.

We will meet in the B.F. Smith Auditorium at the DREC for a brief introduction and seminar on nutsedge identification then travel a short distance to the trial area.

This project has been partially funded in part by the Mississippi Soybean Promotion Board. Boots are recommended. For more information, contact Tom Eubank at teubank@drec.msstate.edu or (662) 686-3232.
