Metribuzin-tolerance Screening of Selected Soybean Cultivars

🕔09:25, 1.Mar 2012

For many years, one of the mainstay residual herbicides in soybean weed control systems was metribuzin (Sencor/Lexone). One of the drawbacks to metribuzin use is the sensitivity of some soybean varieties to this herbicide. A research project conducted by Mississippi State University and the University of Arkansas screened some of the modern germplasms available to producers for metribuzin tolerance.

Ground Speed Affects Spray Droplet Deposition

Ground Speed Affects Spray Droplet Deposition

🕔14:20, 11.Mar 2011

As producers prepare for spray applications this growing season, it is imperative to consider proper spray nozzle selection. As ground speed increases, the orifice size of the nozzle must be increased to maintain the desired GPA. A larger orifice naturally produces larger droplets which equates to poor coverage with contact herbicides. With this in mind, it is recommended to make spray applications at a reasonable ground speed that allows for the use of a spray nozzle that will produce a medium droplet size conducive for contact herbicides.
