Improve Ragweed Management Practices with New ‘Focus on Cotton’ Webcast
Excessive reliance on glyphosate to control ragweed has allowed resistant varieties to flourish in cotton production systems. A new Focus on Cotton webcast titled “Herbicide-resistant Common Ragweed Management in Cotton” helps cotton growers, consultants, and other industry experts diversify management practices and herbicide applications to better control ragweed populations.
This 27-minute talk by Charlie Cahoon, Extension Weed Specialist at Virginia Tech University, provides information that helps users:
- Improve cover crop selection and rotation strategies
- Avoid ineffective control measures and herbicide applications
- Assess different pre- and post-emergence herbicide combinations
This presentation is available at no charge, courtesy of Cotton Incorporated, through the ‘Focus on Cotton’ webcast resource located at the Plant Management Network, http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/foco. ‘Focus on Cotton’ contains over 50 webcasts on various aspects of cotton crop management. These talks–freely accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week–cover agronomic practices, crop protection, and ag engineering. This resource also features a new and improved Cotton Extension Search tool, where users can conveniently search for extension resources across all U.S. land-grant universities serving cotton producers.
