Registration for this herbicide is expected in 2016.</p> <p>Resicore will help growers control herbicide-resistant weeds through three nonglyphosate and nonatrazine modes of action. The active ingredients included in this novel formulation are acetochlor, mesotrione and clopyralid. Resicore is expected to offer flexible application timing from preplant to early postemergence.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/dow-agrosciences-announces-name-new-corn-herbicide" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Herbicides Dow AgroSciences Mon, 13 Jul 2015 05:40:24 +0000 79631 at http://farmindustrynews.com Cover crops: benefits and resources http://farmindustrynews.com/crop-protection/cover-crops-benefits-and-resources <div class="field-byline"> Source: Monte Vandeveer, Gary Lesoing, University of Nebraska-Lincoln extension educators </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Wet conditions have persisted across eastern Nebraska and in some other areas, and as spring planting winds down, some growers have been unable to complete their usual plantings.&nbsp; These growers have a number of alternatives for the unplanted acres, including planting this ground to cover crops.&nbsp; This article discusses several issues related to this alternative.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Benefits of cover crops</strong></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/crop-protection/cover-crops-benefits-and-resources" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/crop-protection/cover-crops-benefits-and-resources#comments Crop Protection Hay Mon, 06 Jul 2015 22:04:00 +0000 79561 at http://farmindustrynews.com <p>Annual ryegrass</p> Quality sampling for nematodes http://farmindustrynews.com/crop-protection/quality-sampling-nematodes <div class="field-byline"> Source: Tamra Jackson-Ziems, Extension Plant Pathologist, University of Nebraska-Lincoln </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Timing is important to a quality nematode analysis.
