Field Crops Webinar 3-8-21 - Weed Management - Christy Sprague and Erin Burns
From Eric Anderson
In the session on March 8, MSU Extension weed scientists Christy Sprague and Erin Burns focused on “Weed Control—Effective Options for Tough Weeds at Different Price Points.” Herbicides are the main component of many weed management programs in field crops. To reduce weed control costs, herbicide programs can be changed, although the cost of herbicides is relatively small compared to the economic cost and loss that can be caused by weeds.
This presentation highlighted approaches to designing a cost-effective weed management plan for your farm including sharing results from over 10 years of economic comparisons of weed control programs in corn and soybean.
