New ‘Focus on Cotton’ Webcast Identifies Key Practices and Programs for Managing Glyphosate-resistant Johnsongrass
Glyphosate-resistant Johnsongrass can completely overtake a cotton field if managed improperly. It is one of the most tenacious weeds because of its ability to reproduce and spread through rhizomes.
The Focus on Cotton webcast titled “Glyphosate-Resistant Johnsongrass Management” helps cotton growers, consultants, and other industry experts identify effective herbicide programs and other management techniques that limit Johnsongrass growth before and after emergence.
This 22-minute talk by Daniel O. Stephenson, IV, Associate Professor and Weed Science Specialist at Louisiana State University, provides information that helps users:
- Evaluate the effectiveness of different herbicide schedules
- Select and implement a zero tolerance, total herbicide program
- Reduce infestation potential with rotation and sanitation techniques
