This episode featured Drs. Debalin Sarangi, Extension weed management specialist and Tom Peters, Extension sugarbeet agronomist to discuss what worked and what didn’t for weed control in 2021. We discussed some of the observations across the state and in the research trials this year, and how that can be used to help improve weed control in 2022.
Today is August 11, 2021, and earlier this morning we recorded another episode of the Strategic Farming: Field Notes program. The Field Notes program is a weekly update on the current crop situation and crop management considerations. Today’s session was moderated by U of MN Extension Crops Educators Ryan Miller and Jared Goplen. The special guests included Dr. Debalin Sarangi, Extension weed management specialist and Dr. Tom Peters, Extension sugarbeet agronomist to discuss weed management observations from 2021. There are waterhemp, velvetleaf, ragweed, and grassy weed escapes throughout Minnesota. We discussed some of the reasons for these weed escapes, as well as how to address these issues going into next year.
