Mark VanGessel, Extension Weed Specialist;

There is a new “Mid-Atlantic Field Crop Weed Management Guide” developed by weed specialists from Penn State, University of Delaware, University of Maryland, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia University. The 240-page guide covers corn, sorghum, soybean, small grains, and hay and pastures. The guides includes information on commonly used herbicides for these crops, including relative effectiveness for burndown, preemergence, and postemergence control of most of the common weeds in the region. In addition, there are tables for herbicide premixes and what is included in the premixes, and a section on management of problem weeds. The guide is available in the Delaware county Extension offices for $15 or can be ordered on-line at Available on-line are the printed copies for $25 for a printed copy; an enhanced pdf copy for use on computers and tablets for $15; or both a hard copy and pdf for $35.
