BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - The most updated version of a set of guides that provide recommendations to farmers and others for controlling weeds, insects and diseases in a number of crops are now available online.
The South Dakota State University Extension says the 2016 Pest Management guides can be downloaded free.
The pest management guides provide information relevant to alfalfa, oilseeds, corn, soybeans, wheat and other cereal grains, including barley, rye, oats, durum, millet and triticale.
Paul Johnson is the Extension’s weed science coordinator. He says the guides have been completely updated for 2016. He adds that several new products have new names and corresponding changes made to the labels such as rates for the chemicals, rotation restrictions, additive rates and products.
