Weed Management Programs

The primary goals of my research program are to evaluate and develop cost-effective weed management programs in soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa. Specific areas of research include herbicide evaluation, adjuvant comparisons with herbicides, and herbicide resistant weed investigations and management strategies.

Current Ongoing Projects:
  • Winter annual grass control in winter wheat
  • Broadleaf weed control in winter wheat
  • Palmer amaranth control in alfalfa
  • Water conditioner and adjuvant comparisons with glyphosate
  • Water conditioner and adjuvant comparisons with glufosinate
  • Adjuvant comparisons with saflufenacil
  • Preplant burndown weed control in soybeans
  • Preemergence and postemergence herbicide programs for weed control in soybeans
  • Kochia control in soybeans
