Research Season

Research season is officially underway with the establishment of the first new research trial of 2013. We sprayed a wheat herbicide trial in Jackson today. Expect things to heat up pretty quickly with burndown trials and wheat fungicide and insecticide trials set to begin soon. And of course, Tennessee corn planting should be underway in late March and early April.

Burndown Time

It’s burndown time in Tennessee (well almost)! Henbit and chickweed are already up to a good stand and horseweed continues to emerge. March should be “prime time” for spraying burndown trials.
