Weed management resources

We have currently started the second year of a three-year partnership of ag industry, USB, and a number of land grant universities to provide education and resources for managing herbicide site of action and mitigating herbicide resistance.  This is resulting in some additional free publications for use by agronomists, growers, CCA’s, etc.  A list of what we have available — or will soon — follows.  Examples of the first four can be found on http://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/weeds, either in the “News of Interest” or the “Herbicide Resistance Information” sections — let us know if you would like a supply of any of these.

“Herbicide Classification Chart”, “Take Action”, and “Know Your Weeds” single page/posters are available in roughly a 20 by 30 size (glossy paper), and will be making some foam core posters that are about twice this large.  The smaller size would be suitable for distributing to clientele, while the larger would be suitable for the wall of a business or office.

“Control of Marestail in No-till Soybeans” — We expanded this fact sheet to 4 pages so that it provides more comprehensive information.  Can be downloaded and printed as needed, and we will be printing 2000 of these as well.

“Weed Control Guide for Ohio and Indiana” can be downloaded free as a pdf from OSU or Purdue weed science websites.  Hard copy available for purchase at many OSU Extension county offices by early January.  Available on December 20 for purchase at the OSU Extension estore – http://estore.osu-extension.org/index.cfm.

“Palmer amaranth video” provides an overview of the biology of this weed and the problems that it has caused in the South.  Can be viewed online viahttp://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/weeds.  This was also mailed out to ag industry and CCA’s on a DVD, and we have a number of these left for free distribution.

Finally — in case you are a Gotye fan or needed a fresh perspective on herbicide resistance issues —  we provide this link to a video by an Australian farmer who has apparently struggled with resistance.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7Kv5tl2rK0&feature=youtu.be
