10/20/14

Common chickweed (Stellaria media) that is resistant to Group 2, or ALS-inhibiting herbicides, is on the increase in certain areas of the U.S., and can be a considerable problem in wheat production.

Multiple herbicide-resistant weeds and the challenges ahead

09/24/14

The evolution and widespread distribution of herbicide-resistant weeds and their management is a challenge for crop producers and land managers. The evolution of herbicide-resistant weeds is not new. The first report dates back to 1970, when common groundsel (Senecio vulgaris) resistant to atrazine was confirmed in Washington. Recently, multiple-resistance was confirmed in Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) in a continuous seed corn production field in Nebraska.

Market Commentary

Morning Comments 10/31


The corn rally has stalled. Disappointing results on the weekly Export Sales report seemed to bring the recent corn rally to a grinding halt. Bulls now seemingly face increased resistance, as evidenced by the lack of strength exhibited overnight, despite across-the-board soy gains. We probably shouldn’t be surprised if long liquidation dominates today’s trading. December corn futures stalled at $3.7425/bushel early Friday morning, while May lost 0.25 to $3.955.
