Weed control at spring planting, an increasing challenge with herbicide-resistant weeds, presents extra concerns when temperatures stay low, day and night. Weather bears watching more than usual. Kevin Bradley, University of Missouri weed specialist, knows how to control weeds when warm weather makes plant biology work. When spring air temperatures rise above 60 F and don't drop to frosty levels at night, the plants, including weeds, grow rapidly.
With this growing problem of weed resistance spreading across the United States, it is important to take a comprehensive approach to fighting resistance and controlling weeds. Proper weed identification is fundamental to any effective weed control program.
Louisiana State University AgCenter weed scientists confirmed that farmers will now have to contend with another herbicide-resistant weed, Italian ryegrass.

Corn traders seemed disappointed by Thursday’s Export Sales report. Potential improvements in spring planting conditions have been weighing corn futures. Traders also seemed less than impressed by the weekly USDA Export Sales report, which stated last week’s result toward the lower end of the forecast range. May corn slid 2.75 cents to $4.9475/bushel in late Thursday trading, while December lost 2.25 to $4.9675.
