The Dakotan:
This is Ag Issues with Neil Roberts.

Neil Roberts:
Welcome to another edition of Ag Issues. Our guest this week is India's Sue Wheat scientist Brian Jenks from the North Central Research Extension Center. And Brian, it's been a wet spring while weeds might be behind a bit. I know they're coming. And this report, let's talk annuals and burn down. Yeah, it's getting busy out there in a hurry, isn't it?

Brian Jenks:
It certainly is. We're finally getting dry enough to get out in the field. I know farmers really want to get out in the field and get things planted. They're not really focused at this point on spring, but the weeds are coming. They're a little bit slower, especially kosher. Maybe some winter annuals and others are lurking underneath the surface, getting ready to pop out as we get more heat. Now, some of the herbicides that we need to consider are life estate. We might be a little bit short on some glyphosate, so we may want to consider some other options, including sharpen and aim wider remarks on some of those that we can take mix with Roundup to try and control those emerging weeds and maybe some of those kosher and other plants that are developing resistance.

Neil Roberts:
All right. Good stuff, Brian. Hey, we'll talk those that have residuals when we come back.

The Dakotan:
You're listening to Ag Issues with Neil Roberts on the Dakotan Network.

Neil Roberts:
Talking Weeds today. With Brian Jenks. And Brian, how about herbicides, we can use that also have residual effects?

Brian Jenks:
In addition to our glyphosate sharpening remarks on the don't have residual, we can use other herbicides that do have residual to control the weeds as they are emerged, but also control those we emerge later, including Spartan Valor metric using when we tank mixed with Spartan and valor, we have to include Amos and Marcel.

Neil Roberts:
Good stuff, Brian. Hey, that brings this report to a close. If you missed one, check us on the website agissues.com. Until next time. I'm Neil Roberts.
