Learn about social implications of herbicide choice; annual crop fertility issues

The Frontier Extension District will hold a virtual meeting on “Crop Fertility Issues and Social Implications on Herbicide Choice,” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 3, 2021.

Crop fertility issues surface each year. This virtual crop update features Dr. Dorivar Ruiz Diaz, who will address the latest fertility issues arising in corn and soybeans. Each year sees an increase in potash deficiency and during the growing season. Ruiz Diaz will address these issues and more during the presentation.

Herbicide choice not only has an effect on your crops, but potentially on the neighbors’ as well. Kansas State University agronomy specialists Terry Griffin and Sarah Lancaster will use a game approach that they developed to show how herbicide choices can affect others. With awareness of drift and proper management, hopefully specialty herbicides can continue to be used as effective tools in weed control for producers.
