Research Project: WEED CONTROL FOR MINOR AND SPECIALTY CROPS

Location: Global Change and Photosynthesis Research Unit

2012 Annual Report


1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
Conduct trials necessary for registration of modern herbicides for safe use in minor and specialty crops.


1b.Approach (from AD-416):
Based on priority projects established by IR-4 and USDA, evaluate herbicides alone or in combination with other management methods to support registration on minor and specialty crops. Data will include determination of weed control efficacy and/or collection of plant samples for chemical residue determination.


3.Progress Report:

Residue experiments were conducted on azoxystrobin, mefenoxam+copper, pendimethalin, quinclorac, carfentrazone-ethyl, oryzalin, cyantraniliprole, diquat, fluazifop-p-butyl, metaldehyde, qgu42, sulfentrazone, and V-10208 with researchers at Michigan State University. Completed field notebooks were submitted to the IR-4 headquarters to support the petition processes for label registration of the herbicides on caneberry, asparagus, carrot, tomato, green onion, succulent shelled bean, blueberry, onion, cantaloupe, cucumber, apple, pepper, and strawberry.
