The Plant Management Network has two new offerings in its "Focus on Soybeans" webcasts.
Value of Residual Herbicide in Reduced Soybean Stands
This webcast by Vince Davis at the University of Wisconsin will help users in the North Central U.S. evaluate the importance of residual herbicide use in soybean systems to maximize profit and proactively manage for herbicide resistance. The cost of soybean seed is dramatically increasing, and this presentation discusses the interaction and relative importance of residual herbicide versus having extra soybean plants in the canopy.

This presentation will help growers and consultants in the Midwest, eastern, and mid-Atlantic regions manage slug problems in field crops when using no-till production practices. It will cover basic biology of slugs including life history and how it relates to grower practices, and then discuss an IPM approach to managing the problem.
