Walnut Orchard Herbicide Research and Demonstration
Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Whitney Warren Ranch, Wheatland Road, Wheatland, CA
Join UC Cooperative Extension Specialist Brad Hanson, other members of the UC Davis Weed Research Program, UC Farm Advisor Janine Hasey, and Sutter and Yuba County Ag Biologists on May 29th for discussion and observation of current herbicide research in tree nut orchards. Herbicide experiments at the Wheatland site include: 1) large plot demonstrations of residual herbicide programs including Goal/Surflan, Pindar GT, Prowl H2O, Chateau, Matrix, Alion, and Trellis herbicides; 2) Pindar GT/Prowl H2O rate and timing combinations; 3) evaluations of a currently unregistered herbicide with an alternate mode of action; 4) Matrix/Alion rate and timing comparisons; and 5) Tank mixes of low VOC partners with GoalTender for POST weed control. In addition to the experiments at this location, we will discuss observations from orchard and vineyard experiments in other areas of the Central Valley with a particular focus on the current status and management options for control of glyphosate-resistant weeds.
