Question of the Week – No Rain

Posted by romeethredge on June 6, 2013

Last week I had a photo of a dryland peanut field that had a good herbicide sprayed on just after planting and there were pigweed up?  Well, if you looked closely you saw tire tracks from the tractor at planting. In other words this field had not had any rain since planting. No rain means that the herbicide didn’t get activated and moved into the soil and we have pigweed emergence. This grower sprayed these peanuts the next day with a contact herbicide to control them.

This photo below is of an irrigated field and you can tell where the sprayer cut off and we have pigweed emergence in the turnrow.


Here’s this week’s question. What is this that I found on a corn leaf? Who’s the bad guy here?
