If you farm in Tennessee or neighboring states and battle weeds, the recently published 2016 Weed Control Manual from the University of Tennessee may be for you.
The 110-publication — which is free to download from www.utcrops.com — contains recommendations for field crops, forage crops, pastures, farm ponds and harvest aids.
The recommendations are based on results of research and demonstrations conducted by the Agricultural
Experiment Station and the Agricultural Extension Service. Decisions regarding recommendations are made by the University of Tennessee Weed Control Committee and are based on three years of data at various locations in the state.
The pesticide information is provided as guidelines and can change since the publication went to press. The current label always takes precedence over recommendations foundin the manual.
The manual contains numerous charts and graphs to simply matching weeds to the appropriate herbicide.
