The National Cotton Council’s latest weed resistance videos can be accessed by clicking on the weed resistance management icon on the NCC’s home page, www.cotton.org.
The new video additions include:
• Biology and Management of Pigweed by Dr. Bob Nichols, Cotton Incorporated;
• Field Day with Dr. Stanley Culpepper, University of Georgia;
• Horseweed: Control This Weed Early by Dr. Ken Smith, University of Arkansas; and
• A Field Day with Dr. Larry Steckel, University of Tennessee.
Other videos to be added soon are Weed Resistance Management by Dr. Jason Norsworthy, and Weed Management in Corn by Dr. Ken Smith, both at the University of Arkansas.
The videos provide a substantial amount of practical information to assist producers in making their weed management plans. Some segments are lengthy, but the web access allows use of the material at times convenient to the producer. These segments will be stored on DVDs later to distribute to producers and educators as a continuing effort by the NCC to provide its membership with the best information available.
The NCC’s Technical and Communications staff continue to work with land grant university weed scientists and the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) to develop educational material that is beneficial to those producers faced with this critical issue. The NCC plans to release additional segments this fall or early spring of 2012.
