A colleague at Ohio State University (sorry, I mean The Ohio State University) shared a recent series of extension publications they put together related to specialty crop injury from the auxininic herbicides dicamba and 2,4-D.
Dicamba and 2,4-D Fact Sheet Series
Admittedly (and thankfully!) we do not have the same challenges with these herbicides in California specialty crops as they do in the Midwest where small grains, corn, and more recently dicamba- or 2,4-D-tolerant soybeans are grown on millions of acres. However, I thought these fact sheets were well done and provide relevant information with regard to herbicide drift and investigating and documenting herbicide.../h1>

Thanks to our friend at Cornell (Lynn Sosnoskie) for sharing the article,"Oh, No, Not Knotweed!" by Henry Grabar from the Pocket Worthy website.

Today is the start of the CWSS Annual Meeting, which is being held virtually from January 25-26 on an online platform. It is not too late to sign up! There is a great program with loads of good information, and like always plenty of CE credits.
While traditionally the society's student competition is held at the meeting, this year it has shifted to an online platform. Students were asked to present a virtual poster, with both a graduate and undergraduate section of the competition. Each submission entails a PDF of the poster, accompanied by a 3-5 minute video of the student giving a rundown of their work. We had a record number of participants this year with...

We have been evaluating several herbicides on direct-seed Brassica vegetables: Bok choi, broccoli raab, collard greens, mizuna, mustard greens and radish. We also have evaluated several herbicides in transplanted Brussels Sprouts and Kale. Most of these crops appear to be quite tolerant of Dual Magnum.
The individual trial reports are attached.
Hi, my name is José Luiz Dias and I have recently joined the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) team. I am writing this blog with the goal to introduce myself, share some of my previous work experiences, as well as to share some of the short- and long-term goals I plan to implement in my extension and research programs.
Area of work
As a UCCE field crops agronomy and weed management advisor, I plan to work closely with the growers, consultants and industry personnel to develop applied research and extension activities in the Northern San Joaquin Valley (SJV) which includes...
