Barley weed control the subject of OSU research

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Researchers with the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University are conducting studies to determine the best weed control strategies for spring barley, a crop that is now getting more attention from farmers due to growth of the craft beer industry in Ohio and neighboring states.“We are currently in our first year of research to determine the safest and most effective herbicide programs for spring barley in Ohio,” said Mark Loux, an Ohio State University Extension weed specialist. “Summer annual weeds such as ragweeds, lambsquarters, pigweeds and foxtails are the primary weed problem in spring-planted crops, and the competitiveness of the crop with weeds will be affected by planting date and stand density, among other things.”The spring barley weed control study is taking place at the college’s Western Agricultural Research Station in South Charleston. It includes two different planting dates and different types of herbicide treatments, designed to determine what kind of weed control treatments are needed and what the crop responses and yield are.Loux said an early April planting date seems to favor competitiveness of barley against weeds that commonly impact spring crops.“One of the things about barley and crops that can go in that early is that generally the earlier you can put them in, the more competitive they will be with most of the weeds you’re going to deal with that season,” Loux said.“It’s the same principle that applies to alfalfa and other forages. The later you plant in spring, you are planting right when the weeds are all emerging, so they are going to be more competitive.”Loux said the early planted barley at the research plots at South Charleston has been outcompeting weeds fairly well so far, but “that’s not to say that when we come back later in the season some of these weeds won’t be poking above the barley or being competitive.”In terms of types of weeds impacting spring barley, Loux said an important distinction needs to be made between broadleaf weeds and grasses.“In a grass crop, broadleaf weeds are always the easy ones to control,” he said. “We have a lot of different options. But the grasses are the difficult ones, as you only have a couple of products labeled for barley that will actually control foxtail postemergence and really nothing from a residual standpoint that controls foxtail. So that’s going to be one of your issues.“In this trial we are trying to tell whether the barley can outcompete the foxtail effectively enough without a postemergence herbicide. And then we will be looking at differences in control from several broadleaf treatments. Ultimately, we will probably get good control from a bunch of those herbicides, and it will be a matter of whether any of those injure the barley or we have any yield differences.”Loux said there are a number of herbicides currently registered for use in barley, yet not all labels specifically mention spring barley. More information on specific herbicides can be found in a recent blog post from Loux at, descriptions and ratings for use of these products on summer annual weeds is provided in the Weed Control Guide for Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, available from the college’s eStore at read more

UFC 235: Kamaru Usman wins welterweight belt, Ben Askren chokes out Robbie Lawler in debut

He won his first eight UFC bouts and battered ex-champ Rafael Dos Anjos last November to earn his shot at Woodley’s belt.“Can’t nobody handle me,” Usman said. “I’ve been wanting this fight, and I’ll be honest, I might not be the best striker in the world. I might not be the best wrestler in the world. But when it comes to mixing this (stuff) up, I’m the best in the world right now.” “I was bleeding all over the place, so I just squeezed as hard as I could. Everyone is upset with Herb, but he came in and checked on Robbie (in the clinch), and Robbie gave him (no response). As a veteran, that’s on Robbie. That’s not on Herb or me.”The outspoken Askren (19-0), a former U.S. Olympic wrestler, joined the UFC late last year after a decade fighting in other promotions and sparring with UFC President Dana White on social media. The UFC surprisingly added him to its roster last year, trading former flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson to the One Championship promotion.“Dana, is that the best you’ve got?

(AP Photo/John Locher)LAS VEGAS — Kamaru Usman claimed the UFC welterweight title Saturday night, dominating Tyron Woodley for a one-sided unanimous decision victory at UFC 235.Woodley (19-4-1) had been the UFC’s 170-pound champ since July 2016 and defended the belt four times, but Usman (15-1) got off to a quick start and never let up in his first career title shot.

Lawler was furious when referee Herb Dean stopped the bout, insisting he was fine in the choke. Some cageside observers thought Lawler was unconscious, but he sprung out of the stoppage.ADVERTISEMENT P2.5 B shabu seized in Makati sting, Chinese national nabbed SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte View commentslast_img read more
