BROOKINGS, S.D. — South Dakota 2017 Pest Management guides are available online as PDF downloads or as hard copies at SDSU Extension Regional Centers and SDSU Extension events.
“The guides provide recommendations for herbicides, insecticides, seed treatments, and fungicides that are available in South Dakota for controlling weeds, insects, and diseases,” explained Paul Johnson, SDSU Extension Weed Science Coordinator.
The guides are available for the following crops:
* Sunflower & Oilseeds/Alfalfa & Range – including alfalfa, canola, flax, safflower, and sunflowers
* Wheat – including barley, rye, oats, durum, millet, and triticale.
Thanks to generous sponsorships, the guides are available at no cost to South Dakotans. Sponsors include: South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, the SDSU Extension IPM Program, South Dakota Department of Agriculture, and the SDSU Extension WEED Project.
The guides were updated for 2017 to include new products, new product names and the corresponding changes to the labels including application rates, rotation restrictions, and additive rates. Cost estimates are included for the herbicide products.
