"These guides have been completely updated for 2016," said Paul O. Johnson, SDSU Extension Weed Science Coordinator. "There are several new products that have new names and corresponding changes made to the labels such as: rates for the chemicals, rotation restrictions, additive rates and products."
Johnson added that the prices for the products however are similar to last year.
Sponsors that have made the guides free of charge possible include: the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion council, The South Dakota Wheat Commission, the SDSU Extension IPM Program, South Dakota Department of Agriculture and the SDSU Extension WEED Project.
Without these sponsors the South Dakota Pest Management guides could not be updated each year.
