1989 Crop Protection Clinic Schedule

The dates and locations for the 1989 Crop Protection Clinics have been set. As in the past, we will continue the format of 15-minute presentations with time for questions. Entomologists, Plant Pathologists, and Weed Scientists will be presenting the latest information. More details on the Clinics will be available in our November Newsletter.

Glean Removed from the Wheat Market

DuPont has just announced that the herbicide Glean will no longer be sold for wheat or fallow. The reason for this startling move is growing concern about weed resistance to Glean and perhaps to other herbicides in the sulfonylurea family. Several weed species including kochia, prickly lettuce and Russian thistle have exhibited resistance to Glean after repeated use.
