No votes yet
Your rating: None

Caneberry plants consist of perennial crowns and root systems and biennial vegetative shoots, or canes. The vegetative shoots of caneberries are referred to as primocanes and the flowering and fruiting canes are referred to as floricanes. Normally, these stages of cane are separated by one growing season; however, more contemporary varieties of caneberries grow vegetatively and flower and fruit in one year.

Effective pesticide applications require attention to factors that influence product performance: product selection, label instructions, equipment calibration, and application timing. Applicators also learn about product performance from trial and error and from industry and university recommendations.

Equipment for weed control in vineyards

0
No votes yet
Your rating: None

Herbicides, although relatively inexpensive, require good application techniques if improved deposition and drift reduction is to occur. Some of the commonly used herbicides damage vines and so great care must be taken. Drift has been a major concern for some years, off target application wastes money, reduces deposition on the target plant, damages vines, can lead to pesticide residue on grapes, pollutes water courses and may cause nausea to other people

Your rating: None

ksu-logo.jpgHerbicides are chemicals that inhibit or interrupt normal plant growth and development. They are widely used in agriculture, industry, and urban areas for weed management. Herbicides can provide cost-effective weed control while minimizing labor. However, improper herbicide use may result in crop injury, poor weed control, herbicide resistant weeds, environmental contamination, or health risks. Herbicide mode of action refers to how herbicides work.
