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.
cover crop is a noncash crop grown in the middles between tree rows and, in some situations, between trees within rows. Cover crops can provide many benefits in orchards and vineyards and have seen increasing use in recent years. This new handbook outlines a step-by-step process for success – including suggested cover crops, orchard factors to consider when choosing a cover crop, how and when to plant, and how to manage the cover crop.
Con la finalidad de evaluar el nivel de control de malezas con el uso de coberturas vegetales en el cultivo de la caraota (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) y determinar el efecto que sobre algunos componentes del rendimiento tienen estos métodos en comparación al control químico y manual, se condujo un ensayo bajo diseño de bloques al azar con ocho tratamientos y cuatro repeticiones.
These guidelines represent the best information currently available to the authors and are intended to help you in making the best choices for an IPM program. Not all formulations or registered materials are mentioned. Always check the label and with local authorities for the most up-to-date information regarding registration and restrictions on pesticide use. Check with your agricultural commissioner for latest restricted entry intervals.
- Precautions for using pesticides
These practices are recommended for a monitoring-based IPM program that enhances pest control and reduces environmental quality problems related to pesticide use.
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

Herbicides 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.
