Crop Issues for spring 2014

We have been doing a better job at controlling pigweeds this past year! However I still drove by fields that had maybe 15 or so plants shining up through the tops of the soybeans that could have been pulled out!  There were more fields that had pigweeds about 10 to 15 feet  around the borders only.  These should have been mowed, disked or taken out with a paraquat herbicide to prevent seed production!!  The name of the game is seed bank suppression!  With one pigweed producing a million seed...... well you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out!  Keep the pigweeds from going to seed!
