Preface:

This report is intended for use by agronomists and weed science personnel, as well as companies or agencies providing support for weed science at the University of Wyoming. Mention of company names, pesticide trade names, adjuvants, or other products does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by the authors or by the University of Wyoming. The project summaries contained in this report are not intended to be used as recommendations for the use of pesticides, adjuvants, or other products, nor does it imply that the pesticide uses described herein have been registered for use in Wyoming or any other state. Always read and follow label directions when using pesticides.

Appreciation is extended to the following sources for providing financial support of weed science research at the University of Wyoming: USDA National Institute for Food and Agriculture, Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station, Wyoming Department of Agriculture, University of Wyoming Department of Plant Sciences, Western Sugar Cooperative, BASF Corporation, Bayer CropScience, Dupont, Dow AgroSciences, FMC Corporation, Monsanto Corporation, NovaSource, Syngenta, Winfield Solutions, Wyoming Crop Improvement Association, and Wyoming Seed Certification.

This research could not have been completed without the cooperation of staff from the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle, and the Powell Research and Extension Center in Powell. In particular, we would like to recognize Bob Baumgartner, SAREC Farm Manager for his tireless efforts in keeping the research plots maintained.
