2024 Abstract - COTTON SESSION - EXPERIENCES WITH THE SEE & SPRAY: PERSPECTIVES FROM A WEED SCIENTIST AND COTTON GROWER: Dr. Jason Norsworthy, weed scientist with the University of Arkansas Systems Division of Agriculture, and David Wildy, cotton farmer in Mississippi County, Arkansas, will discuss their experiences with the See & Spray technology along with pros and cons of using the machine and targeted spray applications. A comparison of the See and Spray Ultimate and See and Spray Premium machines will be presented. The See and Spray Premium was used on more than 8,000 acres of cotton at Wildy Farms in 2023. David will show maps of sprayed fields and the associated spray savings. 2024 Abstract - RICE SESSION - UTILIZING ROGUE® SC IN HERBICIDE PROGRAMS FOR SUCCESSFUL WEED CONTROL IN SOUTHERN US RICE: This session will concentrate on the utilization of Rogue® SC into successful rice herbicide programs in the Southern US. Rogue® SC is a novel HPPD inhibiting mode of action rice herbicide and the only HPPD inhibiting herbicides used in Southern US rice. Rogue® SC, a pro-herbicide, is active only in floodwater and has no activity when applied to plant foliage or soil. Rogue® SC best management practices developed from research cooperators and on-farm learnings discussed in this session can provide useful insights on herbicide program planning, herbicide application, weed spectrum, and floodwater management.
