Agronomy Journa l • Volume 108 , I s sue 3 • 2016 Lactofen and other diphenyl ether herbicides such as fomesafen are used in soybean production in the midsouthern United States, for control of broadleaf weeds (Kapusta et al., 1986; Wichert and Talbert 1993), particularly glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine] and acetolactate synthase (ALS)-resistant Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri S. Wats) (Norsworthy et al., 2008). When lactofen is applied postemergence, the herbicide is absorbed into…

Response of Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) and Weed Control with Postemergence Herbicides and Combinations of Cytokinin Mixtures

A field study was conducted in 2015 and 2016 in Stoneville, MS, to evaluate the influence of cytokinin products on soybean injury and weed control when combined with common POST soybean herbicide

Modification of soybean plant architecture through growth regulators and population variation

An important limitation to increased soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] grain yield is excessive plant growth. The use of growth regulators and population adjustment is imperative for the management of

Weed Control and Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr) Response to Mixtures of a Blended Foliar Fertilizer and Postemergence Herbicides

Foliar fertilizer in combination with POST soybean herbicides did not reduce soybean injury and produced inconsistent effects on weed control across herbicide treatments and between weed species.

High-Input Management Systems Effect on Soybean Seed Yield, Yield Components, and Economic Break-Even Probabilities

Soybean producers in North region are likely to realize a greater response from increased inputs, but producers across all regions should carefully evaluate adding inputs to their soybean management systems and ensure that they continue to follow the principles of integrated pest management.

Post-emergence application of herbicides and growth regulators on soybean growth and agronomic performance

Plant lodging is among the factors that limit the productive potential of the soybean crop. Growth regulators or even herbicides may be used in pre- and post-emergence of soybean to minimize the



Soybean [Glycine max (L.)] Response to Lactofen

Lactofen reduced stomatal conduc- tance of expanded leaves but had no effect on unexpanded leaves and soybean yields did not differ with lactofen treatment.

Confirmation and Control of Glyphosate-Resistant Palmer Amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) in Arkansas

The glyphosate-resistant biotype was effectively controlled with most of the evaluated herbicides, but the use of acetolactate synthase-inhibiting herbicides such as pyrithiobac, trifloxysulfuron, and imazethapyr is not a viable option for control of this Palmer amaranth population.

The Diphenylether Herbicide Lactofen Induces Cell Death and Expression of Defense-Related Genes in Soybean1

Lactofen induces late expression of a selective set of pathogenesis-related protein genes, including PR-1a, PR-5, and PR-10, mainly in treated proximal tissues, which are consistent with the fact that lactofen triggers massive isoflavone accumulations and activates the capacity for glyceollin elicit competency.

Response of Double-Crop Glyphosate-Resistant Soybean (Glycine max) to Broadleaf Herbicides1

Evaluation of the influence of broadleaf herbicides on double-crop glyphosate-resistant soybean injury and yield at Belleville, IL found diphenylether herbicides did not reduce grain yield when compared to the no-herbicide hand-weeded treatment, but imazamox reduced yield by 18%.

Yield Response of Weed-Free Soybeans (Glycine max) to Injury from Postemergence Broadleaf Herbicides

Bentazon plus 2,4-DB with or without adjuvant did not affect the yield of five soybean cultivars tested, and the effects of four postemergence herbicides on soybeans under weed-free conditions were investigated.

Early Planting, Full‐season Cultivars, and Seed Treatments Maximize Soybean Yield Potential

Results show that planting full-season cultivars before short-season ones, and perhaps choosing slightly fuller season cultivars in general, may improve soybean yields.

Determinate- and Indeterminate-Type Soybean Cultivar Responses to Pattern, Density, and Planting Date

It is concluded that seed yield of both DT and INDT soybean in subtropical latitudes is optimized by May seeding, high PPD, and use of square planting patterns as approximated by narrow-row culture.

A regional analysis of the response of soybean yield to planting date.

The average response to planting date was remarkably similar across all regions and there seems to be no consistent advantage for ultra-early planting dates with traditional cultivars, but there was a significant penalty for planting after the critical date in late May or early June.

Interrelationships among height, lodging and yield in determinate and indeterminate soybeans

The tall determinate lines had the best combination of high seed yield and excellent lodging resistance and the highest yielding indeterminate lines were tall and very susceptible to lodging.
