We are fortunate to have Mizzou undergrad and Research Assistant Jake Vaughn continue assisting in the program. In this video Jake describes a project he has been involved with over the last 3 years. He discusses the question: How does cereal rye seeding rate affect soybean growth and waterhemp suppression?
As you will see in the video, Jake shares data on soybean stand, height, and yield; cereal rye stand, biomass, and height, and early-season waterhemp suppression with cereal rye seeding rates of 30, 50, 70, 90, or 110 lb/a. He also highlights differences observed when comparing no cereal rye cover crop to a cereal rye cover.
If you have questions on this project, please contact myself or Dr. Bradley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We anticipate one more video to wrap up field day 2020. Additionally, please give feedback, whether it be on social media or directly, so that we can evaluate effectiveness of this series. The 8 previous videos can be found on our YouTube channel Mizzou Weed Science. You can also find us on Facebook and Instagram at Mizzou Weed Science and on Twitter @ShowMeWeeds.
