Glyphosate & Micronutrients - Separating the Grain from the Chaff
Tuesday, January 24 11:00am - 12:00pm Room 4
Wednesday, January 25 1:30pm - 2:30pm Room 2
Jim Camberato is an Extension and research Associate Professor in the Agronomy Department at Purdue University, in Indiana, USA. He has been working with soil fertility and plant nutrition for 25 years, both in the Corn Belt and in the southeastern USA.
Essential crop micronutrients (especially manganese) and glyphosate interact in complex ways reducing herbicidal efficacy, inducing micronutrient deficiency, and increasing plant disease. These interactions, their consequences to crop production, and micronutrient application strategies in cropping systems employing glyphosate will be discussed.
