Kimberly Rhizomania Nursery 2023

May12 The commercial field was planted May 1 and the genetics was planted on May 2. Both were planted into dry ground and got irrigated for the first time on May 5. The second irrigation was on May 12 for both fields.
June2 The stand is good in the commercial area. The Commercial alleyways got cut on Tue May 30. The field got glyphosate application on Thursday June 1. The genetic field got the alleyways sprayed out with glyphosate on Wed May 31. The genetic plot areas are scheduled for cultivation on Mon June 5. Hand weeding is scheduled for Wed June 7.
June15 The glyphosate in the commercial area and cultivation/hand weeding in the genetics were affective. We have good weed control and the plots look good. We will likely spray glyphosate again before the end of June in the commercial area.
June26 Symptoms are becoming evident in the susceptible entries. We will be applying the second glyphosate application this week to the commercial area.
July13 Both the commercial and genetic areas have nice symptoms already. The genetic area was hand weeded.
July24 The symptoms are developing nicely and foliar ratings will be taken late in August.
August24 The foliar data has been taken on both the commercial and genetic fields. The nursery is scheduled for harvest the end of Sept/beginning of Oct.
