On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, the University of Wisconsin Weed Science team shares results from a new study on herbicide-resistant waterhemp.  

In the Cover Crop Connection segment, assistant editor Mackane Vogel stops by the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute field day to learn about alternative cover crops.

Plus, Eric Reed shares some of the secrets to his high-yielding success in less-than-ideal conditions on the Alabama/Tennessee border, we get the scoop on a dual-purpose perennial crop that’s showing major promise in the U.S., and say farewell to the John Deere Moldboard Plow 3710!

This episode of Conservation Ag Update is brought to you by Yokohama Off-Highway Tires.

VF tires are constructed with sidewalls that enable them to bear heavier loads and operate at lower inflation pressures than traditional radial tires. In fact, VF tires, like our Alliance AgriFlex+ range, can carry up to 40% more load than a conventional radial tire at the same inflation pressure or operate at up to 40% lower air pressure under the same load.  VF tires offer quantifiable improvements on the farm. For example, the ability to carry heavier loads can cut down significantly on fuel use and reduce machine hours, while the ability to operate at lower inflation pressures allows tires to produce larger footprints, which can improve traction and reduce soil compaction. The best part is, you can choose which benefit works best for your operation. Learn More at https://yokohama-oht.com.
