!! .ances TEN YEARS AGO February 19, 1981 Two early morning thieves broke into the home of Mrs. Otto Tostengard in Dovray about 4 a.m. on February 10. They quickly hustled Mrs. Tostengard into the bathroom and locked the door while they proceeded to collect silver trays and items of value Mrs. Tostengard was frightened but not injured. The robbers were foiled by a neighbor of Mrs. Tostengard who happened to be awake and wrote down the license number of a car parked outside.

Resistance to antibiotics, insecticides and fungicides is not new, however, the development of herbicide resistant weeds is a fairly recent concern. Herbicide resistant weeds were first identified more than 30 years ago. One of the fLrst identifications of a herbicide resistant weed was in Belgium in the 1950's when 2,4- D resistant dandelions were identified. In the 1980's atrazine resistant lambsquarter was identified in five Minnesota counties. In all cases where atrazine resistant weeds were identified, there has been continuous use of the same herbicide, or a herbicide with the same mode of action. In addition, the resistance was found where there was not a crop rotation or 'rotation of herbicides used. In some cases atrazine had been applied for up to ten years in a row. This repeated use of the same herbicide caused a shift in the weed spectrum in these fields, and favored the development of the Stanley and Ruth.'< Madson returned Sunday night from a trip to Greenville, SC.

Of greater concern is the resistance to two families of herbicides which have been in use for less than ten years. The speed of resistance development and the fact that herbicides in these families are labeled for corn, soybeans or small grain is of major concern for southern Minnesota farmers. The two families of herbicides are the sulfonylureas which include the products Classic, Pinnacle, Harmony, Express, Harmony Extra, Glean, Ally, Accent and Beacon, and the imidazolinones which include the products Sceptor and Pursuit. The weeds Kochia, Russian thistle and prickly lettuce have developed resistance to the sulfonylurea herbicides. These resistant weeds now occur in eight locations in five states. These three weed species also have cross tolerance to some of the imidazolinone herbicides. This is to be e.xpected since the herbicides have similar modes of action. There has been some concern regarding two new post-emergence herbicides in corn (Accent and Beacon) and soybeans (Pursuit). As long as these herbicides are not the only two herbicides used in a corn/soybean rotation there shodd be no problem in weeds becoming For your towing needs, - We have the latest in Modern TOghnoloovl C & L Auto SENTINEL & TRIBUNE Walnut Grove - Westbrook, MN - Wednesday, February King Otto Oiom and Queen Agnes Schneider.

Therefore, some soil applied pre-emergence or preplant herbicides should be considered when Accent, Beacon and Pursuit are used. If you suspect that a field may have a problem with herbicide resistant weeds contact your County Extension Service. Some questions to ask to help in that determination include: 1) Has the same herbicide or a herbicide with the same mode of action been used on the field for several seasons? 2) Has past performance of the herbicide been good? 3) Is herbicide performance poor on just one of two weed species, but good on others? and 4) Have other reasons for poor herbicide performance been eliminated? Some guidelines to help avoid the buildup of herbicide resistant weeds include crop rotation. Besides the many other beneficial effects of crop rotation, it will help delay the buildup of resistant weeds. Use integrated weed control practices. Integrate the best combiaations ,of cultural, mechanical and chemical weed controI~methods. In oiher words, don't rely solely on herbicides to control weeds. Rotate herbicides used. Do not use the same herbicides or herbicides with similar modes of action repeatedly. Cultivating, rotary hoe practices plus using additional herbicides that are not in the same family or mode of action will reduce the potential for herbicide "resistant weeds. A bulletin explaining modes of action of the common herbicides is available at the Extension Office, ask for AG-FO-3832.
