Website helps potato growers avoid, manage glyphosate issues

Glyphosate can be a great solution for potato growers, especially for pre-plant control of weeds and volunteer grains.

However, drift, tank contamination, and misapplication during the growing season can reduce the yield and quality of potato crops. Similar effects on seed potatoes can be found well into the following year.

In this month’s “Focus on Potato” webcast, titled “Effect of Glyphosate on Potatoes,” Andrew Robinson, assistant professor and Extension potato agronomist at North Dakota State University and University of Minnesota, helps practitioners in the potato industry better understand and identify the effects of glyphosate in potatoes and how it can be managed.

In this talk, Robinson specifically explains:

How glyphosate comes into contact with potatoes;

Symptoms of glyphosate in potato plants and what you should look for;

Symptoms of glyphosate residues in seed; and

Strategies for managing glyphosate issues.

This 24-minute presentation is open access through Aug. 31.
