To reduce irrigation water use in northwest Texas, Senninger Irrigation offers a solution to mount center pivots with Low Energy Precision Application bubbler pads and double their drops from 60-inch increments to a tighter 30-inch spacing between heads. Bubblers apply water near the soil surface and directly into crop rows. Keeping the water close to the ground, producers avoid wetting crop leaves and reduce the amount of water lost to evaporation. With 30-inch spacing, producers can also water the majority of the soil surface to reduce dry spots between rows. The theory behind the application method is the weight of standing water on a soil’s already wetted surface will push water deeper into the soil to fill the profile. For more information, see a dealer or visit www.senningerirrigation.com.

Vaccine helps provide respiratory protection for beef, dairy cattle

Zoetis, Florham Park, New Jersey, announced the addition of ONE SHOT BVD to its comprehensive vaccine portfolio. The new vaccine helps provide combined respiratory protection against Mannheimia haemolytica and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses in a single dose.

ONE SHOT BVD helps cattle producers expand respiratory vaccination programs that currently include INFORCE 3 respiratory vaccine, which is used to help protect beef and dairy calves.

Young calves need additional respiratory protection due to underdeveloped immune systems and exposure to environmental stressors, which can cause them to fall victim to respiratory infection.

As the second-most significant disease impacting dairy operations and the leading cause of death in beef calves between 3 weeks of age and weaning, BRD can negatively affect the health, productivity and profitability of young calves.

ONE SHOT BVD is available in 10- or 50-dose vials and can be purchased through veterinarians or animal health retailers.

Peanut growers can access new herbicide

Peanut growers looking to control their fields’ toughest weeds­—including Palmer pigweed, waterhemp, lambsquarter, giant foxtail, and nightshade, among other small-seeded broadleaf weeds and grasses—have yet another tool for the 2014 growing season.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently approved Warrant herbicide for use in peanuts. Warrant is an encapsulated acetochlor, first introduced by Monsanto in 2010, that has been used on millions of acres to control weeds in cotton, soybeans and grain sorghum.

Growers will be able to use the treatment in most peanut-growing states where acetochlor is currently labeled—including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas, according to Monsanto officials.

Warrant will be labeled for pre-emerge and post-emerge application, but officials emphasized that pre-emergence application is not recommended due to potential for crop injury. Instead, Monsanto recommends application from post-emergence through flowering. Warrant’s rate is 3 to 4 pints per application, not to exceed 8 pints in a single season.

Warrant was also recently approved for use in sugarbeets.
