Yesterday Barrett Courville and I took stand counts at the Hoffpauir Demo location that is just southwest of Rayne, La (Acadia Parish). Boy, it was another beautiful day here in south Louisiana! The fields are coming along well. We took stand counts and plant height measurements in Dermacor X-100, Cruiser-Maxx and one untreated cut. We will be entering and analyzing the data soon. In the meantime, here are some pictures of the fields.
The next step with this field will be to scout for rww adults in the days leading up to permanent flood. If rww adults and scarring are found in the field, we will apply a pyrethroid to two of the cuts at the eastern end of the series of cuts.
