Last week the question was: What is this weed?
This is swinecress. This is a cool season weed that we are seeing pop up in rapeseed and wheat fields right now. Usually our preemergent herbicides do a good job on swinecress. This one was in a field that didn’t get a preemergent herbicide because it began raining for several days as soon as the field was planted and soggy conditions prohibited the grower from getting a sprayer in the field.
Here is this week’s question: Is this a male or female squash blossom? How can you tell?
