    VANN M.C.; WHITLEY D.S.
    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Increased focus on residues of the plant growth regulator Maleic Hydrazide (MH) have prohibited some U.S. producers from applying the suckercide to control tobacco axillary buds. As such, an alternative to the conventional foliar application of the...

    North Carolina State University, Department of Crop Science, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    In 2011, conveyors were introduced to the US market for use in chemical sucker control programs. Due to focused application and coarse droplet size, it was initially thought that conveyors might assist in reducing maleic hydrazide (MH) residues,...
