    Factors impacting maleic hydrazide residues on flue-cured tobacco

    REED T.D.
    Virginia Tech, Southern Piedmont Agricultural Research and Extension Center, Blackstone, VA, U.S.A.
    Maleic hydrazide (MH) remains an important compound for efficient, cost effective sucker control for flue-cured tobacco production in the U.S. Minimizing MH residues in cured tobacco is critical to maintaining the demand for U.S leaf in international...

    Potential alternative versus standard nematicides for control of Globodera tabacum solanacearum for flue-cured tobacco in Virginia in 2010-2012

    JOHNSON C.S.
    Virginia Tech, Southern Piedmont Agricultural Research and Extension Center, Blackstone, VA, U.S.A.
    Globodera tabacum solanacearum (TCN; tobacco cyst nematode) has been an important parasite of flue-cured tobacco in Virginia, and effective nematicides remain necessary when susceptible cultivars are planted and crop rotations are short. Growers are...
