Tradenames and Common Names for Pesticides in Ag Chem Manual

— Written By

Question:

Do you have any idea why David Jordan didn’t put the commercial names of herbicides in the 2016 Ag Chem manual? It’s going to be hard for industry people and farmers the way it is set up.

Answer:

Note that Alan York did not do so either for cotton. There are many generics out there and we get criticized for not listing all of the possibilities. This was a way to address that criticism and be fair. There is a table that has the common name and the commercial products listed. Although that is certainly an extra step.

With that said, this is good feedback. Note that the peanut book was not changed to the new format. I do think the cotton book is like the Ag Chem manual.
