With the very mild winter weather conditions this year a lot of volunteer potatoes survived over winter. Growers are now seeing a lot of problems with volunteer potatoes in other crops such as corn, sugar beet, wheat and onions. Volunteer potatoes can be very hard to eliminate if the correct control measures are not taken at the most appropriate time. The potato tuber initiation stage has been shown to be the best time for herbicide application in order to kill the volunteer potato plant, prevent re-sprouting, and prevent tuber production. In this article, Dr. Pamela Hutchinson, Potato Cropping Systems Weed Scientist, has put together a great report on methods for controlling volunteer potatoes in other crops.

The early start to field preparation this spring likely resulted in some sugarbeet seed being planted into cool soils. That, in combination with the recent cool and wet weather, could be causing moderate to slower-than-average seedling development in some areas. Delays in germination or development can make young plants more vulnerable to attack by early-season insect pests, such as springtails, wireworms, cutworms, and white grubs. Read more on these pests from this Crop & Pest Report article.

Researchers at North Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota have demonstrated that a wide range of plant population with uniformly spaced plants resulted in high yield and recoverable sucrose, but plant populations of 175 to 200 plants per 100 foot of 22-inch wide rows consistently resulted in the maximum recoverable sucrose per acre. It is critical that the plants be evenly spaced within the rows. Read more on these plant populations from this Crop & Pest Report article.
