Question of the Week – Glyphosate Injury

This week, the question was: What happened to these beets? Only the last 6′ of 6 beds are affected.

These beets were injured by glyphosate overspray. The applicator was spraying the row middles and forgot to turn off the sprayer while turning around at the end of the row. The most heavily sprayed plants have already died, but luckily, only a few row feet were affected. Even experienced applicators make can mistakes, so be sure to stay aware of what you’re doing at all times.

This week’s question is from Coastal Extension Agent Zack Snipes.
