Corrections to the 2004 Illinois Agricultural Pest Management Handbook
In Chapter 2, page 43, the components of Basis Gold should be 1.3% rimsulfuron + 1.3% nicosulfuron + 86.9% atrazine. Also, in chapter 2, page 97, the premix calculations for Backdraft SL 1.35L are incorrect. If you applied 2.5 pts of Backdraft, you have applied 0.094 lb a.e. imazaquin and 0.56 lb a.e. glyphosate.
Other corrections to the handbook include changes in formulations of a few herbicides. These corrections are addressed in "Product Updates in Weed Management."--Dawn Nordby
