LITTLE ROCK – New editions of the most-referenced annual publications from the University
of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture are now available for online download and
through your local Cooperative Extension Service office.
The 2018 editions of MP44 (“Recommended Chemicals for Weed and Brush Control for Arkansas”),
MP144 (“Insecticide Recommendations for Arkansas”) and MP154 (“Arkansas Plant Disease Control Products Guide”) — along with hundreds of other
publications — can be found in electronic form by visiting https://www.uaex.uada.edu/publications/order.aspx. Publications can be downloaded in PDF form at no cost.
The publications are also widely available from your local CES agent. Contact your
local CES office to see if they have your desired publication on hand; if they don’t
have it, they will order it for you.
Dr. Vic Ford, Interim Associate Director - Agriculture and Natural Resources for the
Division of Agriculture, said the publications are a reflection of the most up-to-date
research and recommendations available to producers from the Division of Agriculture’s
agronomists and other researchers.
“Recommendations change yearly based on research results, the availability of pesticides,
and government regulations,” Ford said. “The faculty yearly meet and discuss each
recommendation. These updates are very important because pesticide labeling changes
frequently and more information about economic control is generated.
“It’s important that the pesticides are applied according to recommendations to insure
efficacy and minimal environmental impact,” he said.
Each publication contains crucial information about pest and disease management, including
which chemicals are effective in controlling specific pests and situations, recommended
formulations, time of applications and more. The publications also include illustrations
describing the best arrangements for application spray nozzles and other key aspects
of proper use.
For the curious, the “MP” stands for “miscellaneous publication.” The Division of
Agriculture’s first MP44 was published in 1961, and numbered nine pages; this year's
edition numbers about 200 pages.
To learn about publications available through the Division of Agriculture, contact
your local Cooperative Extension Service agent or visit www.uaex.uada.edu.
