LITTLE ROCK — The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture has released
the 2023 edition of three publications containing updated research-based recommendations
for managing pests, weeds and diseases in row crop agriculture as well as fruit, vegetable
and garden production.

offices. UADA graphic/Oliver Williams
The guides are available online for download, and nearly 20,000 printed copies have
been distributed to county extension offices where residents can pick up free copies.
The 2023 publications are:
“MP” stands for “miscellaneous publication.”
“These publications provide control methods of pests on crops, livestock, and around
the home,” said Victor L. Ford, the Division of Agriculture’s associate vice president
for agriculture and natural resources. “These are not only for farmers but also for
homeowners, commercial applications and others who need to control pests. The recommendations
are based on the best research available and the product label. Both organic and non-organic
recommendations are included in the guides.”
MP44, “Recommended Chemicals for Weed and Brush Control” is a useful resource for
anyone using herbicides for weed control.
“The 2023 edition of Recommended Chemicals for Weed and Brush Control has been fully
updated to include the latest herbicide releases, application guidelines, and other
herbicide recommendations for the state of Arkansas,” said Tommy Butts, extension
weed scientist for the Division of Agriculture. “This information is the direct result
of first-hand research conducted across the state and is possible due to funding from
all of our state commodity boards.”
MP144, “Insecticide Recommendations for Arkansas,” contains information on recommended
insecticides in row crops, animal agriculture, fruits, nuts, vegetables and household
pests. A mobile-friendly edition of MP 144 is available at https://mp144.uada.edu/.
The “Arkansas Plant Disease Control Products Guide” — or MP154 — includes a list of fungicides and nematicides registered for use in Arkansas that
are used to control diseases of row crops, vegetables, small fruits, turfgrass and
ornamental plants. This year’s edition includes a few new fungicides and updated fungicide
efficacy tables for corn, soybean and wheat, extension plant pathologist Travis Faske
said. All of the information in the guides is generated by extension plant pathologists
who conduct applied research trials across the state.
