[Narrator] [Pictures of showing soybean fields with weeds] Weed pressures can be reduced next year by making a written record of this year's weed problems.

Before harvesting this year's crop go into your fields and make a written record of this year's weed situation. [Slide – Before harvest, go into your fields and record this year's weed situation. Picture of a soybean field.]

[Slide – Record Weed Data; Types of weeds? Which fields? Picture of a soybean field.]

What types of weeds were in the fields?

Which fields were the weeds located in?

[Slide – Record Weed Data; Herbicides used? What worked? Picture of a soybean field.]

And what herbicides were used? What herbicides worked and what did not work?

[Slide – Record Weed Data; Make records before harvest. Picture of a soybean field.]

It is important to record this information before harvest because it will all be erased in the field after harvest.

[Slide – Consult this information to determine a weed management strategy for next year and reduce weed pressures. Picture of a soybean field.]

You can consult your information next year to have an idea of what to expect, what weed management strategies worked and what did not work to ensure a more productive harvest.
