AGRONOMY UPDATE

Now that crops are emerging, so are many different weed species. Competition from weeds can reduce yields by stealing important nutrients, water, and sunlight from the crop. Controlling weeds early in the year will prevent yield loss later on in the season. The “critical weed free period” is the time in a plant’s life when it is most susceptible to competition. For corn, this period lasts at least as long as V6 and for soybeans, it’s at least until V3.  It’s important to scout for weeds to know how soon, and with what chemicals you will need to spray to control the weeds on your farm. By the time you can see them from the road, it’s too late. Weeds should be controlled by the time they are 3 inches tall for the herbicide to be effective.

When it comes to choosing the right herbicides, it’s important to know which weed species you are dealing with. Some weeds, such as waterhemp and kochia, can be resistant to glyphosate and be tougher to control. Herbicide programs should be based on field scouting and not all of the fields on your farm should be treated the same. You will likely need to use multiple herbicides to control the variety of weeds in a field.

To avoid resistance on your farm, be sure to use multiple modes of action. Using different chemical groups on the same weed significantly lowers the chances of it developing resistance. It’s also a good idea to use a residual product, such as Warrant or Dual, with your post-emergent herbicides to keep new weeds from germinating. This may even save a second trip later in the season to control a new flush of weeds.
