AGRONOMY UPDATE

                                           Soybean Rescue Treatments

Now that we have made a post-emergent pass on the soybeans, many are hoping to be done spraying in those fields. However, in some of the wider-rowed soybeans, this may not be the case. As we wait for the rows to close, waterhemp and other tough weeds continue germinate and grow at a rapid pace. It’s important to continue to scout soybean fields for weeds into July, or until the soybean rows have completely closed.

Weed escapes are common and should be addressed as soon as possible. Weeds should always be sprayed before reaching 4 inches in height for the herbicides to be effective. The biggest obstacle is the limited number of herbicides labeled for spraying late in the year. Carryover to next year’s crop and pre-harvest intervals are concerns that should be taken into consideration. Products containing dicamba (xtendimax) and fomesafen (flexstar) are two of the products that are not labeled for late-season use. Be sure to consult the label before applying any herbicides. With contact herbicides such as Liberty or Cobra, coverage is crucial for effective weed control. Make sure to use 20 gallons of water per acre and flat fan nozzles for better coverage.

Here are a few rescue treatment options:

Enlist One- can be sprayed twice per season at a maximum of 2 pints per acre per pass up to the R2 stage. Enlist can only be applied to enlist-tolerant soybeans.

Liberty- Can be sprayed up to R2 on Liberty tolerant soybeans.

Cobra- Can be sprayed up to the R6 stage.

Roundup Powermax- Can be sprayed up to the R2 stage

Volunteer corn is a common weed that can cause significant yield loss. Include a product such as Fusilade, Select Max, or Targa to take care of the volunteer corn. If applying these herbicides, add HSOC to increase the vol. corn control.
