With the 2019 season planting season coming soon, it's time to start thinking about crop programs. One very important part of the program is pre-plant herbicides. Why are pre-plant herbicides so critical in corn and soybean production? The biggest reason is the use of pre-plant herbicide tank-mixes. They will be your best and most economic chance at achieving good weed control. It is clear that the use of a pre-herbicide helps by preventing early season weed emergence and competition. It also builds a larger window of application for the post weed control programs used later in season. By understanding the critical time for weed control in corn and soybeans, it ensures effective weed removal and minimizes unnecessary weed control inputs. Potentially, it also minimizes the development of herbicide resistance in weeds. Most importantly, our hope is that the use of pre-herbicides with multiple modes of action, will aid in managing glyphosate resistant weeds. Stop in and see us for all of your crop needs and herbicide options. We look forward to meeting with you and creating a successful planting season ahead!
