Herbicide-resistant weeds are top threats to corn and soybean yield potential. Jeff Moon, market development specialist with Corteva Agriscience, has insights on the state of resistant weeds and herbicide options. Moon works with retailers and territory managers with Corteva Agriscience in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Read the Q&A below for Moon’s advice to control resistant weeds this season.
If you’re looking for a multiproduct approach in corn, one of the best ways to control resistant weeds is to use SureStart® II herbicide or Resicore® herbicide pre- or postemergence. I’ve seen farmers have success putting Surpass® NXT herbicide or Keystone® NXT herbicide down first and then using SureStart II or Resicore over the top on the second pass to control remaining weeds and add a residual layer. This is a great one-two punch to get corn to canopy.
Talk with your retailer to learn more about corn herbicides from Corteva that can help you control herbicide-resistant weeds.
