If there’s one thing corn farmers know, it’s that weeds are much easier to control before they emerge or when they’re small. Once those weeds mature, they become significantly more difficult to take down. So understanding when those troublesome weeds are likely to emerge in your cornfields can help you tailor your herbicide applications to control them before they have a chance to rob your corn yield.
This weed emergence timeline features photos of nine herbicide-resistant species commonly found in Midwest cornfields, when they’re likely to emerge and how long their emergence period typically lasts. Download the graphic for a handy reminder you can refer to in the field.
Here’s a quick rundown of the weeds and information on the graphic:
Herbicide-resistant populations of all these weeds have been found in the Midwest, and they’re all capable of negatively impacting corn yield. We recommend using a program approach with multiple modes of action and residual activity to control these weeds.
