Examining soybeans - hands close up

What’s the best way to unlock superior weed control without compromising your annual yield potential? The answer resides in a program approach to weed control. A program approach means starting clean with a burndown, using effective preemergence herbicides with residual activity and applying postemergence herbicides for season-long control.

A program approach that incorporates multiple, effective modes of action provides several benefits over single-pass herbicide programs, including:

  • Reduced seedbank buildup for targeted plants
  • Flexible application windows
  • Enhanced postemergence weed control

Your ability to achieve these beneficial results in 2023 is largely dependent on not only the traits you use but also the herbicide chemistries you choose to apply to your soybean acres. Explore the following products and solutions from Corteva Agriscience to learn how you can help maximize your soybean yield in 2023 and beyond.

The New Standard for Weed Control and Soybean Yield Performance

Looking for a responsible, effective and flexible solution that allows you to control tough and resistant weeds? The Enlist® weed control system covers all these criteria. Planting crops with the Enlist trait allows you to unleash superior weed control throughout your soybean acres. In fact, Enlist E3® soybeans are tolerant to 2,4-D choline, glyphosate and glufosinate. This tolerance makes Enlist herbicides the perfect pairing for Enlist E3 soybeans from burndown through the R1 stage of development.

Enlist One® herbicide — As a straight-goods 2,4-D choline, Enlist One features Colex-D technology, resulting in near-zero volatility and minimized potential for physical drift. Enlist One forms the basis for an exceptional weed control program as it can be easily tank-mixed with glufosinate and other qualified products to eliminate key yield-robbing weeds from the field.

Enlist Duo® herbicide – In addition to featuring the same Colex-D® technology as Enlist One herbicide, Enlist Duo conveniently blends 2,4-D choline and glyphosate to provide two modes of action that land and stay on target for superior weed control.

While you can apply Enlist One and Enlist Duo herbicides through the R1 growth stage for postemergence control of problematic broadleaf weeds, the combination of Enlist One and Liberty® herbicides from BASF gives farmers the best postemergence control available for tough and resistant weeds on Enlist E3 soybean acres.

Kyber® Herbicide: The Premium Preemergence Solution for Soybeans

Kyber® herbicide is a preemergence herbicide that delivers long-lasting residual activity on the most resilient threats to your yield potential. By achieving broad-spectrum control of resistant broadleaf and grass weeds, Kyber herbicide creates a new level of clean for your soybean acres.

“Starting clean and staying clean is our No. 1 rule,” said Kala Pierucki, account relations manager with Ceres Solutions, LLC. “We like to use Kyber upfront because it gives us four to six weeks of residual control to hold weeds back and prevent them from grabbing water and nutrients from soybean plants.”

As a premix that combines three modes of action, Kyber herbicide is the perfect addition to a weed control program approach that includes burndown and postemergence herbicides. That’s because Kyber delivers results that provide unrivaled support for PPO- and ALS-resistant weed control.

“Finding a product that works for resistant weeds and issues that you have on your farm and in your fields can be difficult,” Pierucki said. “In the past, we used three different products to get what we’re getting out of Kyber.”

Other Soybean Herbicides for Residual Control in 2023

Mitigating yield loss due to weed competition can buy invaluable time for soybean crops to develop. Applying the following herbicide products to your soybean acres can prevent weed resistance and maintain residual control of targeted plants as your crops develop:

  • Elevore® herbicide — Powered by Arylex® active, Elevore is tank-mix-compatible with commonly used burndown and residual partners, providing thorough control of broadleaf weeds, including ALS- or glyphosate-resistant species.
  • Trivence® herbicide — Strengthened by three modes of action, Trivence delivers excellent residual performance to preserve the efficacy of existing herbicide options. This preemergence herbicide keeps fields clean well after planting and supports uniform crop emergence.
  • Sonic® herbicide — Proven to perform effectively in various soil types, Sonic is a convenient tank-mix partner that delivers long-lasting residual control when applied in fall, spring or up to three days post-plant before soybean plants emerge.
  • Surveil® herbicide — Surveil offers easy mixing and handling characteristics that enhance the battle against resistant and hard-to-control broadleaf weeds. Applicable for use in preplant applications, Surveil also can be applied before emergence up to three days after planting.
  • EverpreX® herbicide – While EverpreX can be used for preplant or preemergence treatments, it is most used for postemergence applications. Thanks to an easy-to-use formulation compatible with many other soybean herbicides, EverpreX provides residual control of ALS-, PPO- and/or glyphosate-resistant weeds.
