When spring comes, weeds begin their annual job of working to mess up everything from planting through to harvest. While you likely know which weeds will potentially give your customers fits, now’s a good time for a refresher course in how best to control them.
Finding a solution starts with understanding the problem. Here are some key characteristics of three of today’s herbicide-resistant driver weeds that will almost certainly cause trouble in Midwestern soybean fields this spring:
It is best to battle these weeds using herbicides with unique modes of action, flexible application timing and lasting residual control. One herbicide that meets these criteria for success is Trivence® herbicide from Corteva Agriscience.
Trivence offers three unique modes of action to: stunt seedling growth; bind to weed proteins to stop energy production in the plant; and contact control by burning plant tissues. It adds up to residual control that lasts up to six weeks after application.
When bad weather causes setbacks, Trivence provides a flexible application window — from preplant up to three days after planting — giving applicators more opportunities to spray. It can even be used as a burndown herbicide to wipe out marestail plants that survived the winter. Talk to your customers about Trivence this spring.
