There’s clean. Then there’s Kyber Clean.

Kyber logo

Kyber herbicide is a premium solution in the fight against resistant weeds. This preemergence soybean herbicide boasts three effective modes of action, including a group 15 active ingredient, to create a new level of clean. It delivers the broad-spectrum control of resistant broadleaf and grass weeds that retailers and farmers have been asking for. Kyber offers long-lasting residual activity to control tough weeds, widening the postemergence application window.

Proven and flexible residual weed control

Sonic logo

Sonic® herbicide is proven to deliver long-lasting residual control on a broad spectrum of weeds, using two unique modes of action to attack weeds multiple ways and effectively manage herbicide resistance. Plus, Sonic offers the flexibility to be applied preemergence up to three days postplant.

Easy-to-use pre-mix to fight weed resistance

Surveil logo

Surveil® herbicide delivers farmers the convenience of two resistance-fighting active ingredients in one easy-to-use premix. Plus, Surveil provides a nine-month plant-back rotation to cotton, dry beans, rice or sorghum. So, there’s the option to plant high-value crops next season, even when soybean crops get planted late.

Innovation in spring and fall burndown

Elevore logo

Elevore® herbicide uses a systemic formulation for more thorough burndown control of weeds, including marestail up to 8 inches tall, henbit, and other ALS- and glyphosate-resistant weeds. And with a low use rate of only 1 ounce per acre, Elevore is an excellent fit in reduced- and no-till production systems.

Three Reasons To Add Residual Herbicides

A program approach means starting clean with a burndown, using effective preemergence herbicides with residual activity and applying Enlist® herbicides postemergence. It’s that simple. There are three key benefits.

Flexible Application Windows

Fields will be clean when you’re ready to plant, and weeds will be easier to control for postemergence herbicide applications. It all adds up to longer-lasting control.

Better Field Management

With weeds under control from preplant to well into the season, you’re able to deliver better productivity and increase yield potential.

Take Down the Weeds Threatening Your Yield

Enjoy clean fields and protect your yield potential with these tips for defeating the toughest weeds.

Get the first strike against waterhemp


A preemergence first strike against yield-limiting waterhemp can give soybeans the early season boost needed to reach yield potential. 

A member of the pigweed family, waterhemp has the ability to produce at least 250,000 seeds per plant and is a serious competitor for sun, water and nutrients. 

Identify waterhemp by looking for smooth, hairless and glossy leaves that vary in color from a bright red or pink to emerald green. As a slender plant with multiple branches and long, narrow leaves, the height of waterhemp can range from 4 inches to 12 feet. 

The best strategy to control waterhemp includes aggressive tillage and a program approach using preemergence and postemergence herbicides with multiple modes of action. Soybean growers can use Sonic® herbicide preemergence to control waterhemp into the growing season.

Prevent Palmer amaranth from taking over your fields

Palmer Amaranth

Palmer amaranth is a unique weed species with rapid seed production and a germination pattern that spans the entire growing season. As a result, this highly competitive and aggressive pigweed species can cause significant yield reductions when it emerges before or with the crop.

Given the threat Palmer amaranth poses to yield, the key to mitigating it is early control — before the crop emerges and when the weed is small. Consider the following tips to keep your fields free of Palmer amaranth:

  • Tank-mix residual herbicides with postemergence herbicides to prevent Palmer amaranth from emerging later in the season. 
  • Avoid having to control Palmer amaranth after emergence because there are very few effective postemergence herbicide control options, especially in soybeans.

Take early action against giant ragweed

Giant Ragweed

A summer annual now resistant to multiple herbicide sites of action, including glyphosate and ALS inhibitors, giant ragweed requires a program approach with multiple modes of action to keep it under control.

Consider the following weed control tips:

  • Scout early. Giant ragweed has an early and extended germination period, so begin scouting early in the growing season. Pay close attention to areas in fields with richer soils that have higher levels of organic matter. 
  • Use multiple modes of action. Giant ragweed is extremely competitive and, at full maturity, can reach a height of 8 feet. It is difficult to control with a single pre- or postemergence herbicide application. For best control, growers should use both pre- and postemergence treatments. A burndown herbicide and/or aggressive tillage prior to planting are the most effective ways to eliminate early germinating plants that can outcompete soybeans.

Seek and destroy marestail


The key to defeating maresteail is to treat it early, because if marestail is able to reach heights of 4 inches or more, control becomes even more of a challenge. That’s because in addition to being resistant to many herbicides, the physical structure of marestail, with its many growing points, makes it hard to get the application coverage needed for effective control. 

An effective plan of attack against marestail starts with diligent spring scouting for early identification. Marestail begins its growth cycle as a small rosette between 1 to 4 inches across. While scouting, be sure to look beneath any field debris or plants for sprouting weeds. 

If scouting uncovers marestail, applying a burndown herbicide like Elevore® herbicide will help farmers start out with a clean seedbed. Then, follow that by applying a residual herbicide, such as Sonic® herbicide for an additional layer of early season control. Sonic contains two non-glyphosate modes of action to provide long-lasting residual control and can be applied preemergence up to three days postplant for application flexibility. 

Finally, be sure to continue scouting fields through the spring and midsummer to help determine the best approach to layering residual herbicides. DuPont EverpreX herbicide is an excellent choice for applying over the top of soybeans to prevent weeds from germinating and competing with soybean crops.
