White Breast Creek By: 04/19/2013 @ 10:13am

Under the water going over the road is a bridge. We go fishing in this creek and usually have to walk down the bank by the bridge about 15 or 20 feet to get to the water. Lots of fields underwater and several…

Bradley says a clean-slate program may still involve an early burndown herbicide. But you need to include another preplant or preemergence herbicide with a different mechanism of action, possibly one with…

4. Cover the ground. Cultural practices like narrow-row soybeans and fall or spring cover crops can provide free weed control. Narrow-row or drilled soybeans will form a complete soil canopy much quicker than…

3. Be diverse. Use every tool in your weed-control toolbox -- chemistry, tillage, timing, and cropping programs -- says Bradley. Crop rotation (such as corn and soybeans) should discourage development of weed…

Normally, you would expect corn's canopy to control late-emerging waterhemp. "I've been seeing more fields where there are small waterhemp plants in corn with viable seed at harvest," he says. "When…

Bradley says we don't know everything cover crops do to suppress weeds, but they do suppress weeds. Rye or some other crop seeded after harvest will cover the ground into spring. It will check weed…

5. Employ multiple weapons. Glyphosate was good until the weeds figured it out. "Use an effective preemergence residual herbicide," says Bradley. "The post-only program is unwinnable for the long term." The…

By: 12/31/1969 @ 11:00pm

For later postglyphosate applications, consider a tankmix of an overlapping residual product that will continue to suppress late-emerging weeds. An overlapping residual will better control glyphosate-resistant…

6. Don't skimp. Bradley says it's usually a mistake to reduce herbicide rates. Incomplete control can add to the resistant-weed seed bank. Apply herbicide on the recommended weed size, typically 4…

"You can't nickel-and-dime this anymore," he says. "If you find a program that works at getting you ahead of the weeds before planting, use it. The problem is, if you have to come back in the growing…

7. Reduce weed seeds. "All of our focus should be on reducing the amount of weed seed at harvest," says Bradley. "We can do it; we just have to use all of the tools." Some Southern farmers have reverted to…

Farmers are holding their own with waterhemp, Bradley says. "In Missouri, more preplant residual products are being used," he says. However, a survey of 1,300 soybean growers in 22 states shows growers who…

The 2,4-D- and glyphosate-tolerant Enlist Weed Control System from Dow AgroSciences is coming for corn in 2014 and soybeans in 2015. Monsanto and BASF plan to launch dicamba-tolerant soybeans in 2014 under the…
