Agronomy Tip: Keep Fields Clean Through Harvest

Sam Knott, Director of Central US Crops for Atticus says post-applied herbicides can be key to keep weeds at bay and keep fields clean all through harvest.

“As we get into the later applications of the summer, we encourage farmers to have conversations with their ag input suppliers about the appropriate products to use,” Knott says.

When the growth stage of crops is past the recommended application timing for herbicides, Knott recommends moving into a conversation around fungicides.

“We know that growers can increase the return on investment for every bushel they produce with a preventative fungicide,” Knott says. “Even if a farmer planted early, late or if they’re in a wet or dry season, they can use any of the fungicide products that are on the market today with multiple modes of action for consistency.”
