Sponsored: Enlist One™ Herbicide and Residual Help Missouri Farmer Flatten Weeds
Shane Baxter’s initial reaction after spraying Enlist One™ herbicide was that it stayed on target and began working on weeds quickly.
“Enlist One does a good job on weeds,” Baxter says. “They were drooping within an hour or so of application.”
Baxter and his father, Danny, are growing 200 acres of Enlist E3™ soybeans for seed production on his Chillicothe, Missouri, farm. He’s looking at the Enlist™ weed control system as a way to handle glyphosate-resistant weeds, such as waterhemp and marestail.
“Waterhemp can cause problems even if you’re starting out with a clean field,” Baxter says. “Enlist One herbicide allowed us to tank-mix a residual to provide better control of waterhemp.”
He says Enlist One stayed on target during and after application. “I haven’t noticed any drift even on the field edges,” he adds.
Baxter reports he entered this year with relatively clean fields after applying herbicide last fall. About half his acres include a ryegrass cover crop, which helped limit broadleaf weed emergence this spring.
“We’re using more no-till production along with cover crops to help with weed control,” he says. “That plus Enlist One herbicide and a residual seem to be doing a good job holding down our most difficult weeds.”
Unlike many areas of the Midwest, the Baxters were able to plant into fairly dry soils this spring. Unfortunately, they could use some rain now. He’s keeping a close eye on his Enlist E3 soybean acres to gauge when another postemergence application may be effective.
