Integrated weed management

You can’t kill weeds with one big chemical hammer. The more strategies you have, if one fails, you still have other little hammers pounding away.

Soybean seeding rates

Soybean seeding rates can be reduced without significantly impacting yield. Cut the number of seeds per acre, and save money too.

Developing a weed battle plan

This is a good time to think about your weed control strategy. If you had weeds still standing this year, develop a plan for next year.

Steel deals - disc rippers

Disc rippers are a mainstay of fall tillage. If you’re looking for a used one, you might have to really search because they’re in short supply.
