The June Better Farming video dealt with weed control. With soybeans getting planted late this year, Purdue weed specialist Bill Johnson says growers who are switching to a post emergence program, should attack the weeds while they are small, “Make sure you spray the post emerge treatments when the weeds are small. If you think you may have glyphosate resistance and glyphosate is your post emergence choice, then add another herbicide to enhance the activity on that weed.” He added that, if you have a field with Palmer Amaranth, you may want to add an additional residual herbicide.
He also advises you check your fields often, “Take frequent looks at these fields to see what weeds they have and how big they are getting so they can do their weed control treatments in a timely manner.”
The Better Farming video is on-line at www.hoosieragtoday.com and is made possible by the Indiana soybean checkoff.
