Early brome and rescue grass control in wheat

When there’s a lack of rainfall, there’s limited moisture available for development of a strong wheat stand. Winter wheat fighting for available moisture is competing against yield-robbing weeds, making it extremely important to rid crops of early-season brome grasses.

“Parts of the United States where winter wheat is grown are experiencing a lack of rain, so early brome competition for moisture is something growers need to consider,” said Kyle Renninger, marketing manager, U.S. Herbicides, Arysta LifeScience North America. By managing early bromes and other weeds, early-season winter wheat competition can be controlled, leading to healthier plants and maximized yields.

Early-season brome species may significantly reduce winter wheat yields if not controlled early in the growing season. Independent studies show if downy brome emerges within 14 days of a winter wheat crop, it can reduce yields by 10 to 20 percent.

Pre-Pare with glyphosate is the Arysta LifeScience product that controls existing and early-emerging bromes for up to three weeks. Reducing the overall brome population helps winter wheat establish a strong stand, leading to significant yields.

“With the increasing infestations of rescue grass, it is crucial to adopt a two-pass approach to gain season-long control in winter wheat,” Renninger added. “A first-pass, pre-emergent treatment will help growers gain early control on rescue grass and other hard-to-kill grasses.”

If necessary, growers can make a second-pass, post-emergent herbicide application looking for season-long control.
