Field scouting reports indicate that a wet winter and spring could mean intense weed pressures in corn and soybean fields in the coming weeks. Combined with a sharp uptick in the number of reports about increasing weed resistance, corn and soybean growers will need to be aggressive with their post-emergence weed control strategies in order to optimize yields and profitability.
Bob Hooten, technical sales manager with FMC Corporation and an expert on weed and insect control in corn and soybeans, shared how growers can control emerging weeds.
"We have had considerable wet conditions across some of the Midwest," Hooten explains. "Most of the growers are going to be facing a lot of weeds that will start emerging, popping up along with the crop. Growers will need a little extra kick to go after the morningglories, waterhemp, lambsquarters, velvet leaf and nightshade. Cadet will be a good addition to that glyphosate tank."
