Controlling winter annual broadleaf weeds in wheat
Starane or dicamba products generally do not provide very good mustard control, so wouldn’t be very good choices to help control ALS-resistant mustards.
Many producers like to wait to apply broadleaf herbicides until winter or early spring, for a variety of reasons. This normally works well for control of mustard species, but is less effective for henbit control. Winter annual broadleaves do not generally cause much yield loss if left uncontrolled in the fall. However, these weeds should be sprayed in early spring when they are actively growing, but before they begin to bolt.
Producers who wait too long before making a herbicide application can run into a problem if weather conditions such as high winds or wet weather prevent timely application. If the herbicide application is delayed too long, weeds can become too large to control effectively and yield loss may occur.
