From my experience, it's very important to follow the application requirements — wind speed and temperature both need to be within the required ranges.

With the dicamba, we also get about 14 days of residual control from that application.

Since the last herbicide applications, the beans were able to canopy before any more weeds came through. Beans grew nicely, filled out nicely, branched nicely and the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System provided some extra residual to help the beans get through canopy before weeds became a problem.

We were able to manage the hard-to-get weeds such as waterhemp and marestail much better. We had excellent control.

I have not seen any weed problems in our Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybean fields this year. We had excellent control.

There is some tough weed pressure from marestail, waterhemp &lambsquarters, and I can see a big difference in our fields that were on the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System compared to the ones that were not.
