Maximize Weed Control. Spray Early.

2020 Spray Early With Confidence Program


Establishing a weed management program is essential to maintaining farm productivity and reducing weed populations. And with the 2020 Spray Early With Confidence Program, you can get the most out of early season applications. Now with an additional weed management strategy option and a broadleaf and grass control guarantee.

We're confident that spraying early can give you the control you need to see success in your soybean fields. However, if you experience less than commercially acceptable performance on labeled weeds* within 30 days after the post-emergence application while following all program requirements stated below, Bayer will pay up to $15/acre (up to $10/acre for broadleaf weeds and up to $5/acre for grasses) to assist in a second post-emergence application on the affected acres (only if respray occurs).

    • Recommend adding metribuzin in areas with species or PPO-resistant species.
    • Recommend adding XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology, a restricted use pesticide, in minimum-till and no-till situations.
