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 additional weed management strategies, broader program availability in new geographies 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 postemergence 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 postemergence application on the affected acres (only if respray occurs).

Option 1: Preferred Weed Management Strategy**

1 Start Clean.

  • Use appropriate burndown herbicide at labeled rate or tillage.

2 Apply a Pre-Emergence
Application.

  • Use a qualifying residual product (Group 3, 14 or 15) at the labeled rate within two weeks before planting or prior to soybean emergence to control broadleaf weeds.
    • 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.

3 Apply a Postemergence
Application.

  • Make POST application when weeds are less than 4 inches and within 30 days after planting soybeans (recommended application between 20-30 days after planting). Application should include Warrant® Herbicide (3-4 pts) or Warrant® Ultra Herbicide2 (50 fl oz.) and Roundup PowerMAX® herbicide or  Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide (32 fl oz.) and XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology (22 fl oz.) and an approved DRA at labeled rate.

NEW - Option 2: Alternative Weed Management Strategy**

1 Start Clean.

  • Use appropriate burndown herbicide at labeled rate or tillage.

2 Apply a Pre-Emergence
Application.

  • Make application of XtendiMax herbicide with VaporGrip Technology (22-44 fl oz.) and  Warrant Herbicide (3-4pts) and metribuzin3 at planting or as soon as possible after planting but prior to soybean emergence. Include Roundup PowerMAX herbicide or Roundup WeatherMAX herbicide in minimum-till and no-till situations.
    • Recommend adding a Group 2 herbicide4 in places where there are dense populations of large-seeded broadleaf weeds.

3 Apply a Postemergence
Application.

  • Make POST application when weeds are less than 4 inches and within 21 days after soybean emergence (recommended application 14-21 days after emergence). Application should include Roundup PowerMAX herbicide or Roundup WeatherMAX herbicide (32 fl oz.) and Warrant Ultra Herbicide (50 fl oz).2

Option 3: Southern region Weed Management Strategy***

1 Start Clean.

  • Use appropriate burndown herbicide at labeled rate or tillage.

2 Apply a Pre-Emergence
Application.

  • Make PRE application within five days before planting through emergence. Application should include XtendiMax herbicide with VaporGrip Technology, (22 fl oz.) and Warrant Ultra herbicide (50 fl oz.)* and an approved DRA at labeled rate.
    • Substitution for Warrant Ultra Herbicide can include a combination of Group 14 and Group 15 residual herbicides.2
    • Recommend adding metribuzin in areas with Amaranthus species or PPO-resistant species.2

3 Apply a Postemergence
Application.

  • Make POST application when weeds are less than 4 inches and within 30 days after planting soybeans (recommended application 20-30 days after planting). Application should include Warrant Herbicide (3-4 pts) and a Roundup® brand agricultural herbicide (32 fl oz.) and XtendiMax herbicide with VaporGrip Technology (22 fl oz.) and an approved DRA at labeled rate.
    • Recommend adding clethodim/fusilade in postemergence application in cases of resistant or tough-to-control grasses.

4 For >20” Row Spacing,
Apply a 2nd Postemergence
Application.

  • Make 2nd POST application when weeds are less than 4 inches and within 45 days after planting or prior to R1. Application should include a Roundupbrand agricultural herbicide (32 fl oz.) and XtendiMax herbicide with VaporGrip Technology (22 fl oz.) and an approved DRA at labeled rate or Roundup brand agricultural herbicide (32 fl oz.) and labeled PPO-inhibiting herbicide.
