Maximize Weed Control. Spray Early.


Establishing a weed management program is essential to maintaining farm productivity and reducing weed populations. And with the 2019 Spray Early With Confidence Program, you can get the most out of early season applications.

We're confident that spraying early can give you the control you need to see success in your soybean fields. However, if you do experience an additional flush of broadleaf weeds within 30 days of your post-emergence application and after following all program requirements, we're offering $10/acre to assist in a second pass.
