Farmers from all over the country are talking about the excellent results they've had from spraying early. By applying XtendiMax herbicide at or before planting, you'll be able to control 335+ weed species when used with XtendFlex soybeans.* Additionally, spraying early may reduce the need for future herbicide applications later in the year.
Don't just take our word for it. Hear from Illinois farmer Cory Utterback on his results with spraying early.
Start with an appropriate burndown herbicide at labeled rate or tillage, then apply XtendiMax herbicide before or at planting with a residual with at least two modes of action.
Make a POST application when weeds are less than four inches tall and within 30 days of planting your soybeans. To qualify for the Spray Early Weed Control Guarantee, this post pass will need to include Warrant® Herbicide or Warrant Ultra Herbicide, + Roundup PowerMAX® herbicide or Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide and a glufosinate.
Because of your early season commitment to starting clean, now you can enjoy your soybeans yield potential and strong weed control.

Combined, these options offer over seven weeks of critical early season coverage.
We're confident that spraying early can give you the control you need to see success in your soybean fields. However, if you follow all program requirements and still experience less than commercially acceptable performance on labeled weeds, Bayer will pay up to $26/acre to assist on additional application.1

1 Start Clean - If a farmer experiences less than commercially acceptable performance on labeled weeds2 within 21 days after the PRE/At Planting application while following all program requirements, Bayer will pay up to $26/acre or up to $18/acre or up to $15/acre pending the herbicide program used when Warrant® or Warrant™ Ultra is not included for broadleaf weeds per season per grower, to assist in a follow-up application on the affected acres (only if respray occurs to manage an additional flush of weeds). Stay Clean - If a farmer experiences less than commercially acceptable performance on labeled weeds2 within 30 days after the post-emergence application while following all program requirements, Bayer will pay up to $26/acre per season per grower (up to $18/acre for broadleaf weeds and grasses pending herbicide program used or up to $15/A for broadleaf weeds and grasses when a glufosinate herbicide is substituted for a labeled PPO-Inhibiting herbicide to assist in a follow-up application on the affected acres (only if respray occurs to manage an additional flush of weeds).
