This season, the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System updated agronomic recommendations to help farmers get the most out of their early-season applications.
"Early-season weed control is important for optimizing soybean yield potential. Creating a management plan for effectively controlling weeds is one of the most important decisions farmers make," says Neha Rana, Market Development
Manager, Bayer. "It's important that they have a sound recommendation that they can count on for weed control.
"We have three years of data indicating that farmers who follow these three steps will experience effective weed control and increased flexibility," Rana says.
In years like this one, weed control is critically important — and farmers can count on XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology, a restricted use pesticide, to help manage tough-to-control weeds and provide up to 14 days of soil
activity on certain small-seeded broadleaf weeds. The use of a soil residual product in combination with XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology, either pre-plant or at planting, provides an excellent opportunity to maximize herbicide soil residual
"The 3-step Spray Early With Confidence program is always the first recommendation," says Boyd Carey, Regional Agronomy Lead, Bayer, "as it is the most sustainable and reliably effective approach. The good news is that, even in
less than ideal conditions, the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System still works effectively."
Consult your seed dealer for details.
Use an appropriate burndown herbicide at the labeled rate or tillage.
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 help control broadleaf weeds in soybeans.
Apply when weeds are less than 4 inches tall and within 30 days after planting soybeans:
When it comes to weed control, it’s all about strategy.
