Soybean Farmers: "Spray Early With Confidence" in 2019

It's been said that "the early bird gets the worm." This adage was probably not written about weed management, but when it comes to getting weeds under control, earlier is definitely better.

The Program Is Simple To Use:

The Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System has introduced its 2019 Spray Early With Confidence Program to help soybean farmers start clean and maintain an effective weed resistance management system all season long.1

  1. Start Clean

    Use an appropriate burndown herbicide at the labeled rate or tillage.

  2. Apply A Pre Emergence Residual Herbicide

    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.

  3. Postemergence Application

    Apply when weeds are less than 4 inches tall and within 30 days after planting soybeans:

    • XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology, a restricted use pesticide
    • Roundup PowerMAX® herbicide or Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide
    • Warrant® Herbicide or Warrant Ultra Herbicide
    • An approved DRA

If a farmer experiences an additional flush of broadleaf weeds within 30 days of the postemergence application after following all program requirements stated above, Bayer Crop Science will pay up to $10/acre to assist in a second postemergence application on the affected acres (only if respray occurs).2

The program is new for the 2019 growing season, but farmers across the soybean belt saw firsthand the benefits of spraying early to control weeds in 2018 with the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System.3
