Helpful Tips to Prepare for the 2022 Weed Management Fight
A clean soybean field early in the season.
Every growing season brings its own unique challenges. But finding an effective resistance management program doesn’t have to be difficult. Knowing what’s happening in your field can give you an advantage in the upcoming season. Scouting for weeds throughout the season and keeping thorough records about any breaks in your herbicide coverage will give you an idea of how to plan for next year.
Choosing a season-long weed management program with overlapping residuals can help alleviate the stress of weeds emerging throughout the growing season. An effective weed management plan will help prevent weeds from stealing essential nutrients, sunlight and water from your crops. And choosing a herbicide with multiple effective sites of action can help prevent the spread of resistant weeds.
Weed Management Techniques
As we begin preparing for the 2022 season, start now by adding Tavium® Plus VaporGrip® Technology herbicide to your weed management plan for dicamba-tolerant soybeans. Tavium is most effective when used as part of a season-long weed management program along with cultural practices, such as narrow row spacing and increased plant populations. And using a burndown application like Gramoxone® SL 3.0 herbicide before planting can help reduce pressure from weeds that have overwintered.
Using Tavium as an early post-emergence application following an effective preemergence herbicide can provide a consistent 2 bu/A yield increase compared to dicamba alone in soybeans.1
