Part 3: Multiple Modes of Action Control Tough Weeds

November 17, 2016

Following results from Kansas and Nebraska, and Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, growers in Southern Illinois and Missouri share their evaluations of Acuron® and Acuron Flexi corn herbicides. In these areas, waterhemp was the biggest concern. Growers in Southern Illinois also named morningglory, pigweed and marestail as problematic weeds.

Here’s a recap:

New Florence, Missouri: Kent Hall’s field had a history of waterhemp pressure prior to treatment. Acuron applied at 1.5 qt/A for burndown in early April followed by 1.5 qt/A of Acuron in early June.
