EDITOR'S PICKS
 
Crop consultants in Minnesota, Arkansas and North Carolina push into 2018 knowing they'll need rains at the right time to activate herbicides. With tighter reins on dicamba applications, fall-back remedies may not be in the cards.
 
 
"Is a sensitive soybean crop adjacent or neighboring if it is less than 10 feet from the treated field? What about 100 feet from the treated field? What if the sensitive soybean field is one mile from the treated field?"
  
 
“Getting out there at least 30 days before planting opens up your options in terms of chemistry you can useand lets you get good chemistry rotation in your burndown.”
 
 
FOCUS ON THE CORN BELT
  
"Residual control of marestail is essential in RoundupReady and non-GMO soybeans, since there are no postemergence options. And also in Xtend soybeans, if the goal is to use dicamba only in burndown programs, avoid postemergence use."
  
 
When formulating a herbicide plan for this weed, diversify, diversify, diversify. Here's one approach in soybeans, based on a 2-year field trial.
 
  
All kinds of factors are at play -- wind, other crops, temperatures, waterways. Given the high number of dicamba off-site movement complaints in 2017, applicators need to take special care this year. 
  
 
Dicamba offers plenty of flexibility in burndown plans, regardless of the technology you're planting and whether you're going with new formulations or long-standing products.
  
 
FOCUS ON THE SOUTH
 
Timeliness is critical for taking out sprouting pigweed early, especially when going with paraquat. The last thing you want to do is to "bed" live pigweed. 
 
Virginia: Resistant Horseweed Sneaks Up On You - Considerations For 2018
  
Horseweed germination can go on for weeks. That's why the right product and the right timing matter every season. 
 
 
FOCUS ON WHEAT
 
“With herbicide applications, it’s always a balancing act. We obviously want to kill the weeds, but we don’t want to harm our crop." .
 
 
Controlling wild radishes in wheat may be the biggest challenge in 2018.
