Effective Weed Control is About Weed Management
The key to harvesting the highest yield from every field is to incorporate a diversified weed management program. Such a program would include a residual herbicide along with Roundup® herbicide for postemergence control.
Whether they are applied in the fall as part of a burndown program or in the spring, preemergence herbicides with long residual activity serve to prevent weeds from robbing crops of vital nutrients, sunlight and water, thereby threatening yield. In addition, fields that are weed free tend to dry and warm up more quickly, allowing growers to plant earlier.
