Now that corn spraying is pretty much done, bean spraying will start going here this next week. Remember, even though you might not see the volunteer corn from the road, weed for weed it’s the worst weed out there with the nutrients it pulls. Make sure to have Fusilade or Select in the tank to wipe out this problem. I like Fusilade with the Xtend or Enlist products because it’s a little stronger performance-wise. However, if you’re spraying Liberty first, then I like Clethodim better since it will help with the grass control that Liberty is a little weak on.
Caution on using too much crop oil in this heat. To avoid excess crop response, we’re seeing some guys in the area reducing the crop oil rate by ½ or switching to Non-Ionic. Also, don’t forget to have some antifoam available as we’re hearing of some issues out there.
