If you have volunteer alfalfa in your corn fields, you’re not alone. There are several products that can control it. We’ve had some growers in the area use Resolve Q at a 1.25 oz rate successfully. Don’t forget to add crop oil to the mix as well.

When mixing soybean herbicides, the order is very important. Usually the mixtures containing corn killer, Enlist and Flexstar products can be tough if not put in the proper order. Precision Labs has a great app to double check your order. The two most important rules for all spray mixes are to have the sprayer at least 75% full of water so you have a good buffer for all the chemicals and never put two products into the inductor at the same time.

This weekend, we found spider mites moving in from the edges in a couple of fields, so keep an eye on your lower leaves when out scouting. Spider mites will start along field edges and can move into the field very quickly, especially when it’s hot and the plants are stressed. Make sure to check for them where your wheat has turned. The mites will be along the midrib on the underside of the leaf. If you see some yellowing on the lower leaves, flip them over and see if there are any little things running around in those yellow spots. If so, it is probably a mite infestation. Controlling them quickly is key to prevent them from spreading up the plant and eventually killing it.

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.

Mike Bates

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.

I had some Canada thistle and small trees and brush that were coming through in my pasture. Using GrazonNext HL at 32 oz and Remedy Ultra at 16 oz took care of the thistle and brush. Some farmers are making the switch to GrazonNext HL with the new DuraCor at 16 oz and having good luck too.

Be aware of tank mixing any type of Flexstar products with grass herbicides because of the antagonism between them. Either spray separately or use higher rates of the grass herbicide. If you are spraying separately, spray the grass herbicide first.

Bean spraying is starting in our area. Be sure to check your rotation restrictions and keep in mind the dry weather when applying Flexstar or generics.

John Scheibel

When spraying this next post-emerge pass, you should consider the drier weather and upcoming forecast to make the decision on whether to add the Warrant or Outlook to the tank or skip this pass. If you plan to make another application in the next 14 days and don’t see rain in the forecast, it might be ok to leave your residual out until the next pass. If we don’t get rain, it will not get activated and will not do anything for you until the next rain.

Soybeans in our area are under stress due to dry conditions. When you are spraying your post herbicide, adding in a product such as MegaGro at this time will improve plant health. It will also help increase nutrient uptake and root mass. Use at 2 oz per acre in your tank mix.

Knowing what adjuvants to include when spraying in high temperature conditions is important to minimize crop response and maximize weed control. When tank-mixing glyphosate, Group 15’s, insecticides, or micronutrients, your spray solution will contain more oil. You may want to lower your crop oil rate based off what else is in the tank.

Don’t forget the Group 15 residual on your soybean post. Soybeans won’t canopy for some time now, so give yourself some extra residual while you’re making the pass.

Jared Steffensmeier

Before spraying your post herbicides, make sure you’re diligently scouting. There could be a weed or insect that would not be controlled with your planned program, and a simple switch could save you a bunch of bushels and a re-spray trip.

Due to the spring growing conditions, there isn’t much grass pressure out there right now. However, with the recent rain, it will come. We still recommend a grass herbicide on your wheat and barley acres. Also, with this spring’s growing conditions, yellow flashing your crop is a concern. We’ve found that a 16.4 oz rate of Axial Star is a good grass killer and has been very easy on the crop.

With the stress we are seeing in the corn and alfalfa, farmers are turning to products like MegaGro and WeatherKing (both at 2 oz/ac) to help relieve the stress.

It’s a good idea to start checking your winter wheat fields for head emergence and 10-15% flowering. This is the perfect time to protect your crop from rust and head scab. One of the best products to use is Prosaro at a rate of 6.5 oz/acre.

If you are planting any kind of silage corn, try some Ryzup SmartGrass on some acres going forward. It has proven to increase tonnage by elongating leaves and making that corn plant taller.

With the hot and dry conditions we have been having, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for grasshoppers as they can become an issue. Look for pressure on field borders especially if the field borders a hay field that you plan on cutting soon.

2nd round of chem fallow is happening along Hwy 2. I see most guys are adding 2,4-D or dicamba to their glyphosate package. Try adding 1/2 to 1 oz of Aim EC to that mix as we’ve seen a nice increase in China lettuce and corn gromwell efficacy.
