Discussion Highlights

South Dakota State University study cited that growers can lose up to 3 bushels per acre per day when weeds grow uncontrolled. At $4 corn, that could mean losses of $12 a day or $84 a week per acre.
“Certain areas of the Midwest started with one resistant weed, but now we’re all evolving and have more than one of the real problem resistant weeds in our operation. Those weeds are continuing to develop multiple resistance as we throw additional herbicide tools at them, especially if our programs aren’t diverse enough.”
Dr. Mark Loux

Weed Management Extension Specialist, Ohio State University

Integrated Weed Management Involves a Diverse Range of Methods including:

  • Mechanical
  • Cultural
  • Biological
  • Chemical
Liberty® Herbicide is the only working nonselective herbicide that is effective on tough-to-control grasses and broadleaf weeds.
“Liberty is friendly with a lot of other chemistries and mixes well. There’s no antagonism there. It gives the grower a lot of flexibility.” David Schrock

A two-pass herbicide program is necessary for optimized weed control and premium yields. Panelists dsicussed a zero-tolerance approach to weed control with Corvus® and DiFlexx® DUO Herbicides.
“When I got the chance to use DiFlexx DUO on it, I started with Corvus up front followed by DiFlexx DUO so it was two applications and two trips and literally there was not one giant ragweed left in this 40 acre patch.”
