Fall Herbicide Application II

TEMPERATURE, TIMING AND EFFICACY

  • For effective application, air temperature must be adequate for post-harvest burn down. Do you know what that ideal temperature is?
  • Fall application with Harvest Land helps you maximize manpower so you’re ready to roll in spring 2021. 
  • Earlier in the fall is where your residual is going to provide the best control. 

Kyle Pulley, YieldPro Specialist, and Drake Copeland, Technical Support Manager for FMC, have a terrific discussion regarding temperature, timing and efficacy of fall herbicide application.

Fall Herbicide: Part 1

We often get this question:
Does fall burndown replace a spring herbicide application?
  • Take care of winter annuals in the fall, when they’re at their most susceptible time in the life cycle. This eliminates residue in the field, allowing your fields to dry out quicker, getting you in the field sooner in spring 2021.
  • Do you know what pests lay eggs in winter annual foliage? These larvae go on to chew on emerging crop as it grows.
  • It is so important to kill driver weeds, such as marestail, in the fall while they’re in the rosette stage so you don’t have to double spray them to achieve control in the spring.

Watch as Mike Shrack, YieldPro Specialist, visits with Drake Copeland, FMC Technical Service Manager, about the agronomic and efficiency benefits of a fall burndown.

Why YieldPro Now?

YieldPro is so much more than a soil sampling service.
  • ​We believe in allocating scarce resources through the 4 Rs: 

Right fertilizer source at the
Right rate, at the
Right time and in the
Right place

4Rs

  • Properly managed fertilizers support cropping systems that provide economic, social and environmental benefits. On the other hand, poorly managed nutrient applications can decrease profitability and increase nutrient losses, potentially degrading water and air.

  • Yield data coupled with soil analysis pack a powerful punch when it comes to recommendations for your individual fields. 

Watch as Seth Lawyer, YieldPro Specialist, visits with Curt Naylor, YieldPro manager, about the reasons why the YieldPro program is valuable as ever.

Harvest Loss Considerations

Let’s Talk Harvest Loss and Prioritizing Harvest 2020

  • NOW is the time to prioritize fields and look for signs and symptomologies arising.
  • Physoderma has the ability to reduce stalk integrity – do you know how to identify it? Yellowing up the mid-rib often leads to crown rot – take a look at the symptoms in this short video.
  • A push test is an easy way to prioritize fields – don’t just harvest in the order you planted.

Here’s a question: What’s the economic threshold of what is coming out the back of your combine?
