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.
