Matt Foster, FMC, attended the Ag Media Summit InfoExpo to talk to ag editors about pre-plant weed control options. This summer’s weather has been brutal for field control of weeds and he says that growers are looking for options.
Matt says that although a good pre-plant program is not a farmer’s “salvation” it is a good tool in their toolbox. He says it’s really a no-till problem since some of the resistant weeds love the no-till environment. He says that farmers may also want to consider a fall application of a pre-emerge like Authority to have a wider planting window in the spring.
