A new mindset and approach to pigweed

The only way to effectively stop resistant pigweed—and prevent a future full of challenges and lost yields—is by taking a different approach. It takes changing our mindsets from managing weeds to eradicating them. Below is the latest news on how farmers, researchers and industry leaders are using that mindset to win the fight.

What is Operation Weed Eradication

Planning your seed trait & chemical program for the 2022 growing season

Pigweed species like Palmer amaranth and waterhemp have proven to be challenging to manage but layering effective residual herbicides can be an effective strategy that could provide season-long control. Adding residual herbicides to your weed control program can have a profitable impact on  your bottom line. 

The many benefits of a fall burndown

You might be done harvesting, but you’ll still need a pigweed control plan this fall. Lead with an eradication mindset to build upon your weed control successes you had this season, especially if you farm in warmer climate where pigweed species are likely a year-round problem.

Cleaning out your combine keeps weed seed from spreading across fields.

Control Weeds Next Season with Consistent Spray Pattern

Weed resistance is changing more than just which herbicides to use. The need for a consistent spray pattern to ensure complete coverage is vital. Using optimized spray control systems gives applicators more accurate droplet size and coverage and more precise and consistent spray patterns, helping to achieve the ideal application rate for maximum weed control.

Automatic Boom Height Systems for Ensured Consistency

 

Consistent boom height is important to combating weed resistance for three reasons: to reduce uneven spray dispersion if the boom is too low, to reduce spray droplet drift if the boom is too high and to reduce damage to the boom or crop if the boom is on uneven terrain.
