E3 soybeans


Recommended Posts

First year planting E3 enlist soybeans. Any recomendations on spray? Mainly controlling crab grass, and light broadleafs. I would like something with some residual if possible. Beans are post at 4" tall and some grass and weeds are just starting to surface here and there. 

Roundup, liberty, enlist. Lots of reading to be had but one can just get deeper in. 

Quart of roundup used to be thrown in because it was cheap. 

Thinking the neighbor is using a concoction of roundup, enlist, and Ams. Possible one other thing

Roundup ain't cheap this year.

If you happen to have drift from normal 24D it won't kill them...

Read between the lines.

Avoid tank mixing more than two active chemicals. There is too much chance of a chemical reaction in your tank!

Oh yah. Another neighbor did some major damage to his sprayer mixing enlist. it ruined his nozzles. I am thinking he mixed the two too fast. He said now he let's one adgitate a while then adds the other. Yah that would suck. Sprayer nozzles even on my sprayer wouldn't be cheap over a whoops.

Doing a jar test with all your tank mix enlist partners to see if it will turn into cottage cheese will give you peace of mind.

Your water quality has major effects on herbicide efficiency, that is often overlooked.

Liberty is a top killer as glyphosate will kill roots and top growth, had grasses regrow late season here in past seasons with liberty.

If your doing your own consider a two pass game plan glyphosate, 1.5 quarts, and 17# AMS/100 gallon of water.

Glyphosate still is a great herbicide and will get all grasses and most small seed broadleaf weeds.

Then come back with the enlist to clean up any rouge weeds that are resistant.

Dual II Magnum works real well as a post residual on grass and small seed broadleaf weeds that show up later!

Roundup and 24d/enlist are good together.

Spray liberty separately.

There are many chemical interactions besides cottage cheese but I've made that too. Liberty and Roundup, command and Roundup, stam and insecticides (must be weeks apart),  dicamba and Roundup (increases volatility),  grass and broadleaf herbicides. There are many antagonism among chemicals but few synergies.

Thx-Ace

Roundup and Synchrony if you don’t have resistant weeds. Roundup and Enlist if you do.

Yes, AMS as well. Didn’t write it as it should be a given if using glyphosate. Actually using Cyndar this year instead. Seems to work as well as AMS

Helena adujvent, Smoke seems to be a very good AMS replacement too?

Helena, Grounded to hold the pre's in place, have no new young weeds, just nice beans.

Used Efficax this year as a adjuvant to increase efficacy of the pre’s. Seems to be working

Power of the pre'$, next year will be looking for that unusually warm spell to burn down and then apply the 3 pre'$ right at planting..

Have to love a clean field at harvest!

 

I apply my pre’s and burndown in one pass. Corn and beans

Thanks guys. My guy fixed me up with roundup, enlist, and dual. A surfactant and liquid Ams. All generics of coarse. 

This will be a first for liquid AMS for me. I tend to just stick with what I know. Always a pita but I mix dry and always went with like 15-17 lbs. 

How does one achieve that with liquid and isn't it alot more pricey? In my case it's what he had, so take it or leave it. since he gave me a good price on everything else I went all in.

Liquid AMS is a little more expensive than dry. We used a lot more AMS when we sprayed Liberty, so we used dry to keep the cost down. Roundup doesn’t require nearly as high of a rate, so the cost increase isn’t that much. The liquid is much easier to load as opposed to going through pallet after pallet of bags.

Best thing to do is test hardness of water. The harder the water the less effective the chemicals are or takes longer for them to act. When I started buying water from the local village their water was super soft and couldn’t believe how fast I saw activity on the weeds.
