The article offers information on the worst weeds in soybeans in Midwestern fields, including common waterhemp, giant ragweed and marestail or horseweed. It also discusses the challenges in weed control, such as glyphosate resistance concerns for common waterhemp control and managing other annual weeds. Strategies for weed control are offered, including the use of a preemergence herbicide with soil residual chemistry for lambsquarters, waterhemp and ragweed control.
