6 Tips for Postemergence Application of Pre-Emergence Corn Herbicides

May 2013
Corn & Soybean Digest Exclusive Insight;5/14/2013, p1
The article provides advice for maize growers in the U.S. on how to apply pre-emergence herbicides to emerged corn crops when the planting season becomes shorter because of the early onset of rainy weather. It informs them that several pre-emergence herbicide brands such as Degree, Degree Xtra, and Bullet could be applied to corn crops that are up to six inches tall using a 28% Urea-Ammonia Nitrate (UAN) solution as a spray carrier when air temperatures are less than 85 ° Fahrenheit.

    Volunteer potato is a perennial weed that is difficult to control in crop rotations. Field studies were conducted near Paterson, WA, in 2001 and 2002 to evaluate the control of volunteer potato with carfentrazone-ethyl and dicamba in field corn. When potatoes were not controlled corn yield was...
