The article offers management tips against pigweed in soybeans through the use of Fierce and Zidua herbicides. It discusses how these herbicides should be utilized, with the former as a pre along with another residual herbicide and the latter to be applied at preplant to pre-emergence of palmer amaranth in soybeans. It also cites the result of research which found that early-season soybean stunting has not resulted in yield loss.
