Resistance Management

 

Herbicide Resistance: Are you at risk?

Herbicide resistance is an issue that every grower faces. How you choose to manage resistance today impacts your crops now as well as in the future.

 

Making use of the LibertyLink soybean system is just one of the tools you can have in your belt to manage resistance.

What strategies can you employ to minimize resistance?

Weeds thrive on routine. The general rule? Rotate.

 

Rotate crops. Certain weeds are more prevalent in certain crops. By rotating the crop, you vary the weed population, along with the herbicide class used to control these weeds.

 

Rotate herbicides. Constant use of one herbicide puts selection pressure on a particular weed population, increasing the likelihood for resistance development.

 

Rotate modes of action. As appealing as some yields may have been with a certain mode of action, repeated use of this mode of action gives resistant weeds the opportunity to set seed, multiply and spread.

How does the LibertyLink soybean system contribute to resistance management?

The LibertyLink soybean system utilizes a unique Group 10 mode of action that provides broad-spectrum control of weeds. Add the LibertyLink soybean system to your rotation practices provides you with another effective herbicide that provides a novel mode of action.

What crops can I grow the year after seeding LibertyLink soybeans?

Any crops. Due to the rapid breakdown of Liberty products in soils, the system creates no cropping restrictions for the next year.
