The herbicide can be applied in the spring up to seven days before planting corn and up to three days after planting soybeans. It can also be applied in the fall. Fierce provides residual control of weeds, including glyphosate-, ALS- and triazine-resistant Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, common lambsquarters, velvetleaf, dandelion, marestail, annual nightshades, pigweed species and annual grasses.
