“We got spoiled when glyphosate controlled everything. We could skip the ‘pre-s’ and get by, but those days are over.” — Bob Hartzler, Iowa State University Extension weed specialist Click here to learn more.
Control a broad spectrum of weeds and grasses with SureStart® II herbicide
Weed to Watch
Make scouting for marestail part of a routine. It can germinate year-round and is a high-anxiety weed across the Corn Belt.
By Luke Peters, corn herbicides product manager, Dow AgroSciences
Early season weed competition can steal moisture and essential nutrients from developing crops, which can significantly reduce yield potential. Timely herbicide applications are critical to control weeds when they are small and before they compete with crops.
As a result, growers need a plan that offers flexibility. That’s why they choose SureStart® II herbicide for flexible application options to fit their busy schedules and help overcome unexpected weather delays, such as untimely rain.
SureStart II can be applied from preplant to early postemergence, up to 11-inch-tall corn, with residual control that protects against emerging weeds for up to six weeks. Effective residual control provides a wide window for postemergence herbicide applications for control later in the season.
It also controls more than 60 broadleaf weeds and grasses, including difficult-to-control and herbicide-resistant species such as waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and giant ragweed.
We can’t go back in time, but this spring, we can use time more wisely. To learn more about the application flexibility of SureStart II, visit GetMoreTime.com.
