Agronomist Nicholas Smeby of Long Prairie, Minnesota, recommends a preemergence herbicide on every acre — corn or soybean. To control troublesome weeds such as lambsquarters, waterhemp and ragweed in soybean fields, Smeby’s Dow AgroSciences sales representative introduced him to Surveil® herbicide. Surveil is a preemergence herbicide that keeps weeds small and easier to control.
“This year Surveil comes premixed and so the applicators really appreciate the simplicity of it,” Smeby says.
Along with easy mixing and handling characterstics, Smeby likes that Surveil features multiple modes of action to manage herbicide resistance.
“The importance of a preemerge herbicide on soybeans and multiple modes of action is very evident in this area because of the problem weeds that we have and the fact that the glyphosate does not control everything anymore,” Smeby says. “We’ve got weeds that are completely resistant to glyphosate, so having the multiple modes of action in Surveil has been a great help.”
