Operation: Clean Fields is a retailer-exclusive website designed to help retailers learn more about soybean topics that matter to them and their customers. Throughout the year, retailers have sent in their own questions about soybean herbicides and field experts have answered several online.
Michigan retailer Chad submitted the following question to Operation: Clean Fields and will receive a $250 gift card as a reward. Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, market development specialist Kent Bennis has the answer.
Q: When layering a preemergence program on soybeans, what is the best method to follow it with postemergence?
A: Thank you for your question, Chad. DuPont™ EverpreX™ herbicide is an excellent postemergence herbicide to follow a layered preemergence program. We recommend applying EverpreX at the second to third trifoliate stage in 15-inch or narrower soybean rows. For 30-inch rows, we recommend targeting the fourth to fifth trifoliate stage for residual applications of EverpreX. This application timing allows EverpreX to be absorbed into the soil earlier, which opens the window for additional post applications.
