Early-season and residual weed control

Early-season and residual weed control in XTEND and ENLIST E3 soybean fields

June 18, 2020
New soybean production technologies boast residual weed control properties to help you manage weeds. With Roundup Ready® 2 Xtend’s cropping system, you can now use a residual herbicide containing the active ingredient Dicamba. With a 10- to 14-day soil residual activity (depending on the quantity applied), this herbicide has an earlier application window, allowing to reduce weed emergence and keep the field clean even longer. Such early weed control results in a significantly increased yield potential. This strategy can also be used with Xtend soybeans.
