The planting season may start later than many of us would have liked, but Bayer District Sales Manager Mark Haugland says farmers can’t afford to cut corners. That’s especially true for weed control. “Stick with using pre’s and multiple modes-of-action as we go through the spring,” said Haugland. “I predict we’ll see warmer season weeds showing up earlier, but you’ve got to stick to the plan because there is so much at stake.” The USDA Prospective Plantings Report forecast a dramatic 30 percent increase in North Dakota corn acreage. “That report surprised many of us; what we were picking up across the countryside was a little different than what was in that report. We’ll have to see how it plays out.”
