Corteva Agriscience market development specialist Bridgette Readel tells farmers to be ready for weeds when the weather warms up. “If I was a grower, I’d be thinking about when I’ll do my pre-emergence herbicides,” she says. “We need to know what is going to emerge, time it right and be flexible. That’s hard to do, because farmers don’t want to abandon their weed management plan, but Mother Nature is throwing us a curve so we’ll have to be flexible.” Presented by the North Dakota Soybean Council, Weed Management Strategies is a ten-part series exploring best management practices and the tools to help farmers take care of herbicide resistant weeds.
