Dicamba is likely not an option for 2020 weed control in North Dakota, which could present a challenge for farmers who already have Xtend soybeans seeded. “The court’s dicamba decision comes right after most farmers finished soybean planting. There will be broad issues and some unknowns,” said Adam Spelhaug, agronomy manager, Peterson Farms Seed. “There’s probably people who have dicamba products in their shed or at the dealership. What happens with that? We know that Bayer is going to be coming out with more details.” Spelhaug said many farmers will have to manage what they have already planted. There are options for weed management. “Glyphosate can still get 80 percent of weeds really well, but it’s taking care of resistant weeds that will be a challenge,” said Spelhaug. “In-season residuals are going to be really big to make sure we’re having long-season control. The Group 15 herbicides including Warrants and Duals will be top-of-mind. Then, the Flexstar, Cobra and Blazer herbicides to spray with Roundup will be some of our main options.” Hear the story.
