The weather roller coaster continues. After the recent cold spell, the forecast calls for warmer temperatures this week. Regarding weed control, BASF Technical Service Representative Ken Diebert says farmers are asking about the need for a pre-emergence herbicide. “One size doesn’t fit all, but the areas that have moisture, we’re sitting with a good timeline to get those pre’s down.” Weeds are easiest to control early in the season. “If we don’t get it up front in the form of a pre, we will want to do our best to get some residual in-season including early post-emergence.”
