Drought results in unique weed challenges. According to Pioneer field agronomist Larry Lunder, weed control was very effective. “Hats off to the farmers, they did a really good job managing weeds and some of them are seeing the payback when they harvest a better crop than was expected,” said Lunder. “It was key to have these options now with Enlist and Extend.” As farmers make seed corn decisions for next year, Lunder encourages them to check out the drought ratings. “Hopefully, we aren’t in a drought next year, but if we are still on the drier side, you can put these products in with more confidence that they’ll perform better under the tough conditions.”
