Nothing is a 100%! If you know me very well, you know I’m a very analytical person. I tend to think, rethink and sometimes over think most things. So when it came down to a herbicide program on my beans, I had a plan. I practice no-till on my farm and just started experimenting with cover crops. I knew marestail would be an issue on the farm and would have to control the cereal rye cover crop. I sprayed early with a good tank mix of products. Overall the field had been relatively weed free, but found some surviving marestail.
Did the program work? Most definitely? I most likely controlled 99% of the weeds in the field. Am I happy with my escapes? No, but I’m already thinking about improvements I can make next year. In our business, nothing is one hundred percent, but that’s not going to stop me from trying to get there. Brad
