Control Weeds on ACR Acres

Left unattended, ACR acres can turn into a real weed problem next year. Take advantage of the opportunity to clean up a weed problem; don't create a problem for next year.

Ideal growing conditions coupled with no tillage on ACR acres have set the stage for excellent control of perennial weeds. Keys to success in perennial weed control with herbicides are good growing conditions and correct growth stage of the weed.

New Registrations

Gallery 75df from Elanco has received federal registration. Gallery is a pre emergence broadleaf herbicide for use in turf and ornamentals. Fall or early spring applications will control 44 different broadleaf weeds including knotweed, oxalis, spurge, plaintain, henbit, white clover, and chickweed.

Poast from BASF has been granted a section 18 registration for postemergence grass control in fieldbeans. Poast can be applied by ground or air using crop oil concentrate as an additive. A single or two applications can be made at a rate not to exceed a total of 1 pt/A. Users need to complete a permit available from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
