Intense heat is also in store from the central Plains to central and southern Midwest and the Delta. This combination will stress row crops in at least half the Corn Belt. A new round of heat is also pegged for the Northern Plains. » More DTN Weather Commentary

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
