Soybean School: Early Weed Control Strategies Drive Yield


Growing a good yielding soybean crop starts before it’s even in the ground. Planting into a field with the potential for heavy weed pressure can cost you anywhere up to 80 percent of your yield. It’s incredibly important therefore to make sure that ground is as clean as possible both before you plant and after emergence. There are a number of strategies you can follow to ensure that happens and that you aren’t sharing the ground with yield-robbing weeds.


In this episode of the Soybean School we go through some of those strategies with OMAFRA Weed Management Specialist Mike Cowbrough. We talk to Mike about some of the advantages of residual herbicides, pre-seed burn-off as well as tillage options and post emergence follow up.
