Pulse School - Pulse Management - The Weed Free Period, Seeding Rates & Dry Down Products

by

Spray timing, plant population and desiccants are very important elements to manage when it comes to weed control and the proper development of your pulse crop. According to Weed Biologist Eric Johnson of Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, producers should start to plan weed control 2 to 3 years ahead. What that means is that in addition to spraying your crop, you consider the crops you place in rotation prior to your pulses with these questions in mind. Will they out-compete weeds? Can you use a pre-harvest glyphosate in those crops? How will your choices help to prepare the land for your pulse crop? Will any herbicide strategy I take on that crop affect my ability to market my pulse crop?
