Want to try something new to burndown weeds before you plant cereals?
Nufarm just registered GlyKamba herbicide, a premix of glyphosate and dicamba (hence the clever name). GlyKamba can be used in summerfallow or before planting wheat, barley, oats, or field corn. There is a pretty impressive list of weeds on the label, but if you tank mix it with 2,4-D, the list of weeds controlled gets almost too long to name at well over 50 species. Of course, you could just buy the ingredients and make this up yourself, but this looks like a very convenient premix of a Group 4 and Group 9 herbicide in the right ratio to take care of the weeds most farmers are likely to encounter.
While GlyKamba is not being touted right now as a resistance management product, when tank mixed with the high label rate of 2,4-D, it seems reasonable to think that this might be a straight-forward way for farmers to stave off the threat of glyphosate resistant and Group 2 resistant annual broadleaf weeds.
We don’t know if this will be released in time for spring, so check with your local dealer if you are interested in giving GlyKamba a try this season
