Pulse School: Herbicide layering makes the most of in- and out-of-season weed control


Controlling weed populations in fields destined for pulse crops is complicated by a few factors, including pulse sensitivity to carryover, poor early crop competition, and herbicide-resistant problem weeds.

Sean McKnight, technical marketing specialist for herbicides with BASF, explains in this Pulse School episode how the concept of herbicide layering is an especially useful one for pulse acres as it maximizes using both ends of the growing season for weed control.

Herbicide layering works in-tandem with herbicide tank-mixing and proper mode-of-action rotation, as well โ€” it’s not a one or the other decision, it’s using both to leverage product options, immediate and residual control, and to help delay resistance onset within some weed populations.
