Get ahead of early emerging weeds

Farmers are encouraged to get in front of early emerging weeds.

Mark Mongen is an Enlist field specialist for Corteva Agriscience who covers Michigan and Ohio.

“We don’t want weeds to get a foothold in our corn and soybean fields, because once the do they become more difficult to control later in the season. Weed competition can also rob young crops of essential resources including sunlight, water, (and) nutrients.”

With weed management, he tells Brownfield it’s critical to start the season clean.
