XtendiMax™ is Now Labeled for Use...

Author: Luke Schulte

By now many of you are probably aware that the EPA has approved the use of the herbicide XtendiMax™ with VaporGrip™ technology for in-crop use in dicamba tolerant soybeans. The Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans will have tolerance to both glyphosate as well as dicamba. Currently, the XtendiMax label only has a two-year registration. The EPA has reserved the right to rescind the label if they feel the product is being misused, is having a negative impact on the environment and general public impact, or is having a high number of off-target incidents.

It’s Never Too Early to Plan for Next Year…

Author: Luke Schulte

For some of you that means tillage, for others who do not intend to till their acres, this means controlling those fall emerged weeds.

Soybeans Not Fit to Harvest?

Author: Luke Schulte

“Harvest time is here but my soybeans won’t get fit to harvest!”

A very common, yet intriguing question many farmers have had this fall. I’ve heard numerous remarks such as “my 3.5 maturity soybeans will be ready before my 2.9 soybeans and I planted them at the same time!” So why are soybeans maturing inconsistently?

Ear molds are of particular concern because of the adverse effects they can have on grain storage. They also result in the development of mycotoxins, which can have detrimental effects on feed value and animal health.
