Cobra Herbicide Use on the Rise?

Fighting Glyphosate Resistant Weeds

July 26, 2013

Cobra herbicide is often used to manage glyphosate-resistant weeds in soybeans. Cobra provides control of more than 54 problem weeds, including waterhemp, pigweed, Palmer amaranth, annual nightshades, ragweed and cocklebur. Unfortunately, the use of Cobra has been known to cause some unsightly injury to soybeans.
Glyphosate is a great herbicide, however, continued use has resulted in weed resistance throughout the Midwest. Luckily, you can fight glyphosate weed resistance today with LibertyLink soybeans. Liberty herbicide has zero documented cases of resistant weeds. Beck’s Hybrids offers a complete lineup of LibertyLink soybeans. Take Beck’s Liberty pledge and be free of weed resistance. Claim your freedom. Plant Beck’s. Choose Liberty.
