wheat planting is here (get your crop off to a fast start with starter fertilizer)
stop in and talk with us about your wheat
We have 5 main wheat spraying herbicide systems we are running this year: Broadleaves (Finesse, Rave) Winter Annual Grasses (Olympus, Power flex) and of course Beyond (clear field varieties only)
Remember: if your going to spray for grass in your wheat using either powerflex or olympus the best opportunity for a kill is spraying it in the fall. Spring spraying for grass is more likely going to be for suppression rather than actually killing the grass you are after. In addition, if you are using beyond, a 2 pass system (one in the fall and one in the spring) is more effective than just a single spring application, but will get pricey.
It is recommended for each of the grass herbicides to run at least some liquid nitrogen with them.
Applying nitrogen to wheat over the winter allows more time to for the nitrogen to get to the root zone so the nitrogen is in place when the wheat comes out of dormancy.
Stop in the agronomy shop or call for current prices on these herbicides and more!!
Taking orders now for spraying broadleaf weeds in dormant alfalfa.
Winter months are a good time to get the ALFALFA, WATERWAY ,and BROME fields fertilized!
Wondering why your wheat is yellowing? Could it be Rust?
