Weed Control Starts Here
Next Season's Weed Control Decisions Start Here - Avadex Liquid EC
Every field has a weed seed bank that, year in and year out, has the potential to create weed problems that compete for resources, limiting the yield potential of your wheat, barley, pea, or canola crop. Wild oats can quickly dominate a field if left unchecked. An individual plant may produce 20 to 150 seeds that remain viable for 4 to 5 years. Allowing wild oats to grow to maturity adds more seeds to the bank, continuing the plant's life cycle.
Scout for Next Season
Throughout this year's growing season, scouting in the field is critical to making next year's herbicide decision. Scouting multiple times during the growing season indicates where and to what extent wild oats are present throughout the field. With over 60% of fields showing Group 1 and/or 2 resistant wild oats, follow-ups after post-emergent application are essential to determine if resistance is in the field.
Collecting seeds and testing for resistance is recommended to verify if a field has wild oats resistant to any herbicide. Rotating group 15 wild oat herbicides - Avadex MicroActiv, Fortress MicroActiv, or Avadex Liquid EC - into next year's herbicide layering plan is a prudent method of reducing the effects of resistant wild oat populations.
