Pre-emergence Residual Herbicides are the Foundation of Soybean Weed Control March 29, 2018

Even with new dicamba-resistant soybeans, pre-emergence, residual herbicides are needed to mitigate yield loss due to weed competition, provide a longer time for soybean to establish, and reduce selection pressure for weeds resistant to post-emergence herbicides.
