Agronomists and weed scientists recommend using more soil residual herbicides at full use rates to take weed stress off non-residual postemergence herbicides by introducing multiple, effective modes of action, different chemistries and controlling weeds for longer periods of time before they emerge. This strategy is called the Overlap System. </p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/fmc/use-overlap-system-more-complete-weed-control" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/fmc/use-overlap-system-more-complete-weed-control#comments Crop Chemicals FMC Herbicides Weeds Tue, 17 Mar 2015 14:09:00 +0000 96451 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com Effective herbicide applications to manage weed resistance http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/crop-chemicals/effective-herbicide-applications-manage-weed-resistance <div class="node-body video-body"><p>What's an effective herbicide alternative to combat weed resistance?
