Weed Control With POST Herbicides Peanut Notes No. 100 2019
Weed Control Question:
Either you have told me or someone has recently that you are not a fan of Storm mixed with Gramoxone anymore. Is that correct?
Yes. I think it is hotter than Gramoxone plus Basagran, most especially when mixed with residual herbicides. I also like to save the PPO inhibitor for the next 2 POST sprays we often make. I like Gramoxone about 2-3 weeks after planting for best results. There is a lot of season left. But it is used a lot down south and is really good on weeds. I just seem to have smaller peanuts after I spray it with residuals. And most folks are spraying residuals. At 1 pint (acifluorfen or Ultra Blazer part of Storm) it is generally a sub-lethal rate and could possibly push us more quickly to PPO resistance. But it is labeled. Also, I have never been a fan of that mix.
So, Gramoxone + Basagran + Zidua you like? And maybe the Zidua, if activated with rain in time, could cut out one of those post sprays?
Yes, that is possible. Several residuals can be used but Zidua is a good one.
