Corn herbicide question

I was just wondering what some of you are doing for weed control in corn? I always have the local elevator spray a pre-emerge herbicide after planting. This year I had them spray Parallel plus, Basis and a half pint of 2,4,D to kill any weeds that didn't die in the disc pass and used 28% as the carrier. With all of the rain that we have had over the past month, this year is starting to mirror last year. Last year herbicides seemed to either leach or die out early leaving many fields including mine full of giant ragweed by harvest. Do you think I should consider having atrazine sprayed soon as a precaution, try something else, or do nothing and wait and see? Thanks for the input in advance.
