Preemergence soybean herbicides



When I first started with Successful Farming in 2005, university weed specialists urged farmers to apply preemergence herbicides on soybeans. At that time, I got the impression use was 50-50 if that. My feeling now is that use of preemergence herbicides on soybeans is nearly universal.

Am I right? Are you seeing anything differently in your areas?

I would say your right Gil -   The only way to try and control the hard weeds is at the beginning = pre.

Pre-emergence herbicides has been the rule for most around here.  Trying to get some residual down.
