Volunteer Corn Question?

What are you doing to fight the volunteer RR corn in continuous corn.

 

We striptil with minimum tillage.  This year saw a lot of rain early and delays in planting.  The volunteer kept coming with the rains.....

We treat the early stuff with Selectmax. ---- works fairly

Some in this area just seem to ignore it.  But it is pretty bad in places....

Rotation??

Machete??

 

 

Call Ecin??

You could alternate between Liberty Link and RR seed, but some seed has both tolerances. Maybe cultivate and adjust the combine better.  Smiley Happy

Re: Volunteer Corn Question?

we just had to cultivate, thats the only choice, if your in an area that you can work the ground in the fall thats an option as well,,,,,graze the stalks with cattle in the fall
