Note on Small Grain Weed Control

Mark VanGessel, Extension Weed Specialist; mjv@udel.edu

Due to fall rain showers, a lot of small grain fields were not sprayed for weeds last fall. Be sure to scout your fields early and determine if a spring herbicide application is needed. Early spring applications of Harmony Extra, Axial XL, Huskie, Quelex, Starane Ultra, 2,4-D, Clarity, Dimetric (metribuzin), or Talinor have provided good weed control even with low temperatures. Be sure to read the label for crop rotation, required adjuvants, and restrictions for application with nitrogen.
