Controlling Resistant Waterhemp in Soybeans

Resistant waterhemp continues to plague soybean growers in many areas of the U.S. Difficult to control with traditional herbicide programs, resistant waterhemp requires management programs with multiple modes of action that are effective against those weed populations.

Technical expert Mike Meyer shares weed-control results from herbicide trials supporting a two-pass program for waterhemp (video) control on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. The programs feature DuPont™ FeXapan™ herbicide Plus VaporGrip® Technology used postemergence pass to help manage resistant weeds. 

Meyer compares performance of two-pass herbicide programs that use layered residual control to limit emergence of yield-robbing waterhemp and other weeds.

DuPont FeXapan is a restricted-use pesticide.
