Sugarbeet Herbicides, 2020 (04/30/20)

The sugarbeet herbicides we use in 2020 will be the same herbicides we used in 2019 as there are no new products or label changes, at least changes I am aware of. Two important points in preparation for weed management, 2020.

The sugarbeet herbicides we use in 2020 will be the same herbicides we used in 2019 as there are no new products or label changes, at least changes I am aware of. Two important points in preparation for weed management, 2020. First, retailers will not be selling Betamix, but growers can continue to use Betamix they received from the cooperatives and secured in on-farm storage if they follow the label. Second, growers should discuss presence of hard-to-control or resistant weeds in their community with their neighbors, their county agent, their ag-retailer or their consultant. Weed resistance happens locally and herbicide effectiveness in a different county or state does not matter. What matters is herbicide performance on your farm or in your township.
