2 questions I get asked when meeting with growers this winter is how they can maximize their profits with the reduced commodity prices and what should they  spray this spring for control of Marestail  since very little fall spraying was done.   1 way to maximize the return on investment is with fungicide on soybeans.  Mercer Landmark had 20 Side X Sides out in Van Wert, Mercer and Paulding Counties and the areas treated with fungicide avg 4.9 bu more per acre on average than the untreated area.  So at $10/bu beans, after taking out the cost of the fungicide, you are adding approx. $26.00/ac to your bottom line.  To control Marestail in the spring Ohio State recommends using a residual such as metribuzin, Valor XLT, Sonic, Boundary or the Authority products with  your 2,4-D and Glyphosate.  For more information contact your Local Mercer Landmark representative.
