Through my travels at the end of last week and throughout this week I have noticed that there are a lot of soybean fields in my area that have emerged and have some nice stands in the field.  Another thing I have been noticing though is how much weed pressure some of the fields have.  The reason all of these fields are having problems is because the farmer was unable to get a pre-emerge herbicide down before the soybeans came up.  In some instances I have seen weeds that are over a foot tall already.  I understand that sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate with all the things that need to be done during the busy spring season. However, if you are not able to get a residual herbicide down early then make sure to keep an eye on your fields and don’t let the weeds take over before the soybeans even get a chance to grow.  Every situation is different but there are many different herbicide options and programs available to solve any problem.  The most important thing is to be proactive and don’t wait for weeds to be visible while drive 50 mph down the road.  Ask your local Mercer Landmark representative if you have questions about what herbicides you should be using for post emergence treatment in soybeans.
