There is several methods of weed control in wheat that we can do to take care of weed pressure. One is tillage and the other is spraying a herbicide. Since most farmers no-till wheat, spraying a herbicide before emergence or after is beneficial. Spraying a herbicide helps with marestail and other winter annuals that are germinating in the fall that can overwinter. We do have different chemical options to consider to take care of our weed pressure in wheat. We have to be careful and read the label for certain stages that we can spray the wheat. Preemergence burndown plus residual would be glyphosate+ Sharpen at 1.5 to 2 oz/acre + MSO. There are products we can use post on wheat in the fall from different companies. Spring post treatments are also available that are very effective also. Consult with your local Mercer Landmark agronomist for the best recommendations for weed control in wheat.
