Weed growth has increased considerably with the elevated soil temperatures and soil moisture availability. Thus, the use of a burndown treatment (see the May 4, 1998 ICM article, Burndown timing for no till fields, page 65) will be of critical importance for soybean production systems and 2,4-D is an excellent, cost-effective herbicide to use for broadleaf weed control. There are several factors to consider when determining which formulation and how much material to use.
