Apply The Right Rate For The Right Size At The Right Time.
In the 1990s, reduced herbicide rates were seen as an environmentally sound practice and were a part of many integrated approaches to weed management in crops.
This fit well with the concept of weed economic thresholds to optimize crop with low density weed populations.
However, recurrent exposure to low herbicide doses that allow a proportion of the weed population to survive may have unintentionally accelerated the evolution of herbicide-resistant weeds. Therefore, it’s important to apply the labeled rate as recommended.
