Liberty Corn Herbicide - 2012 Product Guide

  1. 1. Herbicide Recommendations for LibertyLinkCorn Weed Control Program 1st Post Application (Emergence to 10 days or when weeds are no more than 3 to 4 inches) 2nd Post Application Post corn emergence Liberty at 22 fl oz/A plus residual herbicide If needed, Liberty at 22 fl oz/A or, if sequential applications planned, apply 10 days after first application 1. Start Clean. Start with a clean, weed-free field by using an effective burndown application or conventional tillage. 2. Stay Clean. Be aggressive with early season weed management to avoid yield loss and weed escapes. Residual herbicides applied at burndown, pre-emergence and/or tankmixed in the first post application help ensure optimal weed management, particularly if environmental conditions delay timely post applications. Consider expected weed species and populations as well as environmental variables when selecting a residual herbicide. 4. Additives: Ammonium sulfate (AMS) can be used at a rate of 1.5 lb/A to 3 lb/A. 5. Maximum Seasonal Use Rate: 44 fl oz/A per growing season. 6. Additional Use Directions: a. Can be applied broadcast to LibertyLink corn from emergence to V7 growth stage (seven fully developed leaf collars). b. Should be applied when winds are less than 10 mph, and not during periods of temperature inversions. c. Do not apply within 60 days of harvesting corn forage or 70 days of harvesting corn grain and corn fodder. d. Consult product label for full use directions, tankmix partners and restrictions.
