About This Episode

In the spring when the timetable seems to grow more and more condensed, it’s easy to choose the perceived “easy button” option.

However, relying on this type of herbicide program can put a strain on an operation and its bottom line that season and for years to come. Join Nick Hustedde, technical services manager at FMC, as he examines the building blocks of a preemergence herbicide program and answers the question of why relying strictly on a postemergence plus residual combination isn’t the soundest weed management strategy anymore.
