spray #4 glyphosate at 32oz/A tank mix with Banvel or Sharpen (if you hae puncture vine add 4oz Picloram 22K) * Be cautious with 2 4-D and Banvel for drift concerns
Step 2: ( in Mid-Fall)
follow up with Glyphosate, Broadleaf Chemicals and Atrazine (Remember to appy Atrazine after it cools down)
Don't forget to apply a fall pre herbicide to get ahead of tough weeds, such as marestail, kochia & pigweeds

Fertilizer prices are still running low! Give us a call to lock in the great deals before they start creeping up.
Ryan complied these Break-Even Costs on 11/24/15, please know all prices are subject to change.
I put this together to get an idea of how many bushels it takes to raise a crop. I know quite a few of my chemical, fertilizer and seeding rates will rates will create arguments, but I had to start somewhere. You know how it goes, ask a hundred people what they do and you will get a hundred different answers. I've been showing some of my friends this and after I show it, they always question why the farm economy and commodieties are all in the dumps. So... I'm kinda apprehensive about it going out. Most times when I show the break-even sheet the fella I was showing it to wanted a copy, so I'm hoping some of you guys will find it interesting too. My buddies are quick to point out I forgot cash-rent, grasshoppers, insurance, fungicide, tax or running over a deer antler with a brand new combine tire. Well again, I was just trying to get an idea of a basic break-even crop. I'm aware it costs more but maybe you can use my guide to help you pencilout how it relates to your farming operation. Heck maybe you can show it to your landlord and get them to lower you rent. If you are interested in using a different herbicide or would like me to pencil out something specific for you operations, just give me a call. Thanks, Ryan

Tips for Using Burndow Herbicides
Do not apply either glyphosate or Gramozone unless daytime temperatures exceed 55-60` F.
The higher the temperature the better.
Cold nights (<40`F) will reduce activity, particularly for glyphosate.
Sunny weather is important for Gramoxone as sun causes greater plant activity.
Be sure to include AMS at 8.5 to 17 lbs/100gal or equivalent with glyohosate and add a good quality NIS at a .25% v/v to Gramoxone. Of course, if the glyphosate doesn't come fully loaded, add good quality NIS as well.
Nitrogen solutions (UAN) may be used as the carrier with either herbicide. UAN can increase Gramoxone activity and reduce glyphosate activity (especially for perennials and difficult to control weeds). Adding AMS also reduces the antagonism.
Tank mixing a triazine such as atrazine with Gramoxone increases the activity; tank mixing any other herbicide and especially a clay-based herbicide (DF,F,WP) reduces glyphosate activity. YOU can overcome the antagonism by increasing the glyphosate rate by 20 to 25%.
Use Flat fan tips with both (not floods) and apply Gramoxone at a minimum of 20 GPA. Tip selection is less important with glyphosate than Gramoxone.
Spraying in late afternoon is not as effective as mid morning.
Finally, spray weeds that are actively growing and the smaller, the better for annuals.
