Still wondering whats the best option for your operation
Xtend beans, Liberty beans, RR or conventional beans?  We have all beans available for now, but its also important to consider the price of chemical for each.  With the Xtend we're hearing rumors that you must have a 150ft "buffer" around your field (and lets face it, that can be the worst part of the field.)
Also, you can not tank mix it with any other chemical including AMS.
 Please give us a call with any questions before you make any decisions.

We will be at the "Cover your Acres" farm show Oberlin,KS 
Tuesady and Wednesday, Jan 17th & 18th
Hope you see you there!

We know you are busy, if you need to come in earlier or later, give us a call and we will make every attempt to assist you. 

Weekday Hours:
Monday - Friday
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Please Call 800-821-4289 or 785-346-5681

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.
