Regents of the University of Minnesota. Pursuit (imazethapyr) doesn’t control this population of waterhemp because it’s resistant to Acetolactate Synthase (ALS) herbicides. In both years, glyphosate resulted in less than 23% control of glyphosate-resistant waterhemp and provided the least control of all herbicide programs. Farms became much … Genetic Diversity and Herbicide Resistance in Waterhemp • Waterhemp is dioecious (male and female flowers on separate plants), and must outcross. The Pursuit weedy check yield was 14 bushels per acre. Excellent control of … With today’s multiple mode resistance, some growers have near-zero chemical options. Remember one waterhemp plant can produce 300,000 seeds. Waterhemp density on June 8 was 51 per square feet in Pursuit check. What is the optimum time to make the layered application (20, 29, or 44 days after preemergence (at planting) application (DAP))? The 2,4-D herbicide is systemic and provides control of all broadleaf weeds, including waterhemp. Certain waterhemp populations in Ontario are resistant to triazine (i.e. The occurrence of HPPD-RW in Nebraska is significant because it limits the effectiveness of HPPD-inhibiting herbicides. Got waterhemp? It is an excellent foundational herbicide.” In a 2019 Southern Illinois University soybean trial, Authority Edge provided 98% control of waterhemp 42 days after the pre-emergent treatment. Programs containing PRE herbicides resulted in waterhemp densities of less than 5 plants/m 2, whereas the POST glyphosate treatment resulted in 38 to 70 plants/m 2. Identification starts with location. The University of Illinois weed science program recently announced confirmation of waterhemp populations resistant to Group 15 herbicides (Table 1), the first such confirmation of resistance in a dicot species to herbicides from this group. A number of soil applied residual herbicides will provide good early season control (Table 1). Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions. Consistency of waterhemp control with soil applied herbicides has varied and one should not expect perfect season long control. This gives it a better ability to develop herbicide resistance than non-dioecious weeds. Waterhemp has a wide emergence window and vigorous growth which makes chemical control with a single herbicide application difficult. Waterhemp: Best=Flexstar, 2=Marvel (Flexstar/Cadet premix), 3=Cobra or Cadet; Lambsquarters: Best by far=Harass ($1/acre), 2=Resource, 3=Pursuit; Kochia: Best (and by best I mean awful, but better than nothing)=Cobra, 2=Marvel, 3=Cadet; Common ragweed: Best=FirstRate (IF the ragweed is not ALS-resistant), 2=Flexstar, 3=Cobra; Marestail: Best (here again everything is terrible, so … Although these three HG 15 herbicides provided 82% or more control 50% of the time, the lowest control fell below 50%. June 16, 2016 | Posted in Crop Protection Source: University of Illinois Extension By Aaron Hager, Extension Weed Scientist Waterhemp continues to be one of the most widespread and troublesome broadleaf weed species with which farmers must contend. Waterhemp has evolved resistance to herbicides from more site-of-action groups than any other Illinois weed species, including resistance to inhibitors of acetolactate synthase (ALS), photosystem II (PSII), protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO), enolpyruvyl shikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS), hydroxyphenyl pyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD), and synthetic auxins. In addition to changes in tillage, the 1970s and 80s were the golden era of herbicide discovery. Soil-applied herbicide is the first chemical control step in protecting soybeans and corn from Waterhemp. In addition, glyphosate-resistant (Group-9) populations were first reported in 2007, and PPO-resistant (Group-14) populations were confirmed in southern Minnesota the past two growing seasons. Don’t omit this step! This is because we don’t have effective postemergence (POST) herbicides for waterhemp control, especially for any type of rescue treatment (waterhemp greater than two inches tall). Spray coverage is essential with any of these herbicides, so a minimum of 15 gallons per acre of spray solution should be used. Waterhemp can grow at the incredible rate of 1 to 1 1/4 inches per day, so timely herbicide application is critical. Figure 2 below shows a comparison of weed control in soybean with a single preemergence application of Outlook (left) and layered applications of Outlook on May 5 and June 8 (right). Resistant waterhemp continues to plague soybean farmers in many areas of the U.S. Technical expert Mike Meyer shares weed-control results from herbicide trials supporting a two-pass program for waterhemp control on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. atrazine) and group II (i.e. Paraquat plus surfactant should be mixed with residual herbicides to control Palmer amaranth and waterhemp emerged before application. Problem: Waterhemp is becoming resistant to everything Waterhemp is a dioecious species, with separate male and female plants. The factors that govern the effectiveness of postemergence herbicides are critically important when dealing with waterhemp. Therefore the genetic diversity within a waterhemp population tends to be … Although flumioxazin was very effective on … DO NOT apply more than a maximum of 2 lb ai/A per application or 2.5 lb ai/A total of atra-zine for all applications per season. Make the post application on weeds less than 4 inches tall. In waterhemp populations that are not PPO-resistant, how effective is layering multiple residual SOAs: soil applied Group-14 herbicide followed by a POST Group-15 herbicide. Group 14 herbicides are contact, cell membrane disrupters that require good spray coverage for best control. waterhemp to avoid many preemergence herbicides and to often flourish after post-emergence applications of non-residual herbicides such as glyphosate. To add to management challenges, some … One strategy is to layer residual herbicides which … Once plants exceed 3-inches tall, control with many of the postemergence herbicides is substantially reduced. Cross pollination results in tremendous variability within populations, which is evident from differences in plant color and other characteristics. • Waterhemp is a prolific seed producer and able to produce 1.5 times more seed than most other pigweed species. Time of application is very important. Table 1 shows yields after a residual herbicide was applied either PRE only (after planting, on May 5, 2015) or layered PRE/POST (May 15 and June 8, 2015) in Rochester in 2015. Cross pollination results in tremendous variability within populations, which is evident from differences in plant color and other characteristics. For best control, apply a pre-emergence residual herbicide followed by post-emergence applications as needed throughout the growing season. It involves a split application of herbicides with residual activity – the first application is made at or near planting, and then additional residual is included with the POST application (Figure 2). Most waterhemp populations have been resistant to ALS (Group-2) herbicides, such as Pursuit, for a while. How do Group-15 residual herbicides (Dual II Magnum®, Outlook®, and Warrant™) perform in a single preemergence treatment vs. a layered (two-pass) treatment comparison? The layered residual system is one of the best ways to reduce late-season waterhemp escapes in soybean. Herbicide rate, application timing, and spray pressure all influence how well these herbicides perform on waterhemp. However, a soil applied herbicide will eliminate the majority of … Waterhemp is increasingly difficult to manage, as it’s becoming more widespread and herbicide-resistant populations are expanding, including multiple-resistant populations. Consistency of waterhemp control with soil applied herbicides has varied and one should not expect perfect season long control. Photos taken July 14. Examples of Group 15 herbicides include: Dual ® II Magnum, Degree ® , Outlook ® , Zidua ® , or Anthem ® The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. Growers who suspect they have a glyphosate-resistant waterhemp problem should use a tank-mixture of glyphosate and a herbicide from Group 14 and/or Group 2 for effective postemergence control. All listed residual herbicides for preemergence application contain metribuzin. All rights reserved. Farmers should always use full, labeled rates and herbicides with multiple sites of action from different classes of chemistry. Dioecious reproduction results in all these resistance traits being mixed and matched within individuals. “To date, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth have evolved resistance to herbicides spanning seven and eight modes of action, respectively. This mixing has allowed populations of both species to combine multiple herbicide resistances, leaving producers with few effective herbicide choices,” … XtendiMax, Engenia or Fexapan, or Enlist One or Liberty, all will control small waterhemp but will … Currently, the spray requirements for 2,4-D are not as lengthy as dicamba. Some populations are resistant to 3-5 herbicide sites of action. Dioecious reproduction results in … Paraquat plus surfactant should be mixed with residual herbicides to control Palmer amaranth and waterhemp emerged before application. University of Minnesota Extension discovers science-based solutions, delivers practical education, and engages Minnesotans to build a better future. Warrant (acetochlor). The greatest level of waterhemp … Postemergence Soybean Herbicides Diphenyl ethers--acifluorfen (Blazer, Status), lactofen (Cobra), and fomesafen (Reflex, Flexstar). Waterhemp has a remarkable ability to adapt to control tactics and has evolved resistance to many different classes of herbicides. Waterhemp has a remarkable ability to adapt to control tactics and has developed resistance to many different classes of herbicides. With dwindling herbicide resources, there is a need to integrate non-chemical strategies into current weed management programs in soybean. It is critical to follow your management practices vigilantly to avoid this troublesome weed taking over your fields. However, an increased selection pressure from these herbicides used in corn-soybean rotations has resulted in … herbicides. Layer residual herbicides to maintain control. General Burndown herbicides for Palmer amaranth and waterhemp. 2020 Pursuit (imazethapyr) doesn’t control this population of waterhemp because it’s resistant to Acetolactate Synthase (ALS) herbicides. “The easiest answer to that situation is to do something different,” … While waterhemp is a challenging weed to manage, this trial demonstrates that layering effective residual herbicides is a strategy that could provide season-long control in Minnesota. Waterhemp control was more variable with s-metolachlor, dimethenamid-P and acetochlor. Step 6: Additional postemergence herbicide applications if needed. waterhemp. Control of waterhemp is best achieved with a two-pass herbicide program where the first pass is with a pre-emergence (PRE) soil applied herbicide and the second with a postemergent (POST) herbicide. This emergence pattern allows waterhemp to avoid many pre-emergent herbicides and often allows this weed to flourish after postemergent applications of nonresidual … Spray volumes of 10-15 GPA and spray tips providing very coarse or extremely coarse droplets are recommended. Paraquat plus surfactant should be mixed with residual herbicides to control Palmer amaranth and waterhemp emerged before application. Lisa Behnken, Extension educator; Fritz Breitenbach, former Extension integrated pest management specialist; Jeff Gunsolus, Extension weed scientist and Phyllis Bongard, Extension communications specialist. Known Resistance in Waterhemp In Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and other areas across the Corn Belt, there is documented waterhemp resistance to ALS inhibitors (Group 2), PPO inhibitors (Group 14), glyphosate (Group 9), triazines (Group 5) and HPPD inhibitors (Group 27). Across years, application timing is more important than herbicide choice for waterhemp (Figure 1). Watch weed size. Herbicides were combined and … Several ALS-inhibitor herbicides are also labeled for control of palmer amaranth, but the prevalence of ALS-resistant populations limits their usefulness. In July, weed control evaluations clearly showed an advantage of the two-pass system over single applications of residual herbicides (Figure 2). Consider planting Liberty Link soybean. This mixing has allowed populations of both species to combine multiple herbicide resistances, leaving producers with few effective herbicide … Programs containing PRE herbicides resulted in waterhemp densities of less than 5 plants/m 2, whereas the POST glyphosate treatment resulted in 38 to 70 plants/m 2. As farmers know waterhemp germinates continuously throughout the season, so it’s hard to distinguish when the plant emerged and if it would have been exposed to soil-applied herbicides. Utilizing PRE herbicides for waterhemp control early in the season reduces weed competition and the number of individuals that will need to be controlled with a post … The diphenyl ether herbicides include Blazer/Status, Flexstar/Reflex, and Cobra. © Waterhemp is increasingly difficult to manage, as it’s becoming more widespread and herbicide-resistant populations are expanding, including multiple-resistant populations. © Regents of the University of Minnesota. Use multiple modes of action when possible and apply to a weed-free … In fact, research has shown this strategy can provide season-long control for Minnesota soybean. Layby cultivation is an excellent control strategy for late-emerging weeds such as waterhemp. The additional residual herbicide extends activity later into the season than a single … 2. However, a soil applied herbicide will eliminate the majority of early seedlings and will reduce the risk of having large, less susceptible seedling plants emerged at the time of the post-emergence herbicide pass. Yields reflected the weed control results with a 10 bushel average difference between the layered and single PRE applications. “Plants with one type of glyphosate-resistance mechanism make multiple copies of the target site for glyphosate, a gene called EPSPS. Because waterhemp is dioecious, with separate male and female plants, it has the potential for greater genetic diversity. "To date, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth have evolved resistance to herbicides spanning seven and eight modes of action, respectively. Often, producers like to wait as long as possible to apply postemergence herbicides, especially those that lack any significant soil activity, so that as many … Later emerging plants are often less competitive, but are still capable of producing seeds that will have to be controlled the next season. The season-long control of the layered or preemergence application followed by a postemergence application (PRE/POST) persisted through the end of the season, while control in the PRE-only treatments continued to diminish (Table 1). Waterhemp seed production was reduced at least 78% in all PRE fb POST programs, from 55 to 71% in POST programs containing lactofen and acifluorfen and by only 21% in the POST glyphosate treatment. Sulfentrazone (HG 14) and metribuzin (HG 5) provided more consistent PRE waterhemp control compared to flumioxazin (HG 14) over the study. Waterhemp has an extended emergence window and is a competitive, prolific and genetically diverse weed species which has evolved resistance to commonly used corn and soybean herbicides across the Midwest (see 2019 Wisconsin Waterhemp Herbicide Resistance Project Update). Although the application window for 2,4-D is longer I would still … See Table 1 for a list of PRE soybean herbicides that provide effective control of herbicide-resistant waterhemp. Postemergence herbicides for waterhemp control in soybean are essentially limited to two herbicide families, the diphenyl ethers and glyphosate-type products. Glyphosate-resistant waterhemp was first identified in Missouri in 2005 and subsequently has been identified in Illinois and several other states. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. The use of PRE-emergence herbicides is a foundation for waterhemp control in soybeans. “To date, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth have evolved resistance to herbicides spanning seven and eight modes of action, respectively. Problem: Waterhemp is becoming resistant to everything Waterhemp is a dioecious species, with separate male and female plants. Herbicide resistance. Waterhemp populations have evolved resistance to atrazine; to ALS-inhibiting herbicides … "To date, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth have evolved resistance to herbicides spanning seven and eight modes of action, respectively. Herbicides containing a PPO-inhibitor such as lactofen, fomesafen, and acifluorfen will provide post-emergence control of glyphosateresistant palmer amaranth in - soybean (Holshouser et al. waterhemp with PRE herbicides containing multiple SoAs. Moreover, the use of PRE her-bicides with effective SoAs is an especially important component of a diversified control program necessary for managing herbicide-resistant weeds. The use of soil residual herbicides is a foundation for waterhemp control and given that several … 2. Use a soil-applied residual herbicide on target weeds like waterhemp at or near planting time. Not every individual waterhemp plant is resistant to one or more herbicides, but the majority of field-level waterhemp populations contain one … Waterhemp’s most significant challenge is that it resists multiple herbicides and has rendered ineffective many options that you use in soybeans, says Hager. The reduction in tillage, both pre- and post-plant, created a better environment for waterhemp than existed previously, and likely contributed to an increase in waterhemp populations. Herbicides were selected for their known effectiveness in controlling waterhemp and their flexibility in application timing. Season-long control may require more than one application of residual herbicides. Control waterhemp before it reaches 4 inches in height to achieve timely and effective herbicide application. The first waterhemp plants to emerge are the most competitive and have the greatest potential to produce large numbers of seeds. In a site with glyphosate-, ALS- and PPO-resistant waterhemp, PRE herbicides reduced late-season waterhemp density by at least 97 percent compared with a single postemergence (POST) application of glyphosate plus a PPO-inhibiting herbicide. It is concluded that the suspected waterhemp biotype is resistant to HPPD-inhibiting herbicides and alternative herbicide programs are available for effective control in corn. All listed residual herbicides for preemergence application contain metribuzin. Peak Plus, Summit etc.) — The size of the waterhemp at the time of application is a critical determinant of the level of waterhemp control achieved, as Group 14 herbicides are most effective against waterhemp four inches or less in height. In addition, it has a long emergence pattern and frequently outlasts control of an early preemergence herbicide application. 2008). It means we must adapt our waterhemp control strategy since sugarbeet will not reach the sugarbeet 2-lf stage by May 15 or in time for lay-by application of chloroacetamide herbicides and before waterhemp germination and … According to our SURVEY conducted earlier this year, the use of a single POST herbicide pass is still a common weed control strategy for several farmers in Wisconsin. This mixing has allowed populations of both species to combine multiple herbicide resistances, leaving producers with few effective herbicide choices,” Tranel says. seedlings to acquire more sunlight than other weeds. Plant into a clean seedbed. A second or layered application about 30 days after planting will extend the duration of seedling control to cover waterhemp’s extended emergence period. — Group 14 herbicides like Flexstar and Cobra should be applied in a minimum of 15 gallons of water per acre. Waterhemp has two known strategies to ward off glyphosate-based herbicides, such as Roundup, and the researchers tested the frequency of both. The yield range of the layered herbicide treatments was 46 to 51 bushels per acre, while the PRE-only treatments ranged from 32 to 43 bushels per acre.
