Indiana farmer finds singular success for weed control in corn
In past years, DeYoung sprayed everything right behind the planter with a Like many farmers, Doug DeYoung has reduced rate of atrazine or Harness® heard those magic words before, but until Extra, followed by a summertime post last year, he didn’t really believe application of Roundup®. That program in them. left DeYoung with weed escapes, “I’m always skeptical. I’ve had products especially with giant ragweed and in the past that said one-pass,” DeYoung burcucumber. Using Capreno was a said, adding that they didn’t deliver on different story, however. all promises. “Capreno did the job. It took care of So, when he heard of Capreno® the weeds that you would think it should, herbicide, he wanted to try it out on more plus these problem weeds,” he said. than a patch. “I had the least burcucumber at harvest than I’ve had in last 10 years. This year I had total weed control, and that is very valuable.” So valuable, that DeYoung said he plans to use Capreno on all his acres in 2012. “Our goal is to spray it once and be happy,” DeYoung said. “Where I used Roundup only, I had to spray twice because I didn’t have any residual.” For optimum control of burcucumber, Capreno should be tankmixed with atrazine or glyphosate.
Recognizing Agriculture’s Lasting Heritage Capreno herbicide, the longest-lasting herbicide of its kind, has partnered with the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture to further recognize Century Farmers and the lasting heritage of American agriculture. The program, available at www.AgriculturesLastingHeritage.org, celebrates the contribution of century farms to the lasting heritage of our nation. The site includes profiles of farm families that have worked the land and kept farms in their families for more than 100 years. “On behalf of Capreno and Bayer CropScience, we’re excited to partner with the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture to make this program possible,” said Jeff Springsteen, Capreno herbicide marketing manager. “Bayer CropScience constantly strives to deliver innovations, whether it’s developing a top-performing crop input or supporting a useful, educational website. This online resource is a great opportunity to honor the lasting heritage of agriculture and the future of farmers.”

DeYoung said that Capreno also helps him manage planting and spray schedule demands. One fewer trip across the field is a big advantage, he explained, especially in continuous corn. “It made the planting season a little less hectic. You could basically get your corn planted first and come back and spray it. When I’m planting corn, I need another man to run a sprayer during planting season, but if I’m done planting corn, I can jump on the sprayer, and save on labor too.” To learn more about Capreno herbicide, contact your local Bayer CropScience representative or visit www.Capreno.us.

“I tried it on two-thirds of my acres to be sure it was truly a one-pass product,” he explained. “Now after I’ve used it, I’ve changed my mind. I believe it. You never know until you try it on your own farm.”

According to Bayer CropScience product manager Jeff Springsteen, Capreno postemergence corn herbicide delivers season-long control of more than 65 DeYoung farms 1,500 acres of continuous corn in northwest Indiana. He made grass and broadleaf weeds, including the decision to go all corn-on-corn about glyphosate-resistant weeds. seven years ago, he said. “I was getting “Capreno provides the longest-lasting stronger yields in my corn over my residual of any post-applied corn soybean yields. Basically, [corn] was herbicide,” said Springsteen. “Capreno more profitable.” allows maximum flexibility on corn However, he cannot remain profitable if he can’t control weeds, so weed management is a major component of his overall strategy. KNOW YOUR WEEDS When it comes to herbicide choice, DeYoung asks himself one thing first and foremost: Does it work on the right weeds? acres, with a wide application window from pre-emergence to V6. It can be applied effectively alone or in tankmix with glyphosate, Liberty® herbicide or atrazine. And that makes it a valuable resistance management option.” DeYoung chose a tankmix of Capreno and generic glyphosate for an additional mode of action.

“There’s definitely concern out there,” “That’s the No. 1 quality. Does it get the DeYoung said of resistance. “By using weeds that I might have a problem with?” Capreno instead of just Roundup, it’s going to help prevent resistance. With Capreno, he said the answer is a resounding “yes,” even on his toughest weeds – giant ragweed and burcucumber. You need to switch your chemicals to prevent glyphosate resistance, and we don’t want to lose glyphosate.”
