A preemergence first strike against yield-limiting waterhemp can give soybeans the early season boost needed to reach yield potential. A member of the pigweed family, waterhemp has the ability to produce at least 250,000 seeds per plant and is a serious competitor for sun, water and nutrients.
The best strategy to control waterhemp includes aggressive tillage and a program approach using preemergence and postemergence herbicides with multiple modes of action. Soybean growers can use Sonic® herbicide preemergence to control waterhemp into the growing season.
Sonic has been proven to provide 94 percent efficacy of waterhemp four weeks after application.1
