Whether or not resistant
weeds are currently
present, having an
integrated approach to
weed control can mean the
difference to bottom lines.
Weeds Reduce Tree Health and Crop Quality
Weeds compete with trees and vines for nutrients, water and light and can impact yield and hinder harvesting practices. Weeds can even compete with target plants for uptake of insecticides and other chemicals, making the crop more susceptible to insects and disease. While cultural and mechanical practices can provide some help in managing weed pressures, most growers utilize herbicides to deal with major threats. Whether or not resistant weeds are currently present, having an integrated approach to weed control can mean the difference to bottom lines.
Weed Resistance to Glyphosate
Key weeds present in orchards and vineyards have been found to be resistant to glyphosate. A best practice to slow down weed resistance to herbicides includes using multiple effective modes of action in your pre- and post-emergent herbicide sprays.
Together, Alion® and Rely® offer versatile application
approaches to ensure you start and stay weed-free.
Keep crop safety in mind when selecting a weed management program. Choose pre- and post-emergent herbicides that provide excellent season-long weed control without impact on roots, fruit or plant vigor.
Alion® and Rely® 280 weed program from Bayer are complementary pre- and post-emergent herbicide for tree nuts, grapes, citrus, and pome/stone fruits that effectively eliminate tough grass and broadleaf weeds with long-lasting residual control and excellent crop safety. Together, Alion and Rely offer versatile application approaches to ensure you start and stay weed-free.
