My only concern with late crop spraying is what residuals remain in the seeds (is that a concern for anyone?) since most say you should wait 60 days before harvest.
I always look at that and wonder why they always put that on the label. Achieve is a good product and it is the last gun to shoot off on group 1 resistance. Fop and Den are the most common resistant Group 1 I believe. I think you spray a group 2 twice on the resistant strains and you are pretty well finished on group 2. JMO
I have gone to avadex and FMC products. Although expensive, I can't see myself ever putting on edge at $25/acre as a powder blowing in the wind from a Valmar applicator in SW Saskatchewan. I have had no success with Edge although I have never put it on with a heavy harrow - really don't want the land to blow away as I break up the little surface straw I have in the last drought years. Again, JMO.
I have to agree with everyone, you can't miss an opportunity to spray. That clump of kochia that you didn't wipe out can be the one that spreads throughout your field and resistant to everything known to man!
It is not What you know, it is WHO you know that counts! Currency is a UNIT of debt - not value!
