Straight liberty will not kill wild oats.
Maybe that's what happened to mine a few years ago. Reps summer student never gave me a answer, just a free box of centurion after swathing to close her case off. She said that they were very busy with claims that year. Tested my water, told me I should have sprayed it when warmer, mixed it wrong and every other excuse she could come up with. But nothing I did was wrong. Just didn't work right. RR canola now.Liberty fries the leaves off before the Centurion has time to work.
Had to go back and look again. Yes, you are right. It lists wild oats after quackgrass and I missed it!Andrew, the label says wild oats at 1.35 litre rate but does that mean anything in the real world? And if we always have to mix Centurion with Liberty then I am wondering if I want to be using up a goup 1 option in my canola or if it is primarily the liberty that is doing the killing and the centurion only gets the escapes...
yes I've wondered that too but worried about the efficacy of Liberty without a tankmixHad to go back and look again. Yes, you are right. It lists wild oats after quackgrass and I missed it!
Still thinking we should be splitting the 2 chemicals, but don't always have time for it.
Some quick math: Currently paying $9.30/ac for 1.35L/ac Liberty (that's $6.89/L) and $2.40/ac for 80ac/case Centurion. So that's $11.70/ac total. If the centurion efficacy is questionable, why not spray Liberty at the 1.6L/ac rate for a total of $11.02 and be money (and hopefully control) ahead???
I too have separated the Centurion from the Liberty by 4 or more days, works well, but time consuming. It has a good fit where the weather isn't conducive for Liberty, but the grasses are taking off.We're just two passing the liberty 1.6+1.35 and leaving the centurion in the box. 16gal water both times at 90psi.
