We also finsihed spraying our corn with the last of the two-pass herbicide program. As the weather has warmed up the weeds are becoming harder to kill as they focus on conserving moisture and growing through the heat. We use additives in our herbicides to breakdown the weed's cuticle (leaf's outside waxy coating) which help to get the weeds to absorb the chemicals faster; even through hot weather.
It needs to rain here soon...
