Carefully monitor weed pressure and try to spray corn for weeds before they exceed 4” tall, as weed pressure can have a dramatic impact on potential corn yield.
If using Liberty herbicide, use drops if corn is above knee high. A good herbicide with residual control of waterhemp is recommended. If you used Glyphosate “GT or RR” tolerant corn last year which did not contain Liberty Tolerance and this year you have Liberty tolerance in your corn, spray Liberty now to remove volunteer corn (VC) as VC can significantly affect yield and rootworm control, even in corn carrying the RW gene.
Miller Hybrids is one of only a few companies that continue to carry elite Liberty Link corn.
