Post-emergence herbicide controls volunteer corn

For many soybean growers, little is more aggravating than watching volunteer corn plants pop up above the soybean canopy. However, recent research indicates that volunteer Bt corn can be much more than an eyesore; it may post a serious threat to the long-term viability of insect-resistant corn hybrids.

While volunteer corn's potential to rob soybeans of water, nutrients, sunlight and yield potential has been documented for years, the threat of insect resistance heightens the need for effective, early-season volunteer corn control.

Gowan Company now offers Targa post-emergence herbicide, with the active ingredient Quizalofop-p-ethyl. Along with controlling both glyphosate-tolerant and conventional volunteer corn in soybeans, Targa also controls perennial grasses such as Johnsongrass, quackgrass and bermudagrass. Additionally, it can be tank-mixed easily with glyphosate for one-pass control of most grasses and broadleaf weeds.
