    There are always questions about what herbicide works the best on certain weeds.  In this demonstration we applied 4 chemical combinations to control both henbit and mustards growing in oats.  The application was made on November 7th using the applicator pictured.  Swaths of chemical were applied and 2 outside nozzles were turned off for a check between treatments.  Treatments were 4 ounces of Dicamba per acre in plot 1.  Plot 2 is 1.5 pints of MCPE per acre.  Plot 3 is 4 ounces of Dicamba with 12 ounces of 2,4-D per acre and the last or Plot 4 is .4 ounces of Affinity and 1 pint of MCPE per acre.  Evaluating the plots at two weeks showed the Dicamba with little effect, the MCPE and Dicamba/2,4-D with some effect but very slow and the Affinity/MCPE working very well.   Further evaluations will be done.
