Weed Control in Oats

Post date: Nov 22, 2012 3:18:43 PM

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.
