What’s true for sports is also true for soybeans—the season really is won before it even starts. To win, it takes preparation. It takes the work you put into your weed control program. It takes attacking that early, unwanted pigweed by upgrading to a pre-emergent with a powerful, long-lasting residual like Zidua® PRO Herbicide from BASF.
Zidua® Pro Herbicide
Dominating early-season weeds is vital when defending soybean yield, as weeds can directly reduce yield by competing for light, moisture and nutrients. Running a pre-emergent residual play can help defend yield when weather or workload delays post-emergent herbicide applications.
When tough weeds cause unexpected blocked shots, you need consistent control and flexibility in your crop protection game plan. A two-week delay in planting could impact soybean yield up to 8.82 bu/A.2
With Zidua® PRO herbicide, there’s no soybean-planting interval in most soils. You can plant your beans and spray Zidua PRO herbicide the same day — something you can’t do with some other herbicides.
Zidua PRO herbicide provides up to three- to five-times faster burndown than 2,4-D ester or glyphosate alone on tough broadleaf weeds.3
When you’re up against a tough opponent like broadleaf weeds, you need a powerful playmaker. A tough pre-emergent like Zidua PRO herbicide delivers, giving you up to two weeks longer residual than competitive products.1 The result? Your home field stays cleaner, longer on any trait platform.
A great offense against broadleaf weeds starts with a consistent defense. A powerful pre-emergent like Zidua PRO herbicide takes this philosophy to a whole new level. With its convenient premix formulation and no planting restrictions on most soils, you can depend on Zidua PRO herbicide to deliver a successful season against tough opponents.
Weed resistance is an opponent that is only getting tougher. Relying on only a single, post-emergent herbicide site of action is no longer sustainable for boxing out resistant weeds.
Full-court pressing with a pre-emergent herbicide with residual will not only reduce early-season weed pressure for more consistent post-emergent herbicide coverage, but also extend your application window.
Dishing out multiple sites of action to reduce selection pressure for resistant weeds is essential for your weed control game plan.
The three sites of action in Zidua PRO herbicide delivers sustainability in the battle against weed resistance, as well as broad-spectrum weed control, including residual for grass and broadleaf weeds.
Zidua PRO herbicide is a game changer for most soybean systems as it works with Roundup Ready®, LibertyLink®, non-GMO and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend®, XtendFlex®, Enlist E3®, and in conventional tillage, no-till and reduced-till systems.
