No wonder that soybean growers in the Middle West are pleased with Alanap®-3 weed killer. In many test sections, a wido Variety of seeds and grasses appeared in the untreated area?— emphatic proof of Alanap-3's range of control. One grower said he saved two cultivations and one rotary hoeing in the Alanap* treated section. In the untreated section, weed seed raised tb* moisture content, thereby delaying harvesting. Alanap-3 kills weeds as they begin to sprout and before they emerge. It is so effective a pre-emergence herbicide for soybean crops that it allows you to increase your yield by 3 or 4 bushel* per acre, by knocking out weed competition. You can plant your crops earlier and harvest earlier. Equipment stays cleaner, then {• no chance of dockage.
