AMIBEN Herbicides-Your Road To Better Soybean Yields How to get 3 to 9 extra bushels per acre with 5 CORRECT TIMING ' early planting—care in harvesting before beans shatter. THESE 2 BIG STEPS MAKE THE OTHER 5 PAY OFF AMIBEN WEED CONTROL If you follow good soybean management practices, Amiben weed control can pay for itself many times over. Here are the 7 easy steps to higher bean yields and profits. | ADAPTED SEED VARIETY '• for your day length or latitude, with proper seed innoculation. 2 SOIL TESTING > pH adjustment; addition of correct amount of N, K and P if called for after test. 3 PROPER PLANTING DEPTH • for your soil —and correct plant population to obtain good stand. 4 PROPER EQUIPMENT i well maintained and adjusted for planting and harvesting. Clean out sprayers carefully—check nozzles- calibrate. 6 GOOD SEED BED PREPARATION • No clods, crop trash or foreign materials. Preparing a smooth seed bed is especially necessary. If seed bed is not smooth, skips can occur when using any pesticide, liquid or granular. 7 AMIBEN i for control of both broadleaf weeds and grasses. Based upon an average price of $2.47 per bushel to the grower, Amiben banded at the 2 Ib. rate recommended for most soils, returns to many farmers enough to pay for the herbicide about 2 to 6 times over. And that's real profit for any grower whose management practices are good enough so that superb weed control can make the big difference. See your dealer today for Amiben —No. 1 in soybeans by a wide margin—because it controls most annual broadleaf weeds and grasses with one pre-emergence application at planting—leaves no soil residue to affect rotational crops. Available as liquid concentrate or in granular form. first namt in herbicide nntrch "You lose about 1'j bushels an acre for every inch you have to raise the cutter bar above ground level; and you have to raise the bar to get the combine through weedy rows," says Charles V. Simpson. Simpson is a director of the American Soybean Association and grows soybeans on his own Tetonka Farms at Waterville, Minnesota. He uses Amiben to control giant foxtail, pigweed, smartweed, velvet leaf and other noxious weeds. What's your weed problem? Low soybean yields? Shattering at harvest? Field losses? Dockage charges because of weed seed in the crop? "You've got Amiben weed control in there working for you if it's too wet to get in to cultivate," say the Saathoff Brothers, Cliff (1.) and Binks (r.), Rembrant, Iowa. Want to hear how the Saathoffe broadcast Amiben in a minimum tillage test plot? Hear how other growers used soil incorporation during dry weather? H. Forrest Ridgley, Oakley, Illinois, claims that soybeans treated with Amiben herbicide yielded 3,8 more bushels per acre than soybeans on non- treated acreage. This occurred during a year when only ',-J inch of rain fell during the entire growing season. " By killing off weed competition in the. crop row," says Ridgley, "soybean* were able to utilize a greater amount of what little moisture there was available."
