How will your Soybean Field look at Harvest? W eeds cost you real money at harvest. One pre-emergence application of Amiben at planting can help you gain an extra 3 to 9 bu. per acre. Amiben eliminates weed competition for moisture, plant food and light throughout the growing season. But more than that, it saves you money at harvest. Weed free beans mature more uniformly— have lower moisture content. You don't have to wait for a freeze to kill out the weeds before you go into the field with your combine. When beans are weed free you don't have to hit the stalks hard with the combine reel—just touch them, with AMIBEN weed control. This means not only less power and easier going, but less loss from shattering. Experts say that in weedy fields from 3 to 5 bu. of beans wind up on the ground. Add to this, time lost when grasses pile up on the sickle—and it all comes down to the fact that weedy beans not only cost more to harvest, more to dry—but, you get lower quality beans, Jess of them—and get less for them. It's just plain good sense to avoid weeds in the first place—and the best way to do this is with Amiben—for full season control of most annual broadleaf weeds and grasses with one application when you plant.
