Protects other kochia plants! Kochia grows in tight patches, allowing the plants to provide coverage for each other, protecting at least a few plants against herbicide applications.
Starting out as cute, fuzzy little plants, kochia plants grow tall with many branches and will eventually become tumbleweeds, spreading seeds across the landscape. It grows better than most plants in saline conditions.
HOW TO DEFEAT THIS VILLAIN
Barley, Wheat, Canola – These saline-tolerant crops can compete with kochia.
Lentils – Kochia is more difficult to control in Clearfield® lentils and flax due to widespread Group 2 herbicide resistance.
- Cereals: Products with 2, 4-D in the formulation. New products tend to come with it as a co-pack.
- Authority® Supreme as a soil-applied pre-seed burn before peas;
- Lentils: Edge®
- Peas: Viper®
Watchout: Assume all kochia is Group 2 resistant, but also watch for Group 9 resistance.
You must use high water volumes when applying herbicide in-crop to penetrate plant hairs and to ensure you get through to every kochia plant in a patch.
Get ahead of emergence by using a soil-applied herbicide that will control the young plants as they emerge. You can also attack kochia in-crop if plants are missed pre-seed.
Always read and follow label directions.
