Weed control is critical to advanced sugarbeet production. Proper timing and responsible herbicide usage are critical to short-term and long-term profitability. Being timely with herbicide applications is essential as the greatest opportunities to control weeds is when they are small, even when using Roundup®/Glyphosate.
Using only Roundup® throughout crop rotations can be a recipe for disaster. Combat weed resistance by scouting fields to identify escapes, tank mix herbicides with different modes of action (MOA), and rotate herbicide MOA in consecutive years. Good crop rotations help accomplish this, and having wheat or barley is also beneficial. The main goal is to prevent weed seed production.
