Johnny's Blog
Burndown
March 23, 2015
We are probably about 5 weeks out from planting cotton.  Most of the acreage will be planted in May, but our kickoff for the planting season can occur if we get some pretty weather during that last week of April.  There are three herbicides options for our resistance management burndown program that require a safety window before planting.  The most common herbicide used with this waiting period is 2, 4-D primarily used for controlling Roundup Resistant horseweed.  While the label indicates this herbicide should be applied 30 days before planting to be safe to the cotton, we are comfortable pushing that waiting time back to 21 days with no concerns and even closer if the weather cooperates.  This means that the fields we are targeting to plant that last week of April would need to get a 2, 4-D application during the next couple of weeks.  The other commonly used burndown herbicide with a waiting period is dicamba which needs a 21 day waiting period prior to planting cotton.  There is slightly more safety with dicamba but most of us treat these two products the same as far a waiting interval.  One new development is that the new Extend technology for Deltapine varieties will not have a waiting period for planting following dicamba applications.  The third herbicide is Sharpen but has not been adopted in our region primarily due to a 42 day waiting period between application and planting.  It is very affective at controlling and preventing further emergence of horseweed.  However, most farmers will use either 2,4-D or dicamba and add Valor for the residual horseweed control.
