When should the Roundup® herbicide be applied to Genuity® Roundup Ready® Alfalfa?
Unsurpassed weed control and crop safety starts with flexible application timing. For production management, ask for the America’s Alfalfa Genuity® Roundup Ready® Alfalfa Management Guide booklet. Always start with a weed-free field. In no-till and reduced-till systems, apply a herbicide burndown application to control existing weeds at least 1 to 2 weeks before planting. In both newly seeded and established stands, to preserve the yield and quality potential of forage and hay, applications should be made after weeds have emerged, but before alfalfa growth or re-growth interferes with application spray coverage of the target weeds. Research data indicates for the most effective stand establishment, a single application of a Roundup® herbicide at the seedling stage should be applied when your alfalfa is in the 3 to 4 trifoliate stage. Due to the genetic diversity of alfalfa, a small percentage of the seedlings are susceptible and will not survive the first application of Roundup®. An application in the 6 to 9 trifoliate stage will set up your crop for superior quality harvest. Refer to your crop protection dealer for latest recommendation for Roundup® herbicide.
