Weed Control

Armor Dove Pro seed products utilize the Clearfield® Production System trait, which is produced with conventional breeding for use with Beyond® herbicide to control post-emergent weeds.

This is a great option for no-till or minimum-till sunflower areas, or fields containing weeds that are hard to control with other herbicides.

  • Burndown: Burndown with 22 oz Roundup PowerMAX® (0.77 acid equivalent glyphosate)/acre and disk prior to planting
  • Pre-emerge at seeding: Burndown with 22 oz Roundup PowerMAX® (0.77 acid equivalent glyphosate)/acre after planting and prior to sunflower emergence
  • Post-emerge: Apply 4 oz/acre Beyond® herbicide (Imazamox) when sunflowers reach 2-8 leaf stages – earlier in that window will provide better control than later
