Get on the fast lane to harvest. With the perfect pre-harvest.
Late germinating weeds and green tissue can spell trouble at harvest. That’s where a pre-harvest herbicide comes in. It speeds up the rate of dry down, improving crop uniformity and harvest efficiency – but proper timing is key. Once applied, a pre-harvest herbicide will immediately begin to dry down the crop. Applied too early, it can affect yield, reduce seed size and exceed maximum residue limits.

Telltale signs that your soybeans are ready.
Be sure to scout regularly as the crop starts to mature. For soybeans, apply your pre-harvest herbicide when 90% of the pods have turned colour, where the lower pods are mainly brown and upper pods are yellow-brown or gray in some varieties.
Applied pre-harvest, Heat® LQ speeds up crop and weed dry down to improve uniformity, harvestability and storability. Tank mix with glyphosate for control of broadleaf and perennial weeds, and work towards a cleaner start next season.
- Weed dry down 4-22 days after treatment
Soybeans aren’t traditionally grown in the Prairies, but new, early-maturing varieties have led to a steep rise in interest and growth of this crop. Learn about major production challenges, and explore innovative solutions designed to maximize yield at every stage of your operation.
