Downy brome is a growing problem for wheat producers across the Northern Plains. It has the roughly the same life cycle as winter wheat, but it matures more rapidly and continues to grow at low temperatures even after winter wheat has gone dormant. This gives it a competitive edge in the spring and winter wheat is unable to catch up before harvest. The use of PRE-PARE burndown herbicide with glyphosate can make a significant difference in your yield and your bottom line.
Research demonstrates that the yield increase from adding PRE-PARE to your glyphosate burndown can boost yields by 5 bushels an acre. At $6.00 per bushel, that's $30.00 per acre. Glyphosate in burndown is $2 per acre (on average). Adding PRE-PARE for winter wheat to glyphosate is $7.50 per acre (on average). Subtract the cost of PRE-PARE and you have a $22.50 profit.
