Gary, I think your theory is correct. When I started using roundup I would spray one application of full rate early to take out that first flush of weeds. When it was time for the second application my crop was big enough that I would take out the next flush of weeds with the cultivator instead of spray. That way I could achieve the many other benefits of cultivation and kill the weeds. Needless to say there are always some weeds escape the cult. I thought noway am I going to spray a second time just to get that dozen weeds in the 40 acre field. As a result I believe I was one of the first in the area to have gly. resistant weeds. It got so bad that like I said in an earlier post, I had to switch to Liberty crops.

I think too many people have forgotten about pre emerge herbicides. I plant Roundup Ready corn,but I spray pre with Prowl and Atrazine. I only used 5 gallons of Roundup this year to clean up escapes. Mostly yellow nutsedge on low ground. Atrazine doesn't do a real bang up job on that. It's just nice to know I can clean up with glyphosate if I need to.
