Has anyone used ****** as their corn post? Thinking about trying some but would like some feedback.

We tried it last year in a rescue spray. We had pigweed & grass escapes in one field but couldn't get to it until corn was around 36-40". Agronomist suggested we try Laudis and in with some Dicamba to help "safen" the Dicamba. Smarter people than me on here can tell you if that's an accurate assessment or not. So we turned our nozzles to a 30" pattern and sprayed between the rows. We used 3oz Laudis, 8oz Dicamba DMA, 32oz Buccaneer 5, & 16oz Atrazine 4L.It cleaned up where we sprayed really well. We left 80acres alone thinking that part wasn't that bad. Yield difference was 30-50bu lower in that 80 acres vs what we sprayed. Lesson learned. Spray the whole field, not just part of it. Would we see that dramatic of a result every time? I have no idea, but we were impressed with how the Laudis helped clean up the weeds. Might be more cost effective options for that stage but that's what we used. Hoping to not ever be in that situation again but I'm sure we will at some point.

What was the cost per ac using laudis?

We paid $3.08/oz last year. Bought from the local coop. So a 3oz rate ran us $9.24/ac just for the Laudis. Maybe could have used Status or diflexx or something else for a lower overall cost than the mix we used. Again, I don’t recommend using it that late but it was effective.
