Early-season brome species can significantly reduce your winter wheat yield potential. In fact, independent studies show if downy brome emerges within 14 days of a winter wheat crop, it can reduce yields by 10 to 20 percent. Early control of brome grasses is a critical first step toward protecting your winter wheat yields.
The first step for managing brome grasses is PRE-PARE® Burndown Herbicide. Adding PRE-PARE to your glyphosate controls existing and early-emerging bromes for up to 21 days. PRE-PARE also protects against other key grasses and broadleaf weeds that can rob valuable moisture and nutrients from young wheat, giving winter wheat the important head start it needs.
