The cold weather is causing us to re-think our plan of fall spraying. We are considering reducing or eliminating our fall herbicide application: A spring burn-down will have to be applied before soybean and corn planting… but if we do not spray this fall, that application may cost a little more then, and it would have to be applied earlier. This cold weather now may decrease the effectiveness of the application. It’s a lot to figure out. Our fall spraying program has been working well for the past 4-5 years, but we need to reduce costs, too.
So, we are weighing the alternatives, along with the associated costs. Either way, the 4730 will have to be ‘winterized’ with RV antifreeze when it’s time to store for the winter.
