Abstract/Contents:"For many years, 2,4-DB,[4-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy) butanoic acid], formulated as the dimethylamine salt (liquid) has been tank mixed with other soybean postemergence (POST) herbicides to aid in control of broadleaf weeds. One major limitation of applying liquid 2,4-DB to indeterminate soybean varieties has been possible plant injury and subsequent yield reductions. Generally liquid 2, 4-DB rates have been limited to < 0.5 oz ai./A (2 oz/A of liquid formulated product) to minimize potential soybean injury. Field trials were conducted during a two-year period (1998-99) comparing two 2,4-DB formulations to determine different responses of indeterminate soybeans, visual broadleaf weed control, and impact on soybean yield. The dimethylamine salt (liquid) was compared to the 2, 4-DB acid formulation (dry). Several studies included 2,4-DB formulations tank mixed with glyphosate. During all field trials, the dry 2,4-DB formulation applied at 0.5 oz ai./A did not produce some soybean stem epinasty, occasional shortening of main stem internodes or slight reduction in blooms. At equivalent rates, the dry formulation provided improved broadleaf weed control compared to the liquid formulation. The addition of dry 2,4-DB at 0.5 oz ai./A to glyphosate at 1 lb ai./A improved control of common ragweed, velvetleaf, tall waterhemp, and morningglory species compared to glyphosate applied alone. Soybean yields were not reduced in any field trial where the dry formulation was applied at 0.5 oz ai./A. Where broadleaf weed pressure was moderate, the addition of 2,4-DB to the tank mixture improved weed control and subsequently increased soybean yield."
