ProVision Partners Helps Farmers Combat Resistant Weeds

Three individuals with extensive agricultural backgrounds recently joined the Provision Partners Cooperative spraying team for the 2019 application season.

Kevin Spindler, Kurt Meyer, and Gene Zimmerman may be new to the spray team, but are not new to the industry.

“They all have great agricultural backgrounds and some have experience in spray application,” said Tom Hoffman, Agronomy Division Manager. “We’re happy to have them join our 12-applicator crew as they continue to provide customers with good spraying and custom application services at Auburndale, Stratford, and Unity.”

As Roundup ® resistant weeds, such as Waterhemp and Palmer Amaranth, continue to appear in our Central Wisconsin area, Hoffman encourages farmers to do whatever is necessary to control these resistant weed species before the problem becomes severe.

According to Hoffman, applying the correct pre-emergent herbicides labeled for the control of Waterhemp and Palmer Amaranth is the best strategy for trying to control these glyphosate resistant species.

“If you know you have a problem, consult your Provision Partners Agronomist to make plans to control these species before they emerge and your soybeans emerge,” he said.
