How Not to Injure Peas

Jun 15, 2017 | 23:01 1 Looks like my peas will be around 6 nodes when I hit them with Viper. Plan on using 10 gallons of water and a full shot of UAN. What else can I do to minimize injury? Reply With Quote

Im not joking if the plants here its going to get cold or someone mentions its cold the chem will set them back or kill them.

Were in same boat but lucky fields are clean of broadleaf weeds might just go assure and say WTF. If it rains all weekend. Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 06:58 3 we have been going 80 ac jug with pursuit /centurion last 3 years , doesn't hurt them at all ? how come nobody uses pursuit anymore ? Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 07:06 4 I believe Pursuit has come out of favor because of residue and canola in the rotation. This field will be canola in 2018. Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 07:12 5 My supplier feels residual in the soil from pursuit is the reason he recommends against using it. No canola the next year unless you grow clear field which only compounds the problem. As for Viper only damage I have had is sprayer overlaps and if the peas are too big. Reply With Quote

we did that this year , seeded 45h76 clearfield canola (our best yielder 3 years running)and will spray with something other than pursuit Reply With Quote

Just checked them and no visual above ground signs of root rot(furrowtickler is scaring me), but with nearly two inches of rain and the potential for more before the soil has a chance to dry down a bit we could be seeing something(root rot) start up here too.

Never a dull moment. Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 12:20 9 We started with a cocktail of authority, pursuit and glyphosate as a preburn then a shot of clethodim in crop. Just missed a few dandelions on the corners where the boom tip was doing 40mph lol Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 17:40 10 Add releaf. Would be like the ca/mg thing.
Great results around here. Reply With Quote

Jun 16, 2017 | 17:57 12 I would put P3 from Omex in when I sprayed odyssey and they would never stop growing and would stay green. Before that odyssey would stop growth and they would turn yellow. I just hate it when you pay good money to knock the crap out of your crop and the chem company just says "don't worry they will grow out of it in a week or two and the yield won't be affected". Hahaha that's a good one.
This was back when I used to grow peas, since the wet years started I had to give up peas. Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 18:20 13 we have been using a very low rate of Phantom (knock off pursuit), like 160 to 200 acres a jug and either assure or centurion. Has done a great job on volunteer canola which in our rotation is the prior crop and we always plant cereals after peas. We have had just as good control as the viper guys IMO for a fraction of the price and very easy on the crop even if sprayed later.

we had experienced issues in winter wheat and follow cereals using solo so did not like the idea of viper. With sectional control and now aimpro to mitigate overlap and provide turn compensation we have seen no impact on canola in our rotation, and yes I lived through the early pursuit days and the residue effects when Clearfield canola was the big play in our part of the world.

my two cents worth on the topic, we would rather spend the money on fungicide or something else all together, dyodd, and good luck Reply With Quote

Jun 16, 2017 | 20:53 15 Thanks for all the responses. Peas are next, once I yank the sprayer out of the quagmire.. Sounds like time for some trials. Reply With Quote
Jun 16, 2017 | 20:59 16 There is releaf pulse and releaf canola. I think p3 is ok, we have gotten just a little better results with releaf.
We have gotten inconsistent results with the canola product on canola Reply With Quote
Klause's Avatar Jun 16, 2017 | 21:32 17 Releaf pulse is what we use also Reply With Quote
Jun 17, 2017 | 07:38 18 Price per acre for releaf at 1l/ac? Reply With Quote
farmaholic's Avatar Jun 17, 2017 | 07:40 19 I believe I was quoted $8 for Releaf P, anyone else? Reply With Quote
Jun 17, 2017 | 08:18 20 I found p3 did absolutely nothing here in 5 years of side by side trials. Might depend a lot on soil chemistry.

High water volumes do make a huge difference here, as well as timing. If it's going to be very hot (over 27 and sunny for a couple days, then don't spray. Wait for a couple days where it's 23-25 C.

15 gal/ac caused way less yellowing for me vs 10. Reply With Quote
Klause's Avatar Jun 18, 2017 | 11:02 21 Releaf P, lite of liquid P, liter of Humic liquid, viper ADV, assure II without the surfactant, and 18 GPA water through twinjet tips.


Fields are clean and peas grow like a mofo. Reply With Quote
