Growers share their top straight cut varieties and inputs

Growers and Cargill agronomists share tried-and-true products for different straight cutting strategies.

When you want to try straight cutting for the first time:

Growers have seen InVigor® L233P withstand tough conditions like wind and hail and still deliver impressive yields. It provides great flexibility on harvest timing.

When you want to straight cut and control tough weeds:

DKTF 96 SC has given growers the opportunity for season-long quackgrass control because TruFlex™ technology allows for an in-season glyphosate application.

When you want to straight cut and manage clubroot:

The new InVigor L345PC has the strong pod shatter trait that many growers are familiar with, plus clubroot resistance.

When you want to keep your options open:

DEKALB®’s DK 75-65 RR is a little taller, so it’s easier to harvest. Growers have the option of either straight cutting or swathing at 80% maturity.

When you want to manage perennial weeds pre-harvest: 

Growers can keep weed seed and green weeds out of the combine by tank mixing Heat® LQ plus glyphosate. 

When you want to harvest earlier: 

Apply a desiccant like Reglone® Ion when 90% of the seeds have turned brown. It will dry down green material in the field so that growers can combine more easily and with less clogging.
