Raptor for Soybeans

Raptor (imazamox) has received clearance for use in soybeans. However, very little will be available in 1997 in Illinois. Raptor has better grass and lambsquarters control than Pursuit and has a shorter soil life. Raptor will be preferred by vegetable crop and grain sorghum growers due to its shorter persistence. More information will follow when we receive a label.
