Last year was my first year with LL beans, this year have LLGT27's. Wanted to use a pre but timing became an issue, hard to get them sprayed when you only get one day at a time before a rain to put in beans. First pass ended up being RR and Warrant, I figure I'll need a second pass with Liberty later to clean up... Horrible year for weed control already, repeat of last year.
Last year the Liberty worked great except for one field that didn't get a pre and had 1 ft.+ lambsquarters in it, the Liberty didn't hit the bottom branch so it came back later. Its a good herbicide but does have its limits, at least here lambsquarters come out early and Roundup still works on them, but need something else for waterhemp. Flexstar won't kill half the waterhemp on my farm anymore either, so that option doesn't work either.
Liberty is weak on LQ. Run either Cadet or Resource with Liberty to improve control on LQ. Better option would be to run 2.4 oz Anthem Maxx with Liberty.
