Pea Herbicides

Weed control options remain limited for processing peas. Pursuit, at 1.5 to 2.0 fluid ounces per acre, needs to be used as a pre-plant incorporated or preemergence treatment and is used primarily for broadleaf weeds. Preemergence applications of Command at 8 to 16 fl oz or Dual at 0.5 to 1 pt/A are labeled for control of annual grasses and some broadleaf weeds. Basagran and Thistrol are labeled for postemergence control of broadleaf weeds. Apply Basagran at 1.5 to 2 pints per acre after peas have more than three pairs of leaves. Do not add oil concentrate. Select, Assure II, Targa, or Poast can be used for postemergence grass control.
