In the U.S., hophornbeam copperleaf is mostly found in the Midwest, Mid-South and South. This summer annual emerges after most farmers have made their postemergence herbicide applications. Even when herbicides are applied at all the right times, this species can flourish in fields. Because it tends to emerge days or weeks after soybeans emerge, it is less likely to affect yield. This fact sheet describes soil-applied and foliar-applied herbicides that might help in the control of hophornbeam copperleaf.
