Spring Weed War Underway…….2012
The Spring weed war is under way a few weeks early. Musk Thistle are starting to
bolt. It will not be long before we need to switch Herbicide from Rozzette Stage
to Bolting stage.
Leafy Spurge is from flower stage to ….just coming up. Most of the Leafy Spurge
that was sprayed last fall with a good product is not showing up this spring
which cheapens up the spring control cost and leaves more time
to control new patches.
With a months head start on the spring work, maybe more control will be done at the
appropriate time as timing is the key to good weed control.
Mark your calandars…..August 1st and 2nd…… to attend the Leafy Spurge
Task Force Tour and Conference as it is shaping up to be a good one. The
test plots on fall spraying of Leafy Spurge should be beneficial to all.
With that said, GOOD LUCK with your spring work.
