Is your land ready for spring planting season?
Most no-till fields are now covered with henbit, chickweed, ryegrass, marestail, and other winter annuals and perennials. If you made an application of Leadoff® in December or January, you are probably in pretty good shape right now. If not, it’s time to start cleaning up your winter weeds.
Some key factors to consider:
- Assume that all marestail and primrose are resistant to glyphosate. To clean these up, use Amine 2,4-D 1 qt/A or Dicamba 8 oz/A.
- It is easier to kill marestail in March while it is still in the rosette stage. Waiting until the middle of April to make an application on marestail that is over 4-6 inches tall can mean 50% control at best.
Don’t let winter weeds delay your spring planting season any longer. Let’s get off to a great start for 2015.
