Pasture Weed Field Day 2008
Wednesday, October 15th, 2008
Are you battling soft rush or blackberry? How do you remove sedges (watergrass) from forages while ensuring forage safety? What herbicides are available for pasture weed control? Is that weed poisonous? How can we fertilize economically? How good is Mulato as a forage? These are all questions we ask. Every year we are challenged with new questions, problems, and sometimes, new weeds. It is our goal to help you find an economical approach to weed control in your pastures.
Controlling weeds can be a problem, and optimum weed control will depend on the particular weed species, the environment, weed age and size, as well as time of year. We hope to share some information concerning pasture weed control at this field day.
