How to Manage Cattails in Corn and Soybeans

Gil Gullickson 06/18/2013 @ 10:28am Crops Technology Editor for Successful Farming magazine/Agriculture.com

Cattail control in corn and soybeans probably doesn’t rank as high as control of the waterhemps and marestails of the world with which you’ve wrestled in recent years.

Yet, this spring’s rampant rainfall gives this aquatic weed an opening in your corn and soybean fields. I snapped this picture in my family’s field near Claremont, South Dakota, last year. 

Fortunately, this cattail in soybeans was a minor annoyance. (The 15-acre strip of water filled with cattails, ducks and mosquitoes that ran across the field in 2010 and 2011 was a lot more annoying.)
