Where Fall Herbicide Applications May Fit

Gil Gullickson 11/12/2012 @ 4:20pm Crops Technology Editor for Successful Farming magazine/Agriculture.com

If your fields this fall look like a salad bowl of weeds, you may be considering a fall herbicide application. That’s particularly true if your fields were overrun by marestail this year.

“We really lost the battle on marestail this year,” says Bill Johnson, Purdue University Extension weeds specialist. “We have had glyphosate-resistant marestail for a decade, but this year was a complete train wreck.”

Marestail is a versatile weed, as it can double both as a fall and summer annual. That was the case for the marestail that infested Indiana fields during the 2012 growing season.
