Practicing good weed
management stewardship

By Mike Veenema CCA-ON

AGRIS Co-operative - Chatham

Soon we will be planning to head to the fields and often the first task for row crops is controlling weeds.  Usually a two-pass system with a burn-down and a residual with effective multiple modes of action, followed in crop for a cleanup pass is a good start for your weed control strategy.  Depending on the cropping system, some aggressive tillage may also be an option.
