Get a head start: manage marestail in the fall

Sponsored Content

Weed scientists agree marestail is one weed growers may want to take control of and get a jump on managing in the fall.

As corn and soybean harvest wrap, growers should start scouting for winter annuals, primarily marestail.

This tough, resistant to glyphosate and ALS-inhibiting herbicides weed is a surface germinating, facultative winter annual weed, meaning no-till operations, where there is not much surface disruption, is an ideal place for it to germinate.

Fall herbicide application of a 2,4-D product is recommended as a base treatment.
