Description

Once forages are established, they are seldom treated with herbicides. This is in sharp contrast to row crops like com and soybeans where 90% of the acreage receives au herbicide. How should we view the fact that herbicides are not widely used in forages? What will be the trends for weed management in the seeding year? Today's forage producers are placing significant emphasis on forage quality. What implication do these have for how we manage weeds in forages in the future? Will the limited use of herbicides in established forages increase significantly? Let's first review the weed management options in the seeding phase, and then the established stand phase of a forage production system
