Don't Ignore Weeds Between Now & December

Dr. Daniel Stephenson, Extension Weed Scientist, LSU AgCenter

It’s not hard to notice how green corn fields are following harvest, and we all know what that color means: weeds. Managing weeds post-harvest is not popular with farmers; however, weed seed production and subsequent seed deposition on the soil should be a great concern, especially if glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth and/or waterhemp are present.
