Weeds and brush in pastures restrict grazing and reduce forage yields. When these undesirable plants take over, grass and, ultimately, beef production suffer. Although mechanical control methods may temporarily appear to do the job, they are labor intensive and costly. The herbicides outlined in this guide provide quick-acting, proven control that will kill weeds all the way down to the roots. They also provide some residual control to stop weeds that germinate shortly after applications. Controlling weeds and brush in your pasture will help you grow more grass — the lowest cost feed for cattle.
EVegetationManager products can help you maintain contol of your land against weeds and brush, keeping your cattle safe and maintaing crops. Some great products we offer are:

Shipping: Reward cannot ship to all states.
Important: The Reward label recommends a surfactant when used for Duckweed control. Order DyneAmic Surfactant when ordering Reward.
Diquat, which is sold under the trade name of Reward, is used at 1 gallon per surface acre. It is diluted in 50 to 150 gallons of water per acre and sprayed directly on the floating plants. A nonionic surfactant, which can be purchased at most places that sell Reward, must be added to the Reward /water solution as directed on the Reward label. Reward is a contact herbicide. That means it immediately causes the plant tissue it comes into contact with to turn brown. Because duckweed and watermeal plants are so small, a single Reward treatment will seldom make contact with and kill all the plants. In addition, Reward does not persist in the water; it is typically gone from the water column by 7 to 10 days after treatment. Therefore, any plants that survive the initial treatment will start to regrow in a few days. A typical scenario after treatment with Reward is that many of the plants will turn brown and sink but the survivors will regrow and again cover the pond. Several treatments of Reward usually have to be made in a single season to keep a pond relatively free of duckweed or watermeal. Treatments should begin as soon as the plants start to grow in the spring or early summer in order to keep ahead of the growth. It is helpful to treat when the wind has pushed the plants to one end of the pond; the spray should be concentrated on the plants in that area. However, do not forget to spray small patches that may still be floating on other parts of the pond or washed up along the banks. Multiple treatments of Reward can successfully control duckweed; unfortunately, they seldom give effective control of watermeal.

Know your Herbicides
Preemergence & Postemergence
herbicides are applied before the weeds sprout through the soil surface.
Generally speaking, to control warm-season annual weeds, apply a pre-emergence
herbicide in early spring (January to March) before the soil temperature has
warmed to 55 degrees F.
For weeds that tend to sprout throughout the summer, a
second application may be required in June or July.
To control cool-season annual weeds, apply a pre-emergence herbicide in early fall (August to September). It is difficult to target a particular calendar date for
preemergence applications due to variable soil temperature and moisture
conditions from year to year.
herbicides are applied after weeds have sprouted.
They are most effective when weeds are still small: less than 4 inches high. Some herbicides (ex.; atrazine, simazine, dithiopyr) have both postemergence and preemergence activity if they reach the soil through direct contact or by washing off the foliage.
Herbicide Simazine 90DF herbicide actually controls a wide variety of grass weeds and annual broadleaf which is used at selective rates in agricultural crops and ornamental plantings. The herbicide Simazine is permissible for use on: Apples, Almonds, Avocados, Blueberries, Cherries (Sour & Sweet), Corn, Grapefruit, Loganberries, Olives, Pears, Plums, Raspberries, More!, Blackberries, Boysenberries, Christmas Tree Plantings, Cranberries, Currants, Dewberries, Filberts, Grapes, Lemons, Macadamia Nuts, Oranges, Peaches, Pecans, and Strawberries, The herbicide controls a wide variety of annual broadleaf and grass weeds when used at selective rates in agricultural crops and the ornamental plantings
All About the Weeds We Live With Everyday
Our attempts to beautify our outdoor living areas with
landscaping and well maintained lawns can often become a struggle when
uninvited plants move in. We humans often call these plants ‘weeds’’. In this
article we review what weeds are and important information in weed management.
So, what are weeds? Weeds can be defined as a plant out of
place. There is no definitive plant classification called ‘weeds’. It can be
said one man’s weed is another man’s pride and joy. Once a plant begins to grow
in an area where it is unwanted, it becomes a weed. What can separate weeds though from many of our cultivated plants is the quantity and size of seeds, the life span, dormancy length, and vegetative reproduction. Some rhizomes can remain dormant for decades and become renewed during tilling or other methods that disturb the rhizome.
You may even wonder how that weed got into your carefully
planned garden. Weeds are exceptional at finding means of mobility. Animals and
birds carry seeds on their fur, or may drop seeds in their feces. Strong winds
can carry delicate seeds into neighboring areas. Rains and flooding can also
act as a method of transportation for seeds. Runners and rhizomes on weeds
allow for continuous creeping into unattended areas. Humans can also be blamed
for spreading weed through distribution of impure seed, weedy hay, compost or
mulch, irrigations systems and machinery. As you can see, weeds have numerous
methods to ensure their survival, regardless of human interference.
Weeds can be classified into several groups just like our
plants can. It is important that you are able to identify the type of weed that
you have because it does affect the type of control method that can be used to
remove the weed from your yard. Weeds can be grasses, broadleaf, sedge or rush.
Grass weeds are ‘monocot’s’, meaning that they have only one seed leaf that
emerges when the new plant grows. Their leaves have veins that run parallel to
the central stem and their roots are fibrous.
An example of a grass weed is crabgrass. Broadleaf weeds are ‘dicot’s’
and have two seed leaves when the new plant emerges. They have a central
‘taproot’ that extend straight down into the soil, netted type veining on their
leaves and they produce showy flowers. Virginia Button weed is an example of a
broad leaf weed. The ever popular sedge weed can be distinguished from grass
weeds by the fact that the stem is triangular, even though they look very much
alike. Sedge’s, also called nutgrass, produce leaves in ‘3’s’. Purple Nutsedge
is an example of a sedge weed. Rush weeds look very much like grasses but have
a round stem which is solid. They do not have ’nodes’ like grasses and leaves
are very spike like.
Weed identification will help you locate the chemical
control product for your specific weed. If you are trying to manage weeds in a
lawn or in a garden, you don’t want to kill the plants that you are
cultivating. There are control products made specifically for broad leaves that
will not kill grasses. Sedge killer products have also been developed that can
isolate killing sedges. There are also grass products that can be used that
will not kill your broad leaf plants. Take the time to correctly identify your
weed and locate the appropriate weed killer for your problem. It will save you
time, money, and the stress of having to tell your spouse that you are
responsible for murdering the rose bush.
One of our favorite weed control product to use around your home or garden is Roundup Quick Pro, Concentrated, and easy to apply…. this product is effective! Easy to mix, available in packs to mix quickly and make easy job of your weed control.
SUMMARY: The key to managing weeds is in correct identification and appropriate control choice. In this article, we review weed identification and management practices associated with each.
Weeds that are left out of control can quickly overrun an
otherwise beautiful and cared for lawn or landscape. The key to managing weeds
is in the correct identification and appropriate control choice.
First, let’s review how to correctly identify our specific
Weeds can be classified into several groups just like plants

Rush weed: Similar to grasses but have a round stem which is

Example: Soft rush
Weed Management Practices should include a number of steps
besides chemical applications. Similar to insect pest management, it is best to
utilize an integrated approach to weed control. Half of weed management is
proper maintenance and planning. We want to use the minimum amount of chemicals
in our environment as possible, and only when needed. Using too much chemical,
or the wrong chemical, will waste your time and money, and create an added risk
to our environmental community.
As we’ve already discussed, if you already have weeds, then
the first step is weed identification. If you are only now beginning to plan
your garden, you would want to look at weed prevention methods into your
landscaping plan. The next step should include mechanical and/or cultural
practices that will limit weed proliferation in your yard or garden. These
might include crop rotation, cultivation, hand pulling or correct mowing
methods. Biological control methods should be investigated as well, for
instance, do you have a nitrogen deficiency that is creating weak turf and
allowing for weed insurrection. Lastly, we would review what chemical methods
would be warranted for our situation.
Chemical methods for weed control include numerous
categories. There are herbicides, which can be either selective or
non-selective. This simply means that either the herbicide will kill anything
it comes into contact with, or only a select weed category, such as sedge.
There are pre-emergence herbicides which will not allow small seedlings to
germinate and break through the surface that the pre-emergent is applied to.
This is an excellent choice for gardeners with established beds that will not
be planting seeds. Pre-emergence can be applied on a routine schedule and will
keep smaller weeds from ever popping out of the ground to be a nuisance, and
have no chance of damaging your current bedding plants or shrubs. Post-emergence
herbicides are contact based and systemic, meaning that the weed must come into
direct contact with the chemical and will move the chemical throughout its
vascular system. But, be forewarned, if over spray with a post emergence non
selective herbicide gets onto your cultivated plants, you will lose not only
your weeds, but your ornamentals as well.
Be sure to choose the weed control method that is most
appropriate for your situation, and will have the least impact on your
environment. Create an ongoing plan for weed control, since the easiest weed to
handle is the one that hasn’t shown up yet.
Name That Weed
Summary: When trying to manage weeds in your yard or garden,
identification can be essential.
In thisarticle, we discuss a few common weeds, how to identify them, and management
techniques for control.
Weeds, weeds, weeds…what exactly are weeds? In general
terms, weeds are just plants. There is no specific plant class called ‘weeds’. Weeds can be defined in the same manner that beauty can, they are in the eye of the beholder. Weeds are just plants out of place. So, if you have plants growing in places that you don’t want them, you call them weeds.
When trying to manage weeds in your yard or garden, identification can be essential. In this article, we discuss a few common weeds, how to identify them, and management
techniques for control. There are three basic classifications of weeds; broadleaves, grasses, and sedges.
Broadleaves have 2 cotyledons, or seedling leaves, when they emerge. You will often note that the veins on the leaves have a netted pattern, and often if left to grow, they have
showy flowers. Some examples of broadleaf weeds are Virginia Button weed, white
clover, and common chickweed.
Grasses are distinguished from broadleaf weeds by only having one seedling leaf, veins that run parallel to the main leaf vein, and more of a fibrous root system instead of the central ‘tap’ root of the broadleaf plants. Crabgrass, goose grass, and Bermuda grass are examples of common grass weeds
Sedges, which can easily be mistaken for grasses, have leaves in groups of three, and differentiate from the grasses by having a ‘triangular’ stem instead of the round stem of grasses. Sedges have edges, can help you remember how to distinguish sedges from grasses. Purple nutsedge and nutsedge are common
names for weed sedges.
You’re no horticulturist, you say. Why in the heavens do you need to know how to
identify weeds then? As the old saying goes, “Know thy enemy.” The more you
know about your weed, and how it thrives, the better equip you are to eradicate
it. Not only that but, if you purchase a herbicide that only kills sedges, but
your weed is a grass, you will have wasted valuable time and money with little
reward. Knowledge is power, so get
Herbicides are categorized into selective and non selective
formulations. Non selective herbicides will kill everything. Selective
formulations will address specific plants while not affecting others. This can come in handy when spraying for
weeds in an ornamental flower bed for instance.
If you have weed grasses growing, spraying them directly with a non
selective herbicide such as Roundup could cause damage or death to surrounding
ornamentals with only minimal over spray. But, if instead you use a grass
specific herbicide, those broadleaf ornamentals will be safe as houses. So
knowing your weed helps, and knowing what type of herbicide you’re spraying
does as well.
Herbicides can also be separated into pre emergence and post
emergence herbicides. Pre emergence herbicides will specifically control weeds ‘before’
you see them. The herbicide will for a ‘barrier’ on the top layer of soil,
disallowing new seeds from germinating. It will not, although, have any effect
on weeds that you can already see. Those weeds would need to be hand pulled or
sprayed with a post emergence herbicide, which means it kills weeds that are
So with a little label reading and weed identification, you
can zero in on the correct herbicide to keep your lawn and garden weed free.

What is preemergent herbicide?
Preemergent herbicides are chemicals that prevent the germinating weeds from establishing in the lawn or flower beds. These herbicides control annual grass weeds by inhibiting cell division in the young root system. The failure of the root system to develop results in the death of the young seedling weed shortly after germination.
We are told over and over again that a thick health lawn will grow no weeds and that is true for the most part, but we all struggle with certain areas that are thin or struggling. So for homeowners who cannot satisfactorily address the control of annual grass weeds in a preventive manner using only cultural controls, the best way to stop annual grass weeds from establishing in their lawns is through the use of preemergent herbicides.
