Resistant weeds found ahead of upcoming harvest season

Your combine may be the reason why more herbicide-resistant weeds are being found in Door and Kewaunee counties. Water hemp has been the most noticeable culprit in the area which if not kept under control could have a drastic impact on crops like soybeans. The easiest way to stop the spread of these types of weeds starts with making sure you are traveling with a clean combine so you do not carry the seeds from one field to another during the upcoming harvest season.  Kewaunee County Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstom says a clean combine could stop the spread before it starts.

Bjurstrom will be joined by Extension Cropping Systems Weed Specialist Dr. Rodrigo Werle and UW-Madison Outreach Specialist Nick Arneson for the hands-on clinic at Rio Creek Feed Mill’s Luxemburg location on August 18th from 1-4 p.m. Water hemp management was also a topic of discussion at a recent field plot tours held last week at the Peninsular Ag Research Station in Sturgeon Bay.
