2019 Weed recap across the Midwest

A look at the weeds most common in 7 states across the Midwest.

There is no doubt, the wet spring across the Midwest in 2019 helped to create weed problems in many states. Some farmers were unable to get a pre-emergence herbicide applied. Others deal with dry conditions in the middle of the summer. And others fought hard to get a post-emergence herbicide applied only to find out the effectiveness was limited. 

Now, there is down time, it is time to make a weed plan for 2020. This will be especially important if you had acreage that was not planted due to the weather.

Check out what the agronomists from Winfield United found in fields across 7 states throughout the season and what they suggest for producers in 2020 in the battle against weeds.
