Control of Glyphosate-Resistant Marestail with Post-Emergence Herbicides in Corn and Soybean May 29, 2019

Several post-emergence herbicides are available for control of marestail where spring weather may have interfered with application or efficacy of early spring burndown and/or pre-emergence herbicide applications.

Act Soon to Manage Invasive Marestail in Pastures March 27, 2019

A description of marestail's history as an invasive weed in pastures and its management. Herbicide applications for marestail in pastures and rangeland may be most effective if applied in very early spring from April through early May.

Management of Glyphosate-Resistant Marestail in Fall October 25, 2018

For successful marestail management in the fall, apply herbicides after harvest while weather conditions remain favorable (air temperature above 50°F). Effective control now may negate the need for an early spring burndown application.

Residual Herbicides Best Suited to Spring Marestail Management May 2, 2018

Marestail, also called horseweed, is sensitive to most herbicides labeled for its control early in its growth stage, i.e. the rosette stage. Delaying treatment can allow it to compete with corn and soybean, potentially causing significant yield reduction.

Low Temperature and Frost May Affect Efficacy of Burndown Herbicides November 9, 2017

In many areas fall herbicide applications were delayed due to the late harvest. Applications can still be effective, depending on weeds present, temperature, rate of herbicide and additives used. The article offers recommendations for these late-fall applications and their importance, particularly for control of herbicide-resistant marestail.
