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.

When is a Good Time to Scout and Control Glyphosate-Resistant Marestail? March 8, 2017

Marestail, also known as horseweed or Canada fleabane, is a winter or summer annual weed in Nebraska. Historically, marestail was found in waste area, field edges, along roadsides, and railway tracks; however, no-till crop production systems over the last 20 years favor marestail germination and establishment in agronomic crops in Nebraska.
