Weed control

  • Control weeds to maximise yield and quality of alfalfa harvested.
  • Chemical weed control. Herbicide selection depends on the weed species present. Be constantly alert to changing weed problems and pressure in the field. The decision to use herbicides for weed control in established alfalfa depends on the amount and type of weeds present and the alfalfa stand density. Mowing prevents weed seed production and causes perennial weeds to grow from roots. Repeated mowing can suppress some persistent weeds by gradually reducing their root reserves.
