Weed Control Can Help Pastures Rejunvenate This Spring After the Drought of 2011

Wed, 15 Feb 2012 05:07:34 CST

Weed Control Can Help Pastures Rejunvenate This Spring After the Drought of 2011 Many producers struggled in 2011, facing volatile weather conditions that included severe drought throughout the South and flooding in the northern Plains. With an emphasis on rebuilding profitability in 2012, we talked with DuPont range and pasture manager Roxy Gutschenritter at the recent Cattle Industry Convention and got her recommendations that can help producers reestablish healthy, productive pastures and benefit their bottom lines.


Gutschenritter told us in Nashvlle that a lot of our pastures in the southern plains were badly beaten down during the drought of 2012- and that with moisture, we can hope to see some gradual recovery this spring. She believes a key is to stay ahead of weeds which have a lot of space to jump ahead of the pasture and get growing this spring because of the drought beatdown. That makes weed control perhaps more important this year than any in recent memory. If you catch those weeds relatively small, control can be more complete and much easier than if you wait until later in the season.


In addition to drought and flood recovery recommendations, Roxy also visited with us on the new range and pasture products and resources DuPont will introduce in 2012 and 2013.
