Weed management is top-of-mind for farmers. Windy conditions have kept some post-emergence herbicide applications on hold. “I hope farmers continue to be patient with the wind. Spray drift isn’t something we can handle right now,” said Sarah Lovas, owner and agronomist, Lovas Ag Consulting. “There are weeds that need to be controlled. The pre-emergence herbicides are working really well, but it’s time to get into fields and take care of weeds.” Waterhemp and ragweed are popping up and Lovas is a little surprised with the amount of kochia being seen. “Normally, I think of that being a weed that’s a little further west.”
