Mild winter could complicate weed management

An agronomist is concerned the mild winter could complicate weed management.

Josh Johnston with AgriGold says weeds are beginning to sprout.

“And as we get a little deeper into the spring, those weeds are probably going to be a little big bigger than they would in a typical spring. So monitor weed size, make sure you’re adjusting (herbicide) rates.”

He tells Brownfield a lot of tillage was done in the fall, and some growers might look out across a field and think it’s clean.
