Getting Tough on Fleabane in the Fall is No Longer Optional

Peter Johnson joins RealAgriculture as resident agronomist.

Glyphosate resistant fleabane is coming to a field near you, of that you can be sure. Truth is, you may already have it in your fields, and if you’re typically waiting until spring to control it, the problem is only going to get worse. But take heart!

He also discusses the one option you have if you didn’t get the field sprayed ahead of wheat but want to get in there this fall (which is a good idea).
