How to Manage Weed Escapes in Late Fall

Every year, some weeds can escape regardless of the weed control strategy used. These are usually spotted during harvest and too late to control. So, what can be done to alleviate these weeds for next year? During harvest, it is best to catalogue the weeds from the combine cab. There are two ways of doing this.

  • By using the Climate FieldView™ platform, drop pins where the weeds are and then identify them on the pin. If time allows, take pictures of the escaped weeds; pictures can help your ag retailer to identify them. This is the best way to catalogue the escaped weeds.
  • Alternatively, if you do not have FieldView, take a notebook, draw out the field boundaries and mark the approximate area where the weeds are located. Once all the weeds are catalogued, you can determine what crop will be planted in that field and start planning your weed control system for the next spring.

Performance may vary, from location to location and from year to year, as local growing, soil and weather conditions may vary. Growers should evaluate data from multiple locations and years whenever possible and should consider the impacts of these conditions on the grower’s fields.
