When stands of established alfalfa get thinner weeds become a problem. The presence of poisonous weeds are of greatest concern in established alfalfa.

If weeds become a problem, they can compete or interfere for light, nutrients, water and space, directly influencing yield, quality and standability.

The thinner alfalfa population allows weeds to encroach the field. Weeds can also be a problem if they weren't properly managed prior to seeding alfalfa.

A new study from the University of Illinois explains why herbicide rotation doesn't work.

Palmer amaranth and waterhemp, have become more widespread and they've adapted to fend off a few different herbicides that have been used to kill them.

Good pasture management and integrating several control strategies will be more successful than relying on one single method.

The assay can detect genetic variations unique to Palmer even when flooded with samples from closely related species, including waterhemp.

The American Seed Trade Association hosted a meeting to discuss a collaborative approach to addressing Palmer amaranth and other weed seed issues.

Poison hemlock is not the only plant that you should be on the lookout for. Jimsonweed, pokeweed and black locust are potentially poisonous to livestock.

Proper fertilization, use of disease-resistant varieties, insect control, cutting management, and use of herbicides are necessary to an alfalfa stand.
