The calendar doesn’t say fall is here yet. However, the weather conditions are telling plants to start getting ready for winter. Fall is an excellent time to get a head start on controlling perennial and biennial noxious weeds. In the fall the shorter daylight hours and the cooler nights trigger plants to take nutrients into their roots to survive the winter. As the plant does this, they also take in the chemicals applied to their leaves. Fall is a general term. Most of the perennial and biennial plants can handle a light frost (temperatures 34 to 40 degrees F). If we have a hard freeze (temperatures below 30 degrees F for two or more consecutive hours) all plants will shut down and stop translocating nutrients. Go to www.weldweeds.org for herbicide options to control your target plants.

Blue Grama is a sod-forming warm season native grass. It can be used for forage, restoration and lawns. Blue Grama typically needs around 12 inches of moisture to grow. This relatively short grass is very drought tolerant and has good winter hardiness. It is not shade tolerant. For more information on plants go to www.weldweeds.org.
