This is Ag Issues with Neil Roberts.

Neil Roberts:

Welcome to another edition of Ag Issues. Our guest this week is in DSU cropping systems specialist Leo Bartolon from the North Central Research Extension Center. And Leo. Let's talk weeds today. We're getting closer to spring's work and now might be a good time to scout, do you think?

Leo Bartolon:

Hi, Neil. Thanks for having me. Yes. We need to start scouting for weeds right now early in the spring because weeds are germinating already. So walk into the field in a zigzag pattern and looking for any weeds you find. And when you find a weed just market in the area, or in a map or even in a piece of paper, just to make sure where the weeds are located into the field.

Leo Bartolon:

For further explanation, take a picture of the weeds and collect some for further identification.

Neil Roberts:

All right. Thanks, Leo. And hey, we'll talk more on weed identification when we come back.

Neil Roberts:

Talking weed identification today with Leo Bartolon and Leo. What should we be looking for when scouting?

Leo Bartolon:

The first thing for weed identification is just make sure we have you can recognize the two types that we have broadleaf in grasses. So take the grasses or the broadleaf with you even for a picture or even the plants and bring to the office and you can search. There are several online informations about it. To get the weed identified.

Leo Bartolon:

You can also reach out and yes, you extension office or research extension centers. And we have our industry weed control guide. So it's a great source to seek information for weed identification and make the proper control.
