With harvest activities starting to wind up in some areas, farmers are looking at their
fall weed control.

Weeds need to be actively growing in order to get the best result.

Crops Extension Specialist Shannon Chant says fall weed control or suppression is helpful in preventing
issues in the Spring.

"Definitely, things are setting seed before emergence in the Spring. If they set seed before even seeding, then
perhaps depending on how Spring is you're kind of eliminating some of that competition."

Chant says now up until freeze up is a good time to focus on weed control.
