Survey Weeds—Late Fall
Survey your orchard after the first rains of the fall, after winter annuals germinate. Monitoring weeds in fall helps identify any summer species that escaped the previous year’s weed control program; adjustments can be made to control these species in the next year. Fall monitoring will also identify any winter species that are emerging.
How to survey
Also keep records of weed management actions including timing, rates, and dates of herbicide applications and cultivations. Survey information collected over a period of years tells you how weed populations may be changing and how effective yourUmanagement operations have been over the long term.
