Ragweed

Postby jnm303 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:03 pm

I have pasture that has been grazed down too low and no has good of ragweed. I'm planning on no-tilling seed in to the pasture. Can the ragweed be choked out in time or do I need to spray it?

Will have to spray it....ragweed is the choker but fairly easy to control if you spray it early in the spring.

Must be the giant ragweed....I’d say the only type I’ve seen mine eat on purpose.

Is this it? Not sure if you can tell, but there is a cow in there grubbing away! They eat it up.

The ragwed here only grows about 18” tall or so. Is the ragweed in that pic as tall as it looks?

Yes sir! It was probably 6 1/2 feet tall. There is a 1400 pound cow hidden in that stuff! Lol.

My neighbor said it has very good protein levels in vegetative state. I want to say he said 18-20%, somewhere in there. Cattle here wear it out too. Until it starts flowering.
