Examining Absinthe (wormwood) control.  

  • Our group discussed the merits of the applications.

On July 14th 2015 a group of interested farmers met at Gary and Pam Welter's property to look at an ADOPT (Agriculture Demonstration of Practices & Technologies) site which was examining Absinthe (wormwood) control. Our group discussed the merits of the applications. Was it better to just allow the alfalfa to compete with the wormwood with no herbicide? The complicating factor was there were above average growing conditions on this property after the herbicide applications which would have given the alfalfa an added boost in growth.
