New technology at this year’s Nebraska Ag Expo could help farmers better manage herbicide resistant weeds.
Dave Button with Kansas-based Row Shaver says his products cuts weeds that grow between or above any type of crop similar to a shredder or mower. “It works very well in tandem with a preemerge program. The GMO products that we have today are getting weaker and weaker with the herbicide resistance that we’re seeing with the weeds.”
He tells Brownfield the attachment can be fitted on sprayer, swather, tractor and detasseler and it may take a few passes during the growing season.
