Weeding Out in Winter
Now that you’re done harvesting, winter maintenance can begin. While many may think that farmers are ‘on holiday’ during winter, we know that the work never stops. Weed management is an important maintenance task that should be kept up throughout the year even if you don’t plan on planting winter crops. Growing weeds can deplete the soil from necessary nutrients and water that will be needed during the spring/summer planting season. If weeds are not dealt with, they can also become carriers for pest and pathogens that can further damage future crops.
If there’s one, there can be hundreds more; if the weeds are not controlled during winter, they will release their seeds and come summer you might have a bigger problem than you initially thought. It’s vital that you stop the weeds’ life cycle to contain the problem and save yourself from unnecessary labour and costs. During this season there’s also less chance of rain which can impact the effectiveness of a herbicide.
If you don’t have a weed management strategy in place, please talk to your Remitto consultant for assistance. Before starting treatment, you will have to identify the kind of weeds you have in the field. Improper herbicide use can lead to resistant weeds and cause problems with weed management in the future and damage plants that are necessary.
Devoting the necessary time in winter to eradicate weeds will also free up your time in spring and summer so that you can devote your attention and energy to preparing the fields for your summer crops and other maintenance tasks. Remember it’s best to be proactive and nip the problems in the bud.

RONDO™ 757 SG is a water-soluble granular non-selective foliar, systemic herbicide that’s intended for the management of a wide range of annual and perennial grasses, broadleaf weeds and certain woody perennials on agricultural land.
This herbicide should be applied to actively growing weeds that are not dormant or under temperature or moisture stress. Rain or irrigation a few days prior to a RONDO™ 757 SG application ensures that weeds are actively growing, resulting in optimum efficacy.
