Weed Out Your Walnut Orchard

This agronomic image shows a walnut field with a reduced amount of weeds from using Broadworks herbicide.

In the walnut weed management trial at the Hickman, CA, Grow More Experience site, we are testing the efficacy of Broadworks™ herbicide. This pre-emergence herbicide trial showcases some of the most visual differences in weed control, comparing Broadworks to untreated and competitor products. At the trees in the foreground in the photo above, you can see the residual weed control of Broadworks on the left compared to a competitor’s product on the right, more than 200 days after application.

The key to getting ahead of these weeds is by making early-season applications before weed germination and continuing to spray as weed pressure persists. Broadworks fits within this formula through pre- and post-emergence applications to control weeds.

Stay tuned for more information about the weed protection progression in this trial.
