Pictures of Common Weeds in this Region

The following are just a few of the most common weeds controlled with broadleaf herbicide this early spring, permitting the ground is not frozen. A good rule of thumb for herbicide application would be broadleafs in the cooler months, grassy in the warm months, however, most broadleafs respond to chemical application no matter the time of year, they are easier to kill, have more leaf blade surface for the chemical to adhere to and less of a fibrous root system.

Dandelion



Thistle



Plantain

Sedge grasses are the most difficult to control because of their narrow blade surface, lateral root system and persistent nature
