As temperatures fluctuate in April, farmers are controlling weeds with a new herbicide.
Known as "burn-down herbicides," these herbicides are a technological advancement on the typical Roundup and Touchdown herbicides that fail in cooler weather, and with temperatures scheduled to be below 40 degrees for roughly half of the month, burn-down herbicides serve as a solution.
Agronomy Specialist at the University of Missouri Holt County Extension, Wayne Flanary says burn down herbicides work like normal herbicides.
