Pre- and Post-Harvest Weed Management in Cotton

Pre- and post harvest weed control are both critical components of an overall weed seed management strategy. Fields should be scouted before and after harvest and weeds should be controlled until temperatures are low enough to limit germination. Weeds present at harvest can potentially reduce fiber quality and interfere with harvest efficiency. Achieving and maintaining post-harvest weed control can decrease weed pressure and help reduce costs associated with field preparations in the spring.
