Methods for Weed Control


Featured NPE: Brian McClam, from Kingstree, South Carolina


Controlling weeds is a season long battle. Growers need to follow the motto, “Start ​clean. Stay clean." Deltapine NPE grower Brian McClam of Kingstree, SC, says that he employs a double burndown method to start the year and will hand-weed throughout the season to protect his crop.

Key Takeaways:

  • Keeping weeds from seeding is critical all year long.
  • Starting with a clean field is a must each year.
  • Hand-weeding is often a necessary tactic for good weed control.
