“This year is going to be a challenge for chemical products supply. Shortages are occurring in many brands. Please be open to changes in your chemical program as we experience unforeseen supply disruptions. Check with your Asmus Farm Supply agronomist often to find out which products are sold out. Thank you.” - Harlan Asmus, AFS President and Crop Protection Manager
Acuron GT by Syngenta has received a federal and all state approval. AFS will have supply to try in 2021. Call your local agronomist for pricing and availability.

Herbicide Information for Grazing & Hay Production
Weeds can reduce the quantity and the stand life of desirable forage plants in pastures and hayfields. These unwanted plants are often more aggressive than existing or desired forage species and compete for light, water, and nutrients. Weeds can also diminish the quality and palatability of the forage available for livestock grazing, and certain weed species are potentially poisonous to grazing animals. The aesthetic value of a pasture is also impacted by weeds.
Therefore, it may be desirable to initiate weed management strategies that reduce the impact of weeds on forage production. Utilize thefact sheetto the right for more information on herbicides for your grazing and hay pastures.
