Pasture Weed Control Database

The Pasture Weed Control Database contains the same information and pictures included in the Miscellaneous Publication MP-522. The weeds are arranged alphabetically by scientific name because common names vary. For example, in Arkansas, Eupatorium capillifolium, is variously called, Dogfennel, Cypress Weed, and Texas Cedar.
Lanceleaf Ragweed, Ambrosia bidentata
Ambrosia bidentata
The key to effective ragweed control is spraying when the weeds are small (2 to 4 inches tall). Small ragweeds are readily controlled with 2,4-D amine at 1 qt/A. Grazon P+D, GrazonNext HL and Dicamba + 2,4-D also control ragweeds at 1 qt/A. Cimarron Plus and metsulfuron are not effective on ragweed.
