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.
Sericea Lespedeza, Lespedeza cuneata
Apply 1.5 pt/A PastureGard HL in the late spring to early -summer before bloom. The plants should be 12 to 15 inches tall with fully developed leaves. Increase the rate to 2 pints per acre for dense stands or later stages of growth. Use a minimum spray volume of 10 gallons per acre. Higher application volumes are preferred. For spot application, mix 6 pints PastureGard HL per 100 gallons of water or 1 fluid ounce PastureGard HL per gallon of water. Apply the spray uniformly and thoroughly wet the Sericea lespedeza foliage. Metsulfuron 60 DF at 1.0 oz/A plus 0.25% nonionic surfactant is an excellent treatment for sericea control.
