wormwood sage, fall spryaing, spray season
Wormwood sage (absinth wormwood) can be controlled in the fall. Recent SDSU W.E.E.D. Project data shows fall spraying on wormwood sage to be very effective. Fall is the only time fencelines or field corners are accessible. There is less risk of drift to non-target, sensitive crops. Fall extends the spray season and spreads the work load. Fall spraying reduces haying/grazing limitations.
