Pasture weeds can markedly reduce forage quantity and availability, and are often a function of grazing practices. Understanding the options available to achieve weed control in grazed land is important, and often includes the integration of different management tools, such as herbicides, managing pasture fertility, and the deliberate use of rotational grazing to directly and indirectly control unpalatable weeds. This seminar will review nearly 20 years of research into the control of Canada thistle on pasture in central Alberta, including integrated weed control.
