Weed Wiper Technology and Usage
While weed wipers have been all but forgotten among row crop farmers, many pasture and range producers in the United States have never heard about them. There is great potential for using wick applicators for weed control in meadows and pastures in the Great Plains of the United States. Cattle and other grazing animals consume forage and typically avoid weeds. This results in weeds taller than the desirable forage, allowing the weeds to be easily treated with a wick applicator.
