Yuma County Conservation District offers Field Day to demonstrate cheatgrass control – The Burlington Record

Yuma County Conservation District will present a producer workshop on Friday June 17 to see test plot results and discuss a cheatgrass rangeland herbicide.

The workshop begins at 9 am and will be at the Quintech in Yuma (529 N. Albany St.), followed by field tours. There is no charge for this event.

In the summer of 2020 the active ingredient indaziflam (RejuvraTM) was approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use on rangelands, CRP, and natural areas.

Indaziflam’s mode of action inhibits cellulose biosynthesis in seedlings, making it an effective pre-emergent herbicide for annuals such as cheatgrass, a non-native winter annual grass.

Cheatgrass is the most widespread invasive plant in the western US This herbicide provides multiple years of invasive annual grass (cheatgrass, jointed goatgrass, feral rye) control and noxious broadleaf weeds with a single application.

There will also be a discussion of a new rangeland digital tool called RangeView for cheatgrass detection and post-treatment monitoring. Combine the new digital planning tools of RangeView with the long-lasting effects of Rejuvra herbicide for unrivaled cheatgrass control. This powerful approach can restore rangelands, re-establish native species and increase forage quality for successful rangeland restoration and overall better ROI.
