Selective Herbicide?

rainydays(4 WI)March 8, 2005

Do any of you use a Pre or Post emergence herbicide? We generally have only grown pumpkins. With a no-spray program. Doing a final shallow tilling right around July 4th. Now we are getting into more Vegetables. I am afraid I will not be able to keep up with the 2 acres and still have time for my other obcession Giant Pumpkins. Along with working 40 hours a week. Thanks Shannon

There are many very good herbicides out there for each crop, I use a combination of herbicides, cultivation and plastic mulches. I use herbicides the most on sweetcorn and pumpkins, but for vegetables like tomato peppers eggplant squash and melons plastic mulch is the best option...Bob.
