May 2014 - Weed Control featuring HOARY CRESS (Whitetop)

Whitetop is a perennial plant is the first noxious weed that we attack in the spring. Right now it is starting to bolt and in about three weeks you will be able to see the formation of the white buds. Since it occurs early and develops very thick canopies, it does a great job of choking out desirable plants and the diverse root system allows the plant to absorb most of the water and nutrients.
