Cultural Control

Cultural weed control methods use practices common to land and water management in helping your lawn, pasture or crops compete against weeds. Planting desirable vegetation, fertilization, irrigation, using goats or livestock as well as having good grazing practices are some cultural control methods.

Competition in Weed Control


Competition is fundamental to a good weed control program. Crops or perennial grasses will compete for sunlight, water and soil nutrients against the weeds. If possible, select crops or grasses that will work well with your soil type and climate conditions and that have beneficial growth habits such as rapid establishment.

Well-Established Stands


Healthy, well-established stands have a good chance to resist weed invasions; therefore, managing these stands will make them as competitive as possible with weeds. Sites such as roadways and fence lines should be the first to receive attention because desirable plants are sparse and the soil is disturbed. Weeds often become established in these areas first.
