Where: Bob Thompson Ranch – Big Valley
Who: Pest Control Professionals & Board of Directors
Dear Director/Pest Control Professional:
This year’s research has focused on low cost 2,4-D LV ester for control of Scotch thistle. Timing was 1) just before bolting, 2) as bolting was beginning and 3) at early flowering. At each treatment time - first to second to third stage - the rate of 2,4-D LV ester in a backpack sprayer was increased 2.5 fold. You will see increased difficulty and cost associated with control of the thistles as they transition from rosette to bolting to flowering thistle.
