NDSU Debuts Weed Destructor

Carrington Research Extension Center Director Mike Ostlie showcased the state’s first weed destructor at the annual field day. Ostlie described the weed destructor as a hammer mill on the back of a combine that grinds the weeds seeds in the chaff. Managing herbicide-resistant weeds begins at harvest. “They found greater than 95 percent control of herbicide-resistant weeds.”
