Post-Direct and Hooded Options for Pigweed Control

In his blog Post-Direct and Hooded Mixtures, University of Tennessee Extension Weed Specialist Larry Steckel notes that glufosinate (Liberty) has displaced glyphosate as the most common herbicide used for post-direct or hooded operations. Yet, other options are available, and Steckel offers his thoughts on mixtures for growers to consider.
