Pasture Weed Control Database

The Pasture Weed Control Database contains the same information and pictures included in the Miscellaneous Publication MP-522. The weeds are arranged alphabetically by scientific name because common names vary. For example, in Arkansas, Eupatorium capillifolium, is variously called, Dogfennel, Cypress Weed, and Texas Cedar.

Buckhorn Plantain, Plantago lanceolata
Plantago lanceolata
Two proven treatments for buckhorn plantain are Grazon P+D at 1.5 qt/A or Cimarron Max at 1 qt/A + 0.25 oz/A. These products provided 90 to 100% control of buckhorn plantain. Add 0.25% nonionic surfactant to the spray mix. Apply in fall when there is a adequate moisture and the weeds are actively growing. Metsulfuron 60 DF or Cimarron Plus at 0.5 oz/A are also effective herbicides for this weed.
