Re: Palmer

That CRP mix took it into Iowa and Minnesota, it got caught behind the 8-ball some states didn`t label it as a noxious week, which had seed label confusion.   I look at these super weeds, they wouldn`t have happened if we still sprayed Banvel/Accent type tankmixes and cultivated twice, but you can`t farm the whole county if you have to cultivate.  But now we see the trade off and the bill coming due.

Re: Palmer

CRP is maybe the worst place for this stuff to erupt.  Who is watching the CRP plot, especially if the landlord is distant?  Scary

Re: Palmer

Interesting read - But will add one thing - I had heard that it can be spread by chicken manure from the Southern States - They dry it - or pelletize it and ship North for organic farming -  Like I said - this was just what I heard , makes since though .

Why does all this ornery stuff come out of the south?  They better not drag their Kudzu up here and they can keep their Zika mosquitos  🙂 

 

Here`s a Jerry Clower story about "porcupine eggs"  🙂

 

Beware of porcupine egg salesmen

Jerry Clower once told the story about Newgene Ledbetter — the meanest of the fabled Ledbetter clan — and his trip to the 4-H Round-up in Chicago.

He said Newgene came home with a bunch of $1 bills. His daddy grabbed a brush to spank his son and said, “Newgene, you’ve done robbed a bank.”

“I ain’t done no such, Papa,” Newgene said. “I just took advantage of some ignorant people.”

 

“Well, how did you get all that money?” his father asked.

“Well, I took a bag of cockleburs with me up to Chicago, and I sold them at $1 apiece as a porcupine egg.”
