2015 Cost Control

I have written previously about controlling costs.  Looking at machinery costs and reducing rents are likely to be most helpful.  I suspect those decisions are made.

One thing that can still be corrected is weed control.  My advice would be to make sure that weeds are killed no matter the cost of getting it done.  With herbicide resistance and naturally aggressive weeds invading, weed control is of the utmost importance. You will pay for neglecting weed control for many years to come.

Prairie Farmer says don't skimp on tough weeds.  The article is well written, so check it out.  A comprehensive approach with multiple modes of action will be most effective.  If you do your own spraying, learn to look at herbicide group numbers and make sure yo are using 3 groups.
