KDA thistle spraying program available in Adair Co., KY

By Nick Roy
Adair County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture is sponsoring a Thistle Spraying Program in Adair County to assist in control of thistles on Adair County farms. Thistles are considered a noxious weed in Kentucky.

Here's the deal:

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture will supply a sprayer and 10 quarts of 2,4-D herbicide. The landowner must provide a tractor and the water. Landowners may spray up to 20 acres but must provide the additional herbicide. Spraying is scheduled for April 11 and 12, 2011. Due to the timing, 2 quarts of 2,4-D per acre should be applied for maximum control.

First come, first served basis

This program is on a first-come, first serve basis. A limited number of farms will be able to be sprayed this year. For more information and to sign up, contact the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service at 409 Fairground ST, Columbia, KY, or call (270) 384-2317.
