Herbaceous Weed Treatment

Herbaceous weed treatment is the removal or control of herbaceous weeds including invasive, noxious, prohibited, or undesirable plants. This video explores how the Gamm family implement this conservation practice on their operation in Fayette, Iowa.
Major benefits of this practice include:
• Enhancing wildlife habitat
• Helping control undesirable plants
• Improving biodiversity
• Reducing erosion
• Increasing desirable plant community
The Conservation at Work video series was created to increase producer awareness of common conservation practices and was filmed at various locations throughout the country. Because conservation plans are specific to the unique resource needs on each farm and soil type, weather conditions, etc., these videos were designed to serve as a general guide to the benefits of soil and water conservation and landowners should contact their local USDA office for individual consultation.
