Saskatchewan Forage Council Project UpdateRotating Steel Drum Wiper Applicator

The Saskatchewan Forage Council, in partnership with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture and Ducks Unlimited, is undertaking a project to demonstrate the effects of weed wiper applicators on absinth and common tansy on perennial pastures. In 2015, glyphosate herbicide was applied at six sites (three absinth and three tansy sites) using two weed wiper applicators: a rotating steel drum-type applicator and a wick applicator. Sites were then observed one month and three months after herbicide application and the effects on the weed and the surrounding desirable vegetation were noted. This project will continue with a follow-up assessment in 2016 and the final report will be posted on the SFC website. 

A short web video has been produced to share the project results to date. This video has been posted on the Saskatchewan Forage Council's YouTube Channel. To view the video, click here

The project was supported by the Agricultural Demonstration of Practices and Technologies (ADOPT) initiative under the Canada-Saskatchewan Growing Forward 2 bi-lateral agreement.
