 Implement for weed control/removal

I have ~2 acres of weeds on desert soil (Phoenix, AZ). I have a Kubota 2710 w/loader. What implement would be best for weed removal? These weeds are ~1 ft high right now (recent, rare rain).

I've tried a box scraper with only marginal success - it requires multiple passes and careful attention not to skip over the top or cut too deep. Scraping with the loader works, but time consuming and can easily cut too deep.

Thanks in advance. You all have been very helpful with prior "newbie" questions!!!

--Harold

Can you use a rotary cutter and mow them off?

You might take a look at an s-tine cultivator for this. If the weeds are already a foot high, it's probably too late, but is something to consider in the future, or after mowing.

I live in the NM desert and except for the heat, it is similar to the AZ side. I use Round-up with great success. If you have wide areas, a tractor mounted sprayer works well, but I choose to be more specific. I use a two or four gallon backpack sprayer and walk the property to spot spray just the troublesome weeds. That way I can kill the tumbleweeds and broadleafs without killing the needle sage and cactus. Round-up kills all plant life, but does not last in the soil, so it will not continue killing after its initial application.

Based on what has been said so far my vote goes for the Monsanto solution, Roundup, the less you disturb semi-arid soil the better. Besides with uneven terrain any kind of cutting is very difficult to get right or do easily. If you have a four-wheeler they make a nifty little spot-sprayer that runs a 12v. electric spray pump off the battery, you just cruise around with the sprayer in your lap and nuke the weeds as you get to them. It works well AND it's fun, how much better does it get than that?

Best of luck.

Thanks all for your suggestions! I had previously discounted Roundup due to cost and potential lasting effects.

Anybody have suggestions for where to get it in bulk/cheap?

Thanks!

Harold, there are no lasting effects from Roundup. It is strictly a contact killer moving systemicly from the leaves thru the rest of the plant to the root. The treated plant is technicly dead within hours altho it will remain green for several days and no further growth will occur, a few days it will dry up ready to burn. Go to a farm supply store where they sell seed, fertilizer, chemicals, etc. I think most places of that type will have it in bulk or in jugs lots cheaper than a garden center type outlet. There are now also generic brands of roundup that cost less and seem to work just as well.

Harold,

I buy Round-up in a 2 1/2 gallon jug at a farmer's co op. The last I bought, last year, was $125. That's a whole lot cheaper than you can get it at Wal-Mart or other discount stores.

Billy
