Grazing, mowing and clover plantings control yellow starthistle

IPM Practitioner 18(2): 1-4

Grazing, mowing and clover plantings control yellow starthistle

Control of yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis) by sheep grazing, mowing and clover (Trifolium subterraneum) plantings was studied at BIRC field station, near Winters, California, in experiments started in 1993. Preliminary results indicated that the clover seeded plots resulted in improved starthistle control compared to the other treatments.
