How much is enough: Effect of Spray Volume on Controlling Invasive Knotweeds

How much is enough: Effect of Spray Volume on Controlling Invasive Knotweeds

Dr. Mark Renz and Tony Summers with the University of Wisconsin conducted a field study in 2014 in McFarland, Wisconsin to determine if the amount of spray volume would impact knotweed control with Milestone at the spot treatment rate of 14 fluid ounces per acre (fl oz/A).

Identification and Management of Invasive Knotweeds

Identification and Management of Invasive Knotweeds

There are four highly invasive knotweed species typically included in the complex including Japanese knotweed (Fallopia cuspidatum); giant knotweed (Fallopia sachalinense); Bohemian knotweed (Fallopia x bohemicum), a hybrid between giant and Japanese knotweed; and Himalayan knotweed (Persicaria wallichii). Knotweed control efforts typically require a combination of treatments over multiple years.

Optimizing Knotweed Control and Estimating Costs to Eradicate Populations

Optimizing Knotweed Control and Estimating Costs to Eradicate Populations


Studies conducted by the University of Wisconsin measured Bohemian knotweed (Fallopia x bohemicum) control under various treatment scenarios. These included 1) herbicide selection, rate and application timing, 2) spray volume, 3) mowing prior to herbicide application, and 4) feasibility and cost of knotweed eradication.
