    Herbicide Thoughts for alfalfa

    For the first time next year I will be planting my alfalfa in the spring. Always planted in Aug here in Central Indiana, but cannot have the new land in time, so spring it is. So, I figure on some weed pressure regardless of what I do and have been reading up on herbicides. Are Pursuit or Raptor what most folks are using? Other thoughts?

    I am in Central Indiana. Going to ask my seed salesman, but thought I would see what folks are using with good luck and little alfalfa damage. Planting a good hybrid seed, but if I get weed pressure, which seems to be of a problem to spring planters around here, wanting to educate myself on options. Thanks.

    I'd go with a pre like Eptam and get control of the weeds early.Then if needed come back with Pursuit if needed.

    Eptam is basically Treflan with a safener in it.Some have used Treflan here but its off label.

    Pre's are cheap compared to post sprays.

    Pursuit doesn't do sqwaut to waterhemp either.
