controls seek to control weed problems by establishing desired plant
species. Cultural techniques manipulate the plant community through
cultivating (cutting through and turning over the soil), re-seeding,
fertilizing and irrigating.
There are many native grasses and forbs that are low maintenance
and provide solid competition for noxious weeds once they become established.
The Grass Seeding on the Eastern Front-Range
of Colorado page in the Small Acreage section of this site provides seed suggestions for a variety of land
use and soil types.
