Thistle Control Alternatives


Thistles compete with desirable forage and grain crops like clover and wheat, and are a major pest in almost every state. This publication focuses on two of the more troublesome thistles (Canada and musk), with some coverage of other thistles such as plumeless, Italian, bull, and yellow star. Since thistles are a widespread problem, most Extension offices around the country have guidelines on thistle control and management. This publication focuses on the cultural, biological, organic, and least-toxic methods available for their control.
