sand burr infestation

Asked October 10, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

My ten acre place near Iola has a bad sand burr infestation. I am wondering what steps I should take to try to rid myself of them. We had dirtwork done to build our home and now the ground is covered in them.

Thank you for using eXtension. I am going to refer you to the following website, becasue it is from Texas. I want to make sure that you have the correct application procedure and the approved herbicides. You will be making a pre-emergent application so soil temperature will be critical. It is quite different up here in North Dakota. Please see:
