When is pulling recommended?

  • You have only a few plants or a very small new infestation
  • Before the plant has matured and produced seed
  • The weed at hand is an annual or biennial
  • The weed at hand does not have a deep, complex root system and only reproduces by seed
  • You cannot use chemicals, heavier equipment, or livestock

    Limits to Success:

    • Pulling is not effective for plants that can reproduce through rhizomes or vegetatively.
    • It does not affect or reduce the seed bank that would have been created if the infestation has been established in the past
    • Aggressive and repeated pulling is necessary for complete results
