What's up Buttercup ?
I don't know the origin of that phrase but if you have noticed there is a lot
of Buttercup weed in pastures all across Northwest Arkansas.
It's not unusual to see some Buttercup weed in the spring, but
this year's crop is outstanding!
It is pretty but unfortunately, it is a weed and will require a plan
to get rid of it. Pasture management is an ongoing
job of every farmer and changes each year with our always
changing weather conditions.
I'm thankful for the science and research that provide
the ways to manage pastures safely and effectively
and the help farmers receive from our Benton County Extension
agents in making management decisions that impact our farms.
