Johnson grass came on strong with the buckwheat, Native told me to spray it with clethodim before we left for vacation. Looks like the clethodim is doing its job. Hopefully the thatch won’t be too thick next month after the buckwheat matures. I’m hoping the johnson grass continues to dry down and won’t be a problem, since it had gotten so tall. You can see it in the background in this pic. It usually takes our deer a year or so to get used to a new planting, but the chicory didn’t get any break at all!
