Yes, I imprinted the words "herbicide" to the Xerces photo above to point out where the herbicide is used (between the rows of milkweed to keep unwanted weeds from crowding out the slow growing milkweed seedlings). The original Xerces photo is here on page 9: http://www.monarchlab.org/mn2012/Admin/upload/15.pdfblazing star wrote:Paul, Post the link from where you got that brochure.

I'm not guessing about whether or not herbicides are used in Milkweed Restoration Projects. Yesturday I witnessed the spraying in action (applicator wearing a backpack sprayer, plus protective white coveralls and rubber gloves) in a speciosa milkweed crop field (same field as shown in the first photo of this thread):blazing star wrote:Ok.
