Weed seed control technology will be on full display at this year's Farm Progress Show Aug. 30-Sept. 1. Learn the latest strategies from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Does anyone out there known of an easy way to get seed out of buds without destroying the bud itself? Weeds! In the fields! How do you prevent the spread from one field to another? How do you get rid of them? Here is some information and ways to prevent the spread from field to field of weed seeds.

Weed Seed Destructor and Other Control Methods to Be Showcased

AMES, Iowa – Controlling weeds in farm fields is an annual challenge – especially with more weeds becoming resistant to herbicides.

Fortunately, producers have a wide range of options to counter weeds, including some creative ways that may not have been employed in the past.

At this year’s Farm Progress Show, Aug. 30-Sept. 1 in Boone, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will showcase one of the more innovative, and practical methods of controlling weeds: a weed seed destructor.

Fitted to a combine, the weed seed destructor does what it’s name implies. It pulverizes and destroys seeds so that they cannot germinate.

The weed seed destructor (by Redekop) will be attached to the back of a John Deere 680 combine and will be available for viewing outside the ISU Extension and Outreach tent. While the machine will not be operating during the show, visitors can see it in operation on a computer screen, and they can ask questions of weed science experts.

“We want to give the public a chance to see and ask about this innovative form of weed control technology,” said Prashant Jha, professor and extension weed specialist at Iowa State. “Farmers in central Iowa and in Harrison County are already using this technology and we expect more will do so in the coming years.”

Other methods of weed control will also be featured, including videos of chaff lining, a method that guides the harvested chaff into narrow bands as it flows out the back of the combine at harvest, which reduces the spread of weed seeds by more than 95% across the fields and contains weed seeds in smaller spaces.

The harvester or combine is modified with a baffle that separates the chaff (containing the majority of weed seeds) from the straw. The chaff is directed into narrow central bands using a chute at the rear of the combine.

Weed seeds in the chaff are subjected to decay, and burial of small-seeded weed species such as waterhemp in the chaff will potentially result in reduced emergence in the subsequent growing season. High application rates of herbicides or shielded sprayers can be used to selectively control emerged weeds in those narrow bands in the field.

The weed control display will also allow visitors the chance to test their knowledge of weed specimens found in the Midwest. Sixteen different species will be available for visitors to identify.

Visitors will also have the chance to learn more about waterhemp, and how it can be suppressed using cereal rye as a cover crop. Photos and sample trays will show the results of using no rye, rye terminated at 4-6 inches tall, and rye terminated close to heading.

“We’re going to be showing the potential for biomass (cover crops) to suppress weeds like waterhemp, and how the results vary based on the height of the cover crop,” said Jha.

Cereal rye has the best potential to suppress weeds because it accumulates more biomass than other cover crop species. A study that was done for the Farm Progress Show shows an incremental decrease in waterhemp based on the density of rye.

Field studies indicate cereal rye biomass of 4,500 to 5,000 pounds per acre at termination can significantly suppress waterhemp emergence in soybeans, and reduce the size and density of waterhemp at the time of exposure to postemergence herbicides.

Additionally, producers can view a map of where herbicide resistance has been documented in Iowa based on the recent survey, and ask questions to Jha and other specialists about their own experience with herbicide-resistant weeds.

Jha will be joined at the show by ISU Extension and Outreach field agronomists Angie Rieck-Hintz, Meaghan Anderson, Gentry Sorenson and Mike Witt and several weed science graduate students.

nope but I know how to get bud out of seed without destroying the buds. jkd you could google “single bud pollination” and its ways to pollinate single buds but if your new to breeding id say just fuck up the whole plant. no pain no gain

If it’s seeded by accident you either don’t sell it, hash it, or discount it. There’s no practical way to de-seed without destroying the buds. I de-seed and put the remnants into the hash/trim bin.

He didn’t say but I was assuming by the question that he accidentally seeded some bud and is trying to save it.

I seed bud all the time on purpose and when I de-seed the buds, that trim left over goes into small jars. It’s then ready to roll or stick into my pipe, bonus in my books, two-for-one

Yeah either that or the hash bin if I have more around than I can smoke/vape. I’ve seen postings about how seeded bud is not as good, lmao

New German teleporter technology makes it easy to deseed and causes zero damage to buds.

Last time I had some I pushed it through a metal pasta strainer. Got back a pile of nice seeds and a pile of bud powder lol. Worked great in the vaporizer, but I didn’t like smoking it (maybe too many hull remnants). I ended up running a bunch of QWISO with most of it and that worked out great too.

easiest way to remove it is to sell it and tell people it has seeds. let them deal with it, or poke seeds out with point of scissors.

So far I haven’t got rid of any of my smoke, so I’m just doing it as I smoke it. But when I first harvested I went through and “shucked” out what was easy to get. Then I tried to push the seeded buds to the back of the queue, so now that it’s time to plant, they are what I have left. Worked out pretty good.

If its heavily seeded it can be a pain.

I bought a real seedy ounce once (someone did the “old switcheroo” on me). was a pain in the backside .. but i smoked it.

Then put in a small hydro set up and used some of those seeds..

Honestly my out door spur d that hermied due to stress is far more potent than my indoor. I’m baffled. I was wondering if you can blow it without effecting the taste so much. Or even just edible butter

I ran this auto for seeds tossed the entire plant afterwords. With hundreds of seeds genetically matching that plant never do I try to be gentle. Besides the plants long past harvest once sacs open and seeds start falling out. To me being a month or more past harvest time makes the bud no good. Unless you prefer 90% amber mixed with disintegrated trichomes

Damn I got tricked lol 2016 read never skim

put it in a contractor bag and hang it from a tree and get a bat and hit it like a piñata. keep rearranging the stalks and shaking them after you hit it a bunch of times.

Preventing Spread of Weed Seeds from Field to Field this Fall

With the weeds observed in some fields throughout the area, preventing weed seed from spreading into clean fields should be an important part of harvest. An ounce of prevention can keep weed issues in problem fields from spreading into clean fields. While typically you want to hand pull or hoe weeds out of fields where only a handful of plants exist, this will not be a viable method for many fields this year. This means the destination for that weed seed is to be run through a combine and potentially spread wherever that combine roams. Combines can easily carry 150 pounds or more of bio materials (including weed seed) in various locations throughout the machine from field to field. So, it is important to take steps to help prevent that spread from field to field. To help prevent that spread here are some things to consider when combining this fall. Nathan Drewitz, University of Minnesota Extension, provides the following considerations.

Preventing weed seed spread prior to combining is always preferable. So, where possible remove problem weeds. For those fields where weeds are too many to hand pull, consider harvesting those fields last to help prevent the flow of weed seed to clean fields. Also, take time to properly clean your combine between fields especially if you are coming out of a field with weed issues present. Specific areas to focus on include the header, feederhouse, rocktrap, grain tank, and unload auger. The following 20 to 30 minute procedure is from a publication by the North Central Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources Academy’s Combine Clean Out series which can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/3twaf3a6.

  1. Run unloading auger empty for at least one minute.
  2. Open the clean grain and tailings elevator doors, rock trap, and unloading auger sump.
  3. Start the combine and separator.
  4. Operate the combine this way for at least two minutes for self-cleaning.
  5. Clean any material left in the rock trap.
  6. Use a leaf blower or air compressor to remove material from exterior of the combine focusing on the header, feederhouse, and axle and straw spreader at the rear of the machine.
  7. Remember to close the doors to the rock trap, clean the grain elevator, and the unloading auger sump.

The recommended tools for cleanout are usually a vacuum or compressed air. If a pressure washer is used some of the residues may become sticky and harder to remove. Also, always make sure to use the proper Personal Protective Equipment which includes gloves, protective eyewear, a dust mask with at least an N95 rating, and hearing protection.
