Weed management on native rangeland is a common practice to increase grass production, control poisonous plants, control seedling brush species, and provide some level of brush suppression on mature brush species. Weed control with herbicides has been a common practice on rangelands since the introduction of 2,4-D in the 1940s. Modern selective herbicides allow land managers to target broadleaf plant species while allowing grasses to flourish due to reduced competition for water, nutrients, and sunlight. This publication describes the benefits, application practices, timing, weed control recommendations, and negatives of weed management in Texas rangeland. (6 pages)
