Weed Seeds This Fall Means More Weeds Next Spring

Now is the time to think about controlling summer annual weeds prior to seed set in cropping situations where possible. Preventing seed production is important for driving down the weed seed bank and reducing the need for weed control inputs (i.e. herbicides). It is rather easy to prevent weed seed production following a cereal grain such as wheat, barley, or oats as well as some vegetable crops such as sweet corn or snap beans. Proper timing of the control practice is essential in preventing seed production. In general, below is a summary of estimated seed drop for various weed species:
- Giant foxtail: late August and peak seed rain usually occurs from late September through the month of October
- Yellow foxtail: early August and continues into late October
- Pigweed species: begin to produce mature seed by mid-August
- Lambsquarters and ragweed: generally, do not mature until the month of September
- Palmer amaranth or waterhemp: make sure to monitor them routinely over the next couple months and control any regrowth or new seedlings before they set seed. Palmer amaranth plants notoriously retain their seeds late into the summer and fall and thus seeds don’t necessarily fall to the ground upon maturity but are usually spread via the combine.
To prevent seed production, fields can be sprayed with an effective herbicide or mowed once or twice. Glyphosate is particularly effective at stopping grass growth and reproduction. The plant growth regulators (2,4-D and dicamba) would probably be a better choice for broadleaf weeds. With giant foxtail, even treating the field by mid-September can greatly reduce seed production. If seed heads are present, check suspect fields to determine how advanced flowering and seed rain are and time control practices accordingly. In alfalfa or pastures, if weeds are taller than the forage, consider running a brush-hog at a high setting to clip off the immature weed seed heads above the forage canopy. Taking the time to prevent seed production this year can make a big difference next year. About 80% of weeds next season come from weed seed this fall. For more information on weed emergence, weed seed set, and seedbank dynamics, refer to “A Practical Guide for Integrated Weed Management in Mid-Atlantic Grain Crops.”
In addition, many perennial broadleaves are evident in these same small grain stubble fields. The challenge with perennial weeds at this time of year is the fact they are still in the vegetative and reproductive phases. Therefore, most of the plant sugars are not being significantly transported to the roots and a herbicide application now will mostly only impact the top-growth. One consideration would be to mow those fields soon to prevent seed production and allow regrowth to occur. Then apply an effective systemic herbicide (ie, glyphosate, 2,4-D, dicamba) in late September or early October so the herbicide will be transported to the roots for more effective control.

What is Cannabis?
Known to users as “marijuana”, “weed”, and by many other names, cannabis is a plant that naturally produces THC and other mind-altering chemicals. And like in any other plant species, it’s the seeds that contain blueprints for everything, culminating in the buds that you’ll smoke. You won’t need any special “green thumb” magic to get there. Just take care of your plant’s basic needs, such as light, watering, and nutrients, and let genetics do the rest.
Which Cannabis Seeds?
With Fast Buds seeds, you can be sure of your cannabis potency, as well as exceptional aromas and tastes. But not all weed strains are created equal, and it’s worth learning a thing or two about cannabis to make an informed choice.
What Are Feminized Seeds and Why Choose Them?
All cannabis strains in the Fast Buds catalog are feminized. In contrast to “regular” cannabis, feminized seeds only grow into female plants—the ones that produce buds for smoking. So with feminized cannabis seeds, you don’t have to cull males when you spot them in your garden. With every seed you sow, you’ll get 100% action and 0% waste.
What Are Autoflowering Seeds and Why Choose Them?
Cannabis in general is a short-day plant, meaning that it will only start flowering when days get short enough (which happens in late summer). But autoflowering cannabis doesn’t have this limitation. No matter how long or short the days are, it’ll move through every stage of its life cycle automatically.
All Fast Buds strains are autoflowering, and these are the advantages of using them:
- enjoy 30% faster grow cycles,
- have multiple harvests in spring, summer, and fall outdoors,
- grow vegging and flowering plants side by side indoors,
- get the same yields and quality as with traditional cannabis.
3 Best Steps to Find Cannabis Seeds Tailored To Your Needs
The first cannabis you grow yourself will be so good you’ll wonder how it can be any better. Until you grow your second. And the third… Before you know it, you’ll be on a lifelong quest for that one perfect weed. But is there a way to choose in advance between the simply great and the mind-blowing?
Use Our Filtering Options
Our filters let you choose between different cultivars based on such characteristics as climate, plant size, yield, and ease of growing. You can filter out the results even more by selecting your favorite flavors and the level of potency you’re ready to handle. And if you know the meaning of the terms “Indica”, “Sativa”, and “Hybrid”, choosing the right type will tell you a lot about what to expect from both the cultivar and the smoke it produces.
Read Our Researched Tips and Customer Reviews
Once you’ve got the shortlist of strains using our filters, check out each of them and read the detailed info. We’ve taken great pains to make our descriptions graphic and accurate, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from each of our cannabis genetics.

How to Buy Cannabis Seeds Online?
Buying cannabis seeds through the Fast Buds website is as easy as online shopping in general. Just choose the seeds you like, add them to your cart, and proceed to checkout. You’ll be able to choose your favorite payment and delivery methods, default discreet or extra stealthy packaging and fill out the address. After that, confirm your order and wait for its speedy and safe arrival.
How Important is Aroma?
It’s no secret that most seed shoppers choose their cannabis strain by smell. Hence all those delicious-sounding names. The special chemicals in the plant called terpenes not only determine the flavor of your smoke but affect the character of the high. Experienced users can even deduce the type of the effect by the description of the weed’s aroma. And so will you someday, and we envy you a lot of exciting discoveries that you’ll make along the way.
The Legal Bit
Our beautifully packaged seeds are really collectibles. Check out your local legislation: chances are that you’re prohibited from germinating hemp seeds and growing plants from them. What you do with your purchase is solely your responsibility. We urge you not to germinate our cannabis seeds if your local law says it’s illegal.
Is cannabis legal?
The legality of cannabis plants varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Also, some limits to their cultivation may apply. Be sure to check your local laws.
Not sure which cannabis seeds to choose?
Any cannabis seed bought from us will turn into a first-rate plant. To find one tailored to your needs, use filters, descriptions, and customer reviews, or chat with our customer service.
What do cannabis seeds look like?
About 3 millimeters big, weed seeds are roundish, with only a slight elongation. They are covered by a firm outer shell that (in mature seeds) is dark, often spotted or striped.
How to germinate cannabis seeds?
Keep them warm and moist between wet paper towels and put them in the soil as soon as they’ve shown taproot.
How to store cannabis seeds?
Best store them in the fridge door or in a dark cool place. At all costs, avoid exposing them to moisture.
How many cannabis seeds per plant?
Experienced growers will get their harvest of buds from every seed. Beginners are encouraged to buy twice as many to compensate for fatal mistakes and emergencies.
