Insect Management: Adult palestriped flea beetles often migrate to seedling alfalfa stands. Adults feed on the upper leaf tissues leaving windows. Seedling alfalfa can often sustain much feeding damage without hurting stand establishment.
Weed Control: Both Raptor and Pursuit can be used on
seedling alfalfa. The advantages of Raptor are that it will control lambs
quarter, sowthistle and grasses which are not controlled by Pursuit. It
also has less soil residue and is not as much of a problem to sensitive
crops grown in rotation. The advantage of Pursuit is that it has long
soil residue and will control multiple flushes of broadleaf weeds. In
some cases, combining these two herbicides will be a good option.
