Storyline

To fight a poisonous weed, ranchers are burning their land. Gene is the Inspector brought in and he recommends spraying. The spraying goes well until the Larabee ranch is reached. When Larrabee refuses to allow the equipment on his land, Gene has it sprayed by airplane. Cattle must stay off recently sprayed land and when a Larrabee man shoots down the plane, the crash sends the cattle stampeding toward the newly sprayed land.

Autry movie with sufficient songs and laughs
3 November 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Autry and "Frog" are experts on weed control and staunch advocates of herbicide use in this fast-paced oater. Brought in to help control an epidemic of "devil weed" that's killing cattle, they must overcome opposition to chemical solutions and figure out which one of them gets the girl (Autry, of course). Along the way there are some pretty amusing scenes, including one where Frog's shot out of a cannon to impress the gal. When one angry ranch hand shoots down the airplane Autry and Co. are spraying with, it's up to Gene to stop the stampede that ensues and save the day for a chemical future.
