Combining Interseeded Cover Crops with Banded Herbicides for Weed Control in Sweet Corn
Bellinder, Robin R.; Miller, Andrew; Kirkwyland, Jonathan
Recent research has shown that applying herbicides to a narrow band over the crop row (banding) can reduce herbicide use by two thirds in corn. The increasing number of postemergence herbicides for corn will allow growers to control weeds that “escape” preemergence banded herbicides. Additionally, interceded cover crops may provide late season weed suppression.
