Managing Quackgrass as a Cover Crop in Corn
Gift, N.; Hahn, R.R.; Mt. Pleasant, J.
Background and justification: A field experiment was to be conducted in 1998 at a site with heavy quackgrass infestation in NY to determine optimal weed control conditions and quackgrass suppression strategies to manage it as a cover crop in corn. The perennial and pernicious weed quackgrass (Elytrigia repens) can be a costly and difficult weed to control in field corn.
