Atrazine And Non-Atrazine Herbicide Comparisons In Conventional Till Corn, Fred Roeth, Alex Martin Jan 2002

Atrazine And Non-Atrazine Herbicide Comparisons In Conventional Till Corn, Fred Roeth, Alex Martin

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Sequential herbicide applications (preemergence followed by postemergence) were more consistent in weed control across four environments because the postemergence treatments controlled weed escapes and second flushes. Singular herbicide treatments were less effective in that regard. Several single applications gave good control but not the excellent control of the sequential treatments. Atrazine in the preemergence application failed to control velvetleaf, but provided good control when used postemergence. The non-atrazine herbicides were at least as effective as the atrazine herbicides.

Although not all herbicides were completely effective in this study, various ones performed well, including atrazine and non-atrazine treatments. The atrazine treatments cost less than most other treatments. The sequential application strategy was consistently better than a single application because the postemergence followup treatment controlled the escapes and second flushes. Single treatments were at a disadvantage in that regard; however, several preemergence, non-atrazine herbicide treatments were noteworthy in their performance.
