Information presented in this publication was compiled from MU field experiments over a 12-year period to determine how tillage practices and herbicide application rates and timing affect weed control and grain yield in field corn.

Research fieldThis publication examines four aspects of corn production in areas especially sensitive to the environmental effects of agricultural practices:

  • Effect of management practices on weed control with atrazine.
  • Weed control in no-till, herbicide-resistant corn.
  • Herbicide activity in corn using a cover crop.
  • Weed interference and nitrogen accumulation by grass weeds in corn.

This publication is part of a series of Integrated Pest Management manuals prepared by the MU Plant Protection Programs.
