Agronomy Tip: Use Cultural Practices to Manage Weeds
Stevan Knezevic, Ph.D., weed management specialist at the University of Nebraska advises not to overlook your field borders when managing weeds.
“This is where employing sound agronomic practices will prove to be especially beneficial, including tillage and crop rotation,” Knezevic says. “Any uncontrolled weeds will produce seeds. If you don’t control them well and let them drop seeds, you’re going to fight them for at least three to five more years into the future.”
