Effect of Seedbed Preparation for Corn on Distribution of Weed Seed

  • G. A. Wicks (a1) and B. R. Somerhalder (a1)

Abstract

The Nebraska till-plant system of planting corn (Zea mays L.) moves weed seed away from the corn row. A reduction of weed seed in the row reduces the number of weeds emerging with the corn. In contrast, the conventional disking and plowing system of seedbed preparation does not remove weed seed from the row.
