Winter Wheat (Triticum aestivum) Response to Herbicides Applied at Three Growth Stages

  • Duane A. Martin (a1), Stephen D. Miller (a1) and Harold P. Alley (a1)

Abstract

Several labeled herbicide treatments reduced winter wheat height and grain yield when applied at different growth stages in 1984 and 1985. Yield reductions were related to reduced spike production. Wheat height and yield generally were greatest when herbicides were applied at Zadoks' Stage 29 and lowest at Stage 13. Herbicide treatments did not affect wheat kernels per spike, kernel weight, volume weight, or germination either year. However, most herbicide treatments either increased or decreased seed protein content, depending on the year.
