Abstract

One of two contrasting methods might be used to control weeds in rank growing crops such as cotton, sugar cane, milo and corn:

1. A temporary sterilization of the soil to prevent the growth of weed seedlings and protect the crop;

2. A series of contact sprays beginning with a premergence treatment and following through with one or more post-emergence sprays until the crop is ready to lay by.
