This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the North-Central, and Southern U.S. develop corn herbicide management strategies that ensure effective weed control and maximum yield. The effects of early-season weed infestations on corn yield are described, and the critical period of weed control defined. Three herbicide management strategies are presented, along with research results showing the relative effectiveness of these strategies and the need for comprehensive residual herbicide treatments.
