Both rows were cultivated. The weeds which couldn't be killed with a cultivator cut this farmer's yield by 17 bushels per acre. Here's a field that was not treated with a pre-emergence herbicide. Note the heavy,grass infestation in the row, which was not removed by cultivation. You can rely on cultivating to control weeds between rows but for the rest you'll need to rely on pre-emergence band treatments. A heavy infestation like this could trim yields by 20 bushels. - *•-;,{< Notice how effectively a 12>inch band treatment of Sima- zine has controlled the weeds in these corn rows. The area between the rows is still thick with weeds, but a good fob of cultivating within a day or so will take core of these. 'Timely cultivation must go hand>ln-hand with the use of chemical weed treatment. Either cultivation or chemical treatment will give fair control of weeds but a combination of the two will give best results. . ^•pps^'-^n^ •-••T^nv,.
