Weed Management In Seed Corn Production

Weed management in seed corn production fields is challenging because inbred corn lines can be sensitive to various herbicides, which reduces the potential herbicide options for managing weeds. Additionally, seed corn does not produce a tight canopy, particularly after detasseling, allowing light to penetrate to the soil resulting in the potential for further weed flushes later in the season. Therefore, a successful weed management program includes herbicides with good soil residual characteristics.
