Figure 3. Examples of corn growth and developmental difference as influenced by the four cover crop termination methods. A: young corn plants in the Planting/Herbicide treatment. B: young corn plants representative of the other three treatments. C: mid-season difference between plants of Planting/Herbicide (right 3 rows) and those representative of the other treatments (left 3 rows). D: while the other treatments were at full anther extrusion, plants of the Planting/Herbicide treatment were at least 4 leaf stages behind.
