POSSIBILITIES OF WEED CONTROL IN SPRING CEREALS USING SMALL HERBICIDE DOSES IN POLAND CONDITIONS
2009, 10 (4) p. 433-437
Optimized application of the preparations aims at the utilization of the current state of knowledge, extension services and technical potential of sprayers in order to apply herbicides in the amounts required to achieve a specific objective, at the same time not exceeding the recommended dose of the preparation. The choice of a herbicide for a given level of weed infestation and development phases of weeds is a key element in weed control strategy. Weed control in spring cereals in Poland is based on the use of foliar applications. In studies on spring cereals the application of herbicides in the split dose system, using preparations designed for early weed growth stages, made it possible to obtain high effectiveness of weed control.
