Keeping the soil surface covered. Hoeing and undersowing in maize - renewed interest?



Keeping the soil surface covered. Hoeing and undersowing in maize - renewed interest?



DLG Mitteilungen 101(8): 449-451



Studies at Tachenhausen indicated that maize hoeing did not increase grain yields. Undersowing with Trifolium sp. or Pisum sp. when maize plants were 10-20 cm high in conjunction with banded applications of 2 litres Mais-Certrol (atrazine + bromoxynil)/ha gave acceptable yields (7.39 and 7.26 t/ha, resp.), compared with 6.96 t/ha with mechanical hoeing alone; hoeing + banded herbicide application gave yields of 7.71 t/ha.
