Field experiments were conducted during 1999-2001 in Poland to study the effect of different herbicide treatments and methods of application on weed control and green matter yield of silage maize. Visual assessment showed 91-93% of broadleaf and 41-98% of grass weeds were controlled. Analyses of weed fresh mass/1 m2 have shown that weed control was better using recommended rates applied on 3-4 leaves of maize compared to split application of the tested herbicide treatments. All the herbicides applied also influenced the yield of green matter.
