Effect of weed removal timing and row spacing on soil moisture in corn (Zea mays)



Effect of weed removal timing and row spacing on soil moisture in corn (Zea mays)



Weed Technology 20(2): 399-409



Glyphosate-resistant maize was grown in 38- and 76-cm row spacings at two locations in 2001 to examine the effect of weed competition and row spacing on soil moisture. Volumetric soil moisture was measured to a depth of 0.9 m in 18-cm increments. Glyphosate was applied when average weed canopy heights reached 5, 10, 15, 23, and 30 cm. Season-long weed interference reduced soil moisture compared with the weed-free controls.
