It has been known since 1952 that, under certain conditions, treating winter cereals in winter with DNC increases the yield of grain and straw (in addition to the increase obtained by controlling weeds). After the heavy, late frosts of 1955-6, it was found, however, that even the most frost-resistant varieties of winter barley, wheat and spelt had become more susceptible to cold after treatment with DNC.
