Vegetation Management in Sweet Corn


Evaluate Surpass (acetochlor), Frontier (dimethenamid), Tough (pyridate), and Accent (nicosulfuron), for weed control and crop tolerance, and develop appropriate weed control programs to minimize impact of atrazine tolerant weeds and proso millet.

Determine tolerance of sweet corn to propane flaming with emphasis on early postemergence applications.

Determine impact of cover crop residues on weed emergence, herbicide efficacy, and sweet corn growth in both minimum tillage and conventional tillage systems.

Evaluate a novel four-row planter design for planting in conventional tillage and no-till environments in several different cover crop residues
