dc.description
dc.description A brief background is given on the reasoning on the application of herbicides on fallow land to control weed infestation. Erosion is cited as being one reason. North Dakota didn't use this method due to the increased possibility of crop damage in non-fallow years. Command, clomazone, controls several types of broadleaf and grass weeds. Cereal grains are often planted in fields that were fallow. Command was hard on wheat, barley and oats. The methods and results of a 1986 to 1990 study of clomazone and clomazone-atrazine mixtures in fallow. Either of these were most effective when the soil is moist during weed emeregence. Green foxtail wasn't controlled very well by either mixture. Also, the possibility of wheat injury the year after application to fallow land could not be eliminated altogether.
