Abstract

There is an increased interest in the use of cover crops due to the many agronomic and environmental benefits they offer. An important consideration when incorporating cover crops into the system is their termination. Failure to completely control cover crops at planting results in them acting as a weed and competing with the crop. Several factors influence the effectiveness of burndown treatments, including the cover crop species and growth stage, the herbicides and rates used, application parameters and environment.
